day at the beach

What a day!
We had an open house scheduled today as well as another showing scheduled outside of that. So given that we needed to be out of the house for the majority of the day, we decided to make a trip out to the beach. We headed to South Haven for the day and it was the perfect day for it. We packed a lunch, ate at Van Buren State Park and hung out on the beach there for a bit before heading north to South Haven.
The kids had so much fun! I have lots to share of our day, and tons of pictures. I was so excited once I got home because after going through all the images I took today, I'm actually very happy with so many of them! I did everything in manual settings and even though it was a little tricky because it went back and forth between overcast and sunny pretty quickly all day today, I think they're some of the best I've come out with so far. I am so excited to go through them more thoroughly!
As of now though, it's getting late --actually I guess it's relatively early, but it's been a long day in the sun and sand, so I'm trying to head to bed.

I'll leave you with just one picture from today
and I'll get some more up tomorrow. Like I said, I took a TON!Okay... maybe two.
can I slide in three or four?

All right, I have to cut myself off. I'll get some more up tomorrow.
