My Backyard Ocean

Everyday I looked out my back window. Would I get to play in the ocean today? Mom seemed to love that question, smiling as Nathan and I pulled on our swimsuits and ran to the backyard. I thought we were the coolest kids on the block, no one else on our street had a personal ocean. All the neighbors would come play with us sometimes, splashing around till the sun fell beneath the waves.

Those were always my favorite summer memories.
