But he did not really like being left alone on the rocks.
Lisa and Aedhan test the waters.
Aedhan spent some time finding the perfect rocks. Here he shows off his finds.
Of course, any child near the water at the beach will inevitably fall into the lake, as Aedhan did. He got so excited by the refreshingly cool water and the sand running over and under his feet, that he fell backwards into the surf. In this photo Aedhan gives Daddie the wet rock he found in the water after falling in. As always, Daddie gets to carry the wet rock and the wet child back to the car. It reminded me of all of the times my father, Terry, carried me and my brother, Si, soaking wet, from the beach to the car.
Aedhan, slightly chilled, awaits Mommie's return with DRY CLOTHES.
Aedhan's pensive moment.
The waves crash onto the beach as we relax, avoiding our return to the big city.
After the change.
Ready to go.
Look at my new hat!!
On the way back home to Chicago (about three minutes before a nap).

As part of the deal with Aedhan, we took him to McDonald's, so he could collect the cars from the movie 'CARS.' He got Lightning McQueen the 1st time and Sally the 2nd time. Before we left town, we stopped at McDonald's for a Happy Meal. We each got a Happy Meal with a different car. He got Doc Hudson, Mater"the tow truck," and Ramone. Let's just say I don't want to have to eat another Happy Meal in a LONG TIME. At least in Indiana and Michigan, I could just buy the cars.
