This week the weather finally warmed up enough, so I took the kids to Clearwater Beach in the late morning. It was wonderful to be out in the sun and hear the surf against the sand again! The kids had so much fun playing on the playground (they have a great one over by Pier 60 ), digging in the sand, and The Older had a chance to fly his kite! Thank you, Dollar Tree, for having the kites available ‘off season.’

There were some tears when we had to leave, but once I pointed this guy out, all sadness was forgotten as we watched him soar across the water. I’m glad my children can still see the magic in their surroundings and appreciate nature :-)
