Even though our first week of summer vacation was last week, our first day of anything fun was today. We went to the beach for a few hours this morning. It was warm and gorgeous and fairly quiet.
As I was sitting in the shade with the baby, I watched my children splashing and laughing … and getting along!
And I overheard my 5yo say to my 8yo, as they were running along the sand toward the coolness of the water:
“Who could ask for a better day?”
A smile appeared on my face. And a sense of gratitude for more things than I could count.
And even though I forgot my camera on the kitchen counter, I think that quote sums it up better than any photo possibly could.
