Sand in Your Toes

Sometimes when you have your day wrapped up and nothing much else to do, it's nice to get out of the house and go to the beach.

But wait. That's right! We live in the middle of the desert with the closest beach 300 miles away!

Well, what is a mom if she is not creative?

I give you:

Laughlin AFB Public Beach

It may not have lifeguards.

It may not have lounge chairs or seagulls.

It may not even have water.

But it's a big pile of sand for the kids to run around in, make sand castle, and have a blast.

And even though this is a different kind of beach, it's still good for the soul to get your toes in the sand every once in a while.

And when you lean back and look up over the top of the houses, this is the view that makes it all worth while:


Even Eleuthera can't complete with the sky down here at Laughlin AFB Beach. What a day.....
