Life's a beach in a washer

Very long ago on a warm summer day two little girls felt like going to the beach for the day. They had a warm bowl of peaches and cream oatmeal for breakfast and headed to their room for their swimsuits, towels and beach bags. After donning their little pudgy selves in their suits and sunglasses and packing their beach bags to the hilt with dolls, books, a shaved headed Barbie and some snacks they headed to the kitchen. The older sister climbed to the top of the fridge and took their bags and placed them under the cupboard. She then opened the washer which was right next to the fridge and filled it with cool water and hit the off button. She then helped her little sister up to the fridge and they both crept down and dangled their feet into the washer. Now their grandaddy was no where to be found, so they knew they could relish this moment for a while. The made juicy drinks, snacked on crackers and Vienna sausages and talked about what a lovely summer they where having so far, they even let the shaved headed Barbie join in on the fun. The whole time they wore their sunglasses and beach hats to get the whole beach effect. After about two hours of dangling their feet and chitchatting about little girl talk they decided it was time to get back home. They drained the water out of the washer and packed up their bags. When they returned home, they changed out of their clothes and took a huge bubble bath together. They then got in fresh clothes and enjoyed the rest of their summer afternoon buy coloring and eating Popsicle's in the sun.
This is the first of a summer series I am starting this season. I am taking my memories and turning them into short stories for all to read. I am possibly thinking about a new blog just for my short stories for you to enjoy.
Until I blog again ~ Gal Molly
