We started our day with Minion cereal. They aren't usually allowed to have sugary cereal, but this was a special morning! I don't really like cereal or banana flavoured things, so I didn't try any, but... my other half and the girls all swear it's delicious. I'll take their word for it!
We have a nest with eggs at our house! It's under our front porch. We have been using the side door since we found it, but when the girls were here, we had a visitor who came to the front door. They spooked the parents, who flew away, so we took advantage and I let the girls peek through the boards to see the eggs. I am really hoping that the birds don't get too spooked with all the coming and going that is vacation, and stick around until the eggs hatch.
We hit up the beach, of course! It was a gorgeous day and the girls had a blast. We dug in the sand, built castles, swam in the waves, and Tess caught as many of those little bug things that zip through the salt water and burrow into the sand as she could haha. She is bug-obsessed... the slimier, the better!
I also found a mermaid. :)
After the beach, we went to a little park by the river. There were some lawn games and a parachute for the kids to play with. Perfect scenery and a perfect temperature!
We finished off our day with Fresh Air Films. Every Friday evening of the summer, my town puts on a free movie outside in the park at dusk. This week, the movie was Back to the Future. I somehow have lived almost 26 years and hadn't seen it yet! The movie didn't start until after 9, so we didn't get to stay to see the end, but I definitely want to see the rest of it.
All in all, it was a PERFECT first Friday of summer vacation! Check out my Instagram for more pictures of our adventures :)
