Beach Day with Dad
By Kailee Smith
I remember a time when my dad and I spent a day at the beach together. That day was very important to me because I don’t get to spend a lot of time with my dad. My dad and I did a lot of things together on that day at the beach.
The first thing we did when we got to the beach was going on the swing set. Then my dad gently helped me on the swing. The seat was really hot so I only got to go on it a few times cause my butt was burning.
After that we were hungry, so we went to go get lunch. The little diner was on the dock that went out into the ocean. It was really cool, and there were roller skating waitresses with really cool accents.
The last thing we did was my dad saw something in the blue, ocean water. Me and my dad went so far out to get to what he saw that I was on my daddy’s shoulders. My dad reached down with his hand and got it, and what do you know it was a creamy, white sand dollar. It was so smooth, it felt like air.
That’s what my dad and I did together at the beach that day. So whether you’re at home or at the beach, your dad will always be watching you. So that is why the day was so important to me, because I have a best friend who’s my dad.
My Daughter wrote this without my knowledge!
I was going through some old word documents and happened to come across this letter my daughter had written about a time when I took her to the beach. I was so moved when I read this that it really made me sit back and think about just how much of an impact we carry over on to our children! I actually cried after I read this and thought it would be a great post for today! So love your children with all of your heart for they will be grown before you know it!
