Day 27: Your Favorite Place

The beach. Plain and simple.

I used to look forward to going when I was little. My parents would wake me up in the wee hours of the morning and we would set off for the beach. When the sun started to rise we would stop for breakfast. I can still feel the butterflies I would get when we would start getting closer to the beach. I couldn't wait to get there and see the ocean.

I went to the beach on my honeymoon. Although, since it was March, it was still pretty cold. Kent and I still had a wonderful time and many memories were made.

I can still see the look on Jon Kent's face when he was finally old enough to know what going to the beach meant. He sprang out of bed that morning and was ready to go. When we finally got close enough so he could see the water, his eyes got huge and the biggest smile you could imagine came across his face. It was the perfect start to a great vacation.

The beach.. my favorite place.
