I've been going through some photos I've printed but haven't done anything with... and when I saw this one I was reminded of what a beautiful October day it was... I was getting ready to go see my dad in South Dakota, for the first time since he moved there... and it was going to be my first time away from my family for longer than a few hours... so it was a big deal, us doing something together.
Steve decided since it was such a bright sunny day, we should go to the beach... it wasn't warm enough for swim suits, but it was warm enough to build a sand castle. This is something Rainee and I do every time we go to the beach... it's our thing to do... we get full of sand and of course we can't help but get wet... our sand castles don't last for long... but the memory is so fresh, full of laughter and fun... together.
So when I saw this picture I wanted to remember, not just this moment but also all the other times we've made our sand castles together... it really is my favorite part about going to the beach, plus I know once she gets older, she'll be spending time with her friends and not making sand castles... so I had to make this as a reminder of how very special those times together are, to me.
