A day at the beach

Andrew and I surprised my parents and showed up at their church yesterday for mother's day. We had plans to get together with the family for supper later, so we decided to spend the afternoon at the beach in Grand Haven. 

It was a beautiful day. Sunny, but with a cool breeze. We spent some time walking the boardwalk, got some ice cream, and lounged by the lighthouse.

(It would seem that taking a selfie and smiling at the same time is not something I can do!)

There were even a few boats out on the lake.

I have to imagine that it was chilly out there!

It was a great relaxing afternoon. I need more days like that!


  1. How sweet Heather!! As a mama I know how much a surprise like that means!! And I bet it was is a cool day here in NoAla but I am not complaining. It will be hot before I know it.

  2. I know your Mom was thrilled. Many years ago, I visited your area. So glad you two enjoyed some relaxing time at the lake. Very nice pictures. Hope you have a nice week.

  3. I know your Mom was thrilled too. It was a wonderful surprise - thank you!

  4. You're concentrating so hard on taking that selfie! :)

  5. Awesome. Any time spent where water meets both sky and land, is of infinite value. And you sleep so well that night! I hope you all had a truly wonderful Mother's Day. xoxo
