A day at the beach

Aspen kept asking me where the beach was and I was like, umm, try not in Utah? I didn't know how to explain to her that we're pretty landlocked here in the desert. But we figured out that the pink blanket makes great sand and the grey rug makes great water.

Aspen says something like "gella" for umbrella, and I never, ever know what she's asking for. But eventually I figured out she wanted a beach umbrella like Caillou so I fished it out of the closet and set it up on the sand. We went swimming and caught fish and floated on our boat.

We laid on our backs in the water and looked up at the sky. We saw clouds, rainbows (because I still haven't taken down her birthday decorations) and birds.

We enjoyed our private beach for about an hour. When it got boring, we piled up couch cushions and blankets so we could read books before nap time.

I'm trying. I really am.
