My kids have never been to the beach. They've been to the retention pond lake beaches in our neighborhood, and to the Michigan beach my parents vacation at, but they've never been to "THE LAKE". They've never enjoyed the waves of Lake Michigan knocking them over. I'm taking them. Hopefully soon when Chris is done with his work so he can come with us. I'll be sure to get pictures. It will be hilarious. We're hoping to beat the high-heat hours and let the kids enjoy a bit of shallow wave fun!
