Drabble Challenge #11

Prompt: happy family vacation

"Are we there yet, Mama?!" Tippy squealed in anticipation.

"We're getting closer," she said as she playfully nudged him on his left shoulder.

"I want to see the starfish," Tippy babbled, "and the dolphins and the waves and the surfboards and the people!"

"It's a very bright and sunny day," she told Tippy. "You'll be able to see all that and more."

"Like what, Momma?"

"Oh, like tugboats and sailboats and birds and kites."

"Yeah!" Tippy shrieked. "This is going to be so much fun," he said as he rolled in the water and shook his flippers toward the sky.
