Today we went to Shadow Lake with Amy and her kids
for a last day of summer vacation beach party!!!
about 20 years ago, I went to Shadow Lake with some friends of mine.
One of them had her little baby girl with her.
I watched how cute and sweet it was for her to play with her daughter
in the sand on the shore of the lake, in the summer sun.
And I dreamed…
I thought about how I might take my baby there someday.
And today, I did just that.
Only you are no baby anymore.
And it wasn't nearly as nostalgic as all of that.
We just had a great time, building new memories
of real things that are better than I ever could have dreamed
of for myself and a family.
You are my real, always sunshine.
