My parents saved the best of our toys from when we were kids. The Fisher Price gear waited nearly 25 years to be loved again. Now the beach toys are back.
The absolutely most perfect place to spend a day is the beach. Aspen Beach at Gull Lake features a long shallow shoreline where kids can run and play. Bring the buckets and shovels and sit on the grass while they dig and build and collaborate for hours. Too bad it took until the last weekend of summer for me to discover it.
