last weekend we went to the cape to my mom's on what would have been my dad's 80th birthday. we took bunny to the beach and left the little man home with my mom. bunny loved the water. my dad loved the beach, too and i couldn't help but to think how much fun my dad would have had with her, holding her in the water, throwing her up in the air and maybe swimming up and surprising her from the deep. and i can hear the whoop he'd make, when he burst through the surface. in my mind's eye, i see them on the beach holding hands...damn, dad i do miss you.
