Chagrin Falls and Fairport Harbor

We've been trying to explore as much of the area as possible while Jason is in between residency and fellowship. We went to two new places recently!
Chagrin Falls is about twenty miles from our house and it's the sweetest, historic town. The town has a ton of unique boutiques, a popcorn shop, restaurants on the falls and a ice cream shop. It has been so rainy here so the falls were a little dirty but we're hoping that they clear up in a few weeks when we have the grandparents in town.
Once we left the falls, we stopped at a nearby park to let the kids run off some energy before we got back in the car and drove to the beach.
Chagrin Falls will definitely be visited again...and soon! It was so adorable. I hope when we go back I can do a little bit better of a job documenting how cute the town is but for now, you'll just have to trust me.
We left the falls and headed north to the beach. Since we live at the top of Ohio, we are right on the border of Lake Erie. We went to Fairport Harbor Beach for our first beach experience in Ohio. We made sure to pack a beach bag even though the weather was a little gloomy and good thing we did....the kids wanted to make the most out of the trip.
They loved making sand castles, throwing rocks in the lake and even going for a little swim. The water was freezing and it was only in the 60s so it made for a rough day to get in the water.
Daddy was the chosen one to get in the water...he really loves those kiddos and I really love him for taking one for the team.
We got in the car right before dinner and Amelia said she had the best time at the beach. I can't wait to take her to a warm beach where she can search for seashells and starfish (two things that we looked for but couldn't find our our lake beach. HA)
