The girls have been enjoying their summer so far.  They have been hanging out with the neighbors, swimming, staying up late and sleeping in.  Rachel is loving the pool and is trying her darnedest to swim deeper into the pool.  She is so funny to watch with her little butt up in the air and her feet flailing around as she tries to swim down.  She is really becoming a little fish!  

Today, our neighbor asked us to go to the beach her and her kids, so we got our lazy butts in gear and spent the morning at the beach.  I was really glad we finally got around to going.  It was our first trip this summer, believe it or not!   Mike is always wanting to take the girls to the beach, but they don't like to go unless they have a friend along, and Mike doesn't want more kids to keep up with.  It was beautiful weather today and the ocean was really calm.  A calm ocean gave Rachel the opportunity to get out in the water and swim.  And swim she did!  She was in the water for almost three hours straight.  Having another grownup allowed me to focus on Rachel and follow her down the beach when she decided she wanted to "run."  The big girls also got to stay at the beach with their friends when Rachel decided she was ready to go home.  It was a nice day.
