There are many things to be grateful for while living in the Chicagoland, and let me tell you a secret: the cold winter isn't one of them. What we should all take advantage of are summers spent by Lake Michigan. Its many secluded and some not so secluded shores offer a variety of family activities and luckily plenty of photo opportunities.
This sweet boy just turned one and it is impossible (and let's face it who would want to) keep his curious and adventurous personality at bay from exploring this picturesque beach together with his loving family. Look at those smiles!
