My sweet little Anthony turned 5 today. For months he had been saying he wanted to go to the beach for his birthday. So, yesterday we loaded up about 8:00 and headed over to DeGray Lake in Arkadelphia. DeGray is a beautiful lake and has a very nice beach area with a few shade trees, picnic tables, and grills. I was worried about it being too hot (with the heat index it was supposed to be 108 degrees), but there was a nice breeze off the lake and was a little overcast in the morning. We grilled hot dogs for lunch and stayed at the beach almost 4 hours. We left right when it was starting to get really hot, headed home to eat cupcakes and open presents. It was a great day, and Anthony said it was his best birthday ever!
