We were quite the scene with all of our umbrellas, babies, beach bags, and strollers caravanning our way on to the beach and then staking out a spot the size of the lake itself near the teenage lifeguards. I'm quite certain that we were the definition of "birth control" for those young kids. All you need to do to keep 18 year olds from having kids is have them watch a bunch of hot sweaty Moms run around attempting to put sunscreen on our kids, keep them from having mouthfuls of sand for lunch, chase down the tent that almost blew away with a child in it, deal with one meltdown after another, all while trying to make sure our kids don't end up face first in the lake. I'm certain those lifeguards will now run for the hills at the possibility of getting pregnant. Just helping to spread the idea of abstinence one lake trip at a time!
I'm not joking, all those things did happen. But we had a really good time!
