Article in Crossroads, Special to The News Journal

Me and my family went to Fenwick Island for a week. It was a lot of fun. I got really good at boogie boarding. Me and Finn (my 4-year-old brother) found a lot of seashells and they weren’t broken ones either. It was a really good week. We stayed at a house with my Grandmom and Grandpop. My Aunt Kristin and Uncle Ben were there for a few days, too. It was Amelia’s first time at the beach. She ate some sand. She didn’t really like the cold water but she seemed to like the beach. My Daddy Brian and my Mom helped build moats and sandcastles. My Mom has a bunch of pictures she said she will help me put one on here.

While we were at the beach my Gram and Pop Pop let me know my article was published in The News Journal.

I talked to the reporter about the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and how would it was to be the winner for Delaware. I also told him about 3B, Brae’s Brown Bags. My Mom shared the story on Facebook and she said some of the other winners from the challenge are going to hand out Brae’s Brown Bags, too. I’m very happy to hear about that. I hope they do share bags with homeless people who need them.

When I get a chance I will share pictures from the beach, too.

    Really enjoyed reading the article in the Crossroads, Braeden, and glad that you and your family had such a nice time at the beach! I forwarded your article to my family in Cleveland, Ohio, so that they can learn about 3Bs and try your recipe!
