A Day At The Beach

Yes, Chicago has beaches! Miles of them. Nearly 15 miles, I believe. The past weekend was warm and muggy so we thought going to the beach would be nice to do. Chicago's summer has been unusually mild. The result? Lake Michigan was chillier than usual. The grimace on Gilbert's face should tell it all!

I was determined to get him out up to his neck so he could feel the waves and current on him. You know, to build his balance.

Well, we got out to the desired depth when a big wave (well, big to Gilbert!) smacked him in the face. He wanted up and immediately! Dad got cold as well with a wet Little Man pressed up against him!
