Emily's new orange striped swimsuit!
"I can jump farther then you, Emily"Â Kellie called between giggles, as she ran down the same pier thatÂ her sister had jumped off justÂ moments ago.Kellie's Neon Green swimsuit!
As she surfaced the water she heardÂ Emily saying "Nope!Â That wasn't as far as me!"
Kellie looked back to where she thought she hadÂ landed in the water.Â She was sure it was farther than where her sister hadÂ landed and was about to say so, when Riley called out to them.
Kellie and Amanda both looked over to see theirÂ youngerÂ sisterÂ wavingÂ her fist.Â She was holding something.
Â ForgetingÂ about theÂ jumping contest,Â both girls started swimming toward the shore.
Kellie reached her little sister first."Riley, what'd you find?"
Riley opened her hand to reveal aÂ pretty (although sandy)Â kid's bracelet.Â The crafty kind withÂ plastic beadsÂ that kids make and design themselves.
"Ahhh..." Said Emily catching up to the other two girls.Â "Let's go show mom and dad!"
All 3 girls raced off to where their mom and dad were sitting not far from the water's edge.
"Look what Riley found!"Â Emily called as the approached.
Their mom shielded her eyes from the sun as she looked at the bracelet in Riley's hand.
"That's pretty,Â Riley!" Mom said.
Then looking atÂ all the girls, she said "Maybe tomorrow weÂ will go the craft storeÂ and buy some beads so all of you girls can make your own."
"Hurray!" All three girls cheered at once.Â Then they ran back to play in the water some more.
**A Note from the dollÂ Kellie (a dolls' perspective): "What would you like to hear a story about?Â I would love to hear your ideas!"
