Watching a little one run on the beach.
Playing in the touch pool with a bigger one.
Laughing in amazement as half a dozen children all run in the surf at once, soaking themselves to varying degrees despite the cool wind.
Feeling ever-so thankful for the rental-house washing machine. And for Costco brownie mix. And for the fact that I picked up UNO Attack before we left. Not every day on the coast is sunny, after all. But rain or sun, every day this week has been much enjoyed.
