We went with the canvas bag and T-shirt to decorate with puffy paint pens, some of those multi colored bracelets the kids wear, a card in the shape of a purse with a fabric handle and enclosed money in it. Put it all in a wicker basket she can use for whatever she wants and "wrapped" it in a new beach towel (we found out they have a in ground pool in their yard now). She gotten lots of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces for grandma and grandpas, and rosary from the one grandpa that makes them.

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
