Here is the view from the bottom, where Lydia stayed with her grandparents and cousin Max while Nathaniel, the boys, my sister-in-law, and I climbed to the top. After climbing, I was really glad that Lydia didn't want to climb it; it would have been really hard to help her up!
Nathaniel on the way up.
Here are the boys on the top, with a nice view of Lake Michigan.
We did it! The adults only climbed once, but the boys ran up it twice. Of course, they don't sink in the sand as much as we did!
