My sweet and handsome nephew, Ashton in the ocean.  He has come a long way as he is not a big fan of the salt water!

It is kind of hard to get photos of Will.  I think it is hard for him to be the only teen.  I took him out for coffee this morning and I let him drive a little.  It was good bonding time for us.

Will took Kate out in the ocean today and I enjoyed watching them.  He is a good big brother.

My beautiful sister and her handsome men.
We really enjoy vacationing with them.  We all have a lot of fun together.


After dinner, we went over to Kate's favorite place, The Sugar Shak...

This place has every kind of candy imaginable.  And ice cream and shaved ice.  The kids LOVE it!!

  3. Oh cherish the she'll-wear-a-ruffled-bikini-and-a-bow-in-her-hair days because they will be gone sooner than you know it! And the mention of Will driving made my heart drop. I can only imagine how you feel!

    1. Thanks Courtney, we are in Seaside FL. We come here every year now. As far as photos in bright sun.... I set my ISO as low as it will possibly go. Sometimes I put it on Aperture prioity because it is had for me to see the meter in my camera when it is so bright.
