On Saturday we decided that the mess could wait.
We woke up and went to the beach.
Completely last minute.
To capture the very last bit of summer.
Because this girl starts kindergarten next Monday.
And this girl has been begging to go back to the beach for weeks!
Because there is something so precious about making these
kinds of memories when you are young.
Because even though they are gone from our lives,
our loved ones still have birthdays.
Because Daddy will always save your toes from the freezing water.
Because this guy made me laugh the entire drive there.
And the entire drive back.
Caitlin even told us were were laughing too much.
Because the Crutchfields were here.
Late on a Saturday.
Enjoying the sun and sand.
Enjoying the last bits of summer.
Because the messes can always wait.
