We began the day by a trip to the store because Jeanette and I were going to make dinner for everyone. But Jeanette has been eyeing the Baskin Robbins’ for a couple of days by now so she had to stop.
Then it was another, and longer, day at the beach. The waves were just a tiny bit larger today, so we spent a heck of a lot of time being knocked over by them. By the time we got home, we found lots of sand and rocks in places that you usually don’t.
Once home and after dinner, we had a short birthday party for the August birthday girls Ada (the 10th) and Sofia (the 15th).
And Ada and Sofia went to bed late this night, too.
We also said a goodbye to Dori and dad who left for New York City that night.
We got off to a late start because Ada and Sofia stayed up too late the night before watching a movie, but eventually we made it out to Montauk despite the busy road.
There we went up the Montauk Point Lighthouse, except for Jake who was too little to be let up.
This one is atop the lighthouse, but it was so bright in the back that it is difficult to see, although you can tell it was a little breezy. After that it was off to get lunch and then to Hither Hills beach. There was some confusion as to whether the beach was closed once the lifeguards went off duty so we didn’t stay too long.
We spent some time laughing at Jake, who doesn’t like the water too much, but did enjoy chasing the seagulls around.
If that wasn’t enough excitement, Libby and Peter treated the kids to ice cream on the way home.
Like yoga, Ada doesn’t quite get it.
