Shadow Lake w/ friends

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.
