Three-year-old Jamie Hicks, center, demands the return of a shovel from Mallory Allen, 3, during a four-family outing last week at Gulfport Beach. The children, including 3-year-old Victoria Kidder, left, were digging holes and making sand castles.
An upset Jamie takes his case to his mother, Caroline Hicks. The mothers got involved in the disagreement and told the children they needed to share. After a little more crying from each child, things got back on track.
Jamie is all smiles as Denise Glueck, left, helps him and Mallory build a sand castle.
