We had a fun outing yesterday. We packed up half the house and went to the "beach" for the afternoon. Yes, well, it's kind of a man-made beach, but for Kansas that's about as good as it gets. The boys played in the sand and eventually the water, Charlotte worked on her tan and Tyler and I enjoyed not having to discipline kids for a couple hours. I also found out if I just put dinner out on a blanket and tell them to use their hands they'll actually eat! It really was a fun afternoon, we'll be doing it again soon.
