I remember waking up early on a hot summer day.
I remember the excitement I felt.
I remember waiting for my dad to take me to the beach.
I remember the jam we played in the car when we were going to the beach.
I remember seeing waves moving while ice cream was melting all over my hands.
I remember my beautiful pink dress, silver shoes and the little Barbie side bag.
I remember the delicious taste of my mom’s cooking.
I remember the excitement on everyone’s face while we were eating the mouth-watering food.
I remember the joy I felt when my grandfather presented me with a doll.
I remember the best Christmas I ever had.
