we had a busy day.
we packed a picnic lunch
and made our way to deer lake state park
where the sand dunes and (almost)
private beach awaited.
after nap we headed back out to the seaside park.
and then out to dinner
at the great southern café.
it. was. good.
this was our only meal out,
since we have a full kitchen and nine people.
we have found its way easier (and cheaper) to eat at home
but it was nice to get some fresh seafood.
since we promised madeline some ice cream,
we topped off dinner with a few scoops at the local ice cream shop,
twinkle lights and all.
