Summer night at the Beach

Last night we had the beach almost to ourselves....except for a guy flying a kite and a few other people.
After I got off work, I picked up my daughter and the boys to go to the beach. It started out as questionable, due to the winds and color of the sky. We all had our sand toys packed and beach towels. The look of excitement on 3 little boys faces helped us decide to try the beach and if it was too windy or cold, we could come back, but at least we can say we gave it a try.
Well, when we got there, it was like God erased all the dark spots in the sky and the sun was shining so brightly. It was actually very warm and the winds were not too bad....every now and then you would feel a little sting on the leg. Noah and I were standing by the edge of the water and I looked down and a shiny new quarter was lying in the sand and the sun was shining on it and it almost looked like a light coming out of the sand. I picked it up and gave it to Noah and told him that was our special shiny quarter........We all got our feet wet and played a while and even fed the seagulls some special K bites that I had in my bag.....Gray Loves birds, so that made him smile real big.
The boys were getting hungry, so we decided to pack up and go. We let Noah pick where we would go to eat and he chose Red Robin....our favorite place.....He loves the mac & cheese. We were sitting eating dinner at almost 9:00, but it is summertime.....and the living is easy.....no rules....A very fun night was had by all..............Oh, that shiny quarter I found and gave to Noah, is now in the candy machine at Red Robin......
What could get any better than this?
