I took my girls to meet my friend Carly’s new pup and visit the little beach by her house. Who knew a an hour at the beach on a Tuesday afternoon would turn into something so special. The girls literally ran right into the water with their clothes on. They built sand castles. They got totally sandy and yucky and loved every minute. I wish we could go back every day – it’s the kind of experience I want my girls to have. Some place outside and wonderful that touches their senses and excites their soul. Where they are free to explore and find treasures likes shells.
