After catching four-year-old Ryan with his third stolen cookie of the afternoon I really needed to take a quiet walk away from our family picnic on the beach…
He was ready for me to leave too and I can still hear him say “I’ve got this beach figured out mom, take a hike.”
Grandpa went out to the boat with his book.
While John and I went around to the opposite side of the island leaving Ryan skipping rocks with my brother.
I should have known better. Walking back to our picnic site I heard a slightly worried voice saying “don’t tell your mom, ok?”
