We took Ty to a local lake with a small beach for a few hours today and he loved it. We were rained on a few times and eventually gave up on waiting out additional showers but the time we had together was so worthwhile. Ty loved walking into calm water and "swimming" where he could touch the lake floor. We shared the beach with only two additional families so it was as perfect as any rainy day could be. We picnicked under a shelter while it rained and watched the serene lake. I wished my camera could have captured the glitter effect of small raindrops hitting a lagoon of smooth water but I suppose some visions are gifts meant only to be enjoyed in person.
