An overnight with Brendan ...

It has been a really long time since Brendan had a sleepover at The Beach House; so we decided it was high time. Friday was it! I picked up Little Fellow after work, we did some grocery shopping, and then we headed on home.

 I love having this little child come over to my house. He loves it here. We just hang out together and it is usually very relaxing.

 I put my tent up in the playroom and that is where Brendan slept Friday night. He FINALLY honked out by about 10:15 and slept all the way until 7:30 Saturday morning.
 We decided to go to the township park Saturday morning. Brendan had such fun here. He is a very mechanical and determined little person.
 I loved watching him work this shovel. He really kept at it until he had it mastered. This is a VERY heavy shovel, and Brendan was super strong about it.

 Brendan climbed to the top of the tallest slide. I love his facial expressions!

 It was a beautiful, but very cool, end of June Saturday morning. It was perfect for running around at a playground.

 And also, for the first time, we walked this super nice trail that winds around wetlands and beautiful woodsy places. Our little dear was running and fell down, scraping the skin off his fourth finger as well as his left knee. He cried a little bit, but then got up and kept walking--although we switched directions and instead of heading deeper into the woods, we did a turn-about back to the car ...
where some nice clear cold water awaited his wounds. He was a brave little sweetheart! I love him so.

This is really quite a beautiful little place to hike, don't you think?
