Sometimes you just need to get out and do something fun yet relaxing. If I felt like that in California, I would head to the beach but Arkansas doesn’t have any beaches. So, we headed to the lake and had the best day! When we got there, only one other mom and her two girls were there. It felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves. The lake is beautiful and surrounded by the Ozark National Forest. There’s a little beach area with sand and a buoyed off area for swimming. To top it all off, the water was warm but not too warm. It was just right! Oakley loved to play in the sand and swim in the water. I held her out with my hands under her arms and she kicked her feet like crazy. She was happy as could be! By the end of the day, she got brave enough to try to eat the sand. I figured that was our queue to leave lol. She’s my little water baby and I think we will have plenty more lake days in our future!
We came home and I kept telling Andrew all about the lake. He got us some floaties at the store and is excited to go on a Friday that he has off! Stay tuned!
