We love St. Anthony's Sandbar!

Some of our friends introduced us to the St. Anthony sandbar this past week. It's our newest addiction. It's a nice, cool river with a diving board, roped-off shallow area, floating dock (Zach calls it a barge), playground, tunnel slide, and plenty of sand!

We went back yesterday after Zach got off work. We packed snacks and ate on the dock. I taught Zach how to make a sand castle Garner-style (dripping the sand into turrets), and wow-ed the people around us. A couple kids copied our technique after a while. =] It was fun to feel like a couple of teenagers on summer break.
Also, I am proud to say that I have gone off the diving board a total of 3 times. I plug my nose every time, but I think it still counts.
If you're in the St. Anthony area, you gotta check it out. It's a turn right off Main St, close to the highway.

Ok, me and my friends use to go there too, and I hope the quality of people has improved, whenever we went the teenagers would just be swearing up a storm!

Ummm- that's awesome. Why did we never discover this place. And also- cute pic!
P.S. Your crafty projects are uber cute and I'm seriously sad that I didn't get some of that crafty talent. So- you need to move here so we can have our sister sewing parties again and a little Stace can rub off on me. Ka-peeesh?
