Today my son reminded me, “You said we’re going to the beach.” He’s right I did say that, so today I stayed true to my word and took the kids to the beach. We changed into our swimsuits, greased ourselves up with sunblock and walked the fifteen minute walk to Ala Moana Beach Park.
The kids and I spent nearly three hours swimming, building sandcastles and sunbathing. It was a lot of fun and it felt good to just lay in the hot sun and then swim in the cool water. After playtime was over we washed off at the outdoor beach showers and walked back home. I told my son to remind me next Sunday, “Dad it’s beach day.”
