Today Em and I took the kids to the beach. We had fun for about an hour and then the kids decided they were ready to go.

For the time we were there the kids and I had a blast tossing a little water football back and forth. For awhile splashing dad was fun. Once I splashed back, the kids decided we should play catch some more. Mom spent most of the time tanning on the sand. She did get a bit darker (but not much).

For my part I had fun splashing with the kids and wound up a little burnt on my shoulders and back. Hopefully by the end of summer I’ll get rid of this wonderful “office” tan. You know, that one that gathers on your forearms and face, but nowhere else? Yeah, that type.

I think this could become a Sunday afternoon tradition.
