Honey, do you remember when..... How many times have you been reminded by your mother about all those awkward, self-conscious moments that occurred while you were growing up? The unpleasant, wish you could disappear moments that seemed to last only about 10 seconds yet felt like you were on a stage in front of thousands of people for an hour. I have had my share, yet recall one such moment. It is 1966, we are in Point Pleasant down at the New Jersey Shore and I was able to bring a friend with us to the beach for the day. The day starts out quite pleasant as we got a good parking spot, got our beach toys, cooler with lunch in it and carried blankets to the beach. Our family began to set up the blankets and then all of us kids had to get slathered with sunscreen. Mom and dad took some pictures of all of us as we started to play in the sand and make castles. My mom kept telling me how cute I am in my new bikini that she made me. The sun started to warm our bodies and soon we were all in the water swimming and playing the day away. My friend and I has such a good time riding the waves, screaming, laughing, pretending we were dolphins, and before you knew it my mom calls us all to come have lunch. My friend and I raced to see who would to the blanket first. We land on the blanket with our hearts racing and our whole body laughing. Finally my mom says, honey “Where is your bathing suit?” To my shock and embarrassment I looked down to a naked five year old little girl and started to cry. Thanks mom for the memories.

Aww! This was cute and fun. I liked the glimpse of the beach and the form of sharing a memory. Good. Just remember to add some extra spaces for easier reading. ^_^

What a cute story. I wonder if Mom forgot something like elastic to make it still fit when wet. A good one. Keep on writing.

Oh, nothing could be worse to a little five year old girl! A cute story! Thanks for sharing it. :)

Certainly an embarrassing moment! You could also help your article to flow more by
breaking it into several paragraphs, and, add dialogue for dramatic effect.
