Wonderful day in Paradise

We had a wonderful day today in Paradise....after we found parking, that is :)

Willie, Addison, and I met up with some friends for a picnic at the beach. It was such a pretty day out. Everyone else thought so as well. For some reason, I always think my great ideas are only mine and I need to learn one day, that if it's something I think is a great idea, the rest of the state probably agrees. Therefore....don't do it!! But all's well that ends well!

We grilled up some pork chops, sweet peppers, and pine apple (not all together) and had a side of macaroni salad. It was all delish...and typically summer!

The kids played in the grass for a bit
And once they got bored, we decided to take them down to the water and see how they liked it. Addison of course, was in love. I think I could have just left her there all day and she would have been perfectly content.

But alas, my shivering daughter finally caught my attention and I brought her back to the table, where we proceeded to have a teensy tiny little melt down. All it took was a little momma time and my angel was back, though!

We ended the afternoon pretty shortly after she woke up, came home, and put her to bed. It was, despite everything that should have made it a frustrating day, one of those days in paradise that I will remember from our first summer as a family.
