My mischievous, dimpled water dog

From now on we are taking a towel wherever we go.

Ready for summer

Our shared sun protection for the season.

Marvelous Maeve

The dingo would get halfway done with this kid and be all, dude, I’m full.

When they weren’t playing hide and seek, throwing frisbees, or constructing elaborate forts out of quilts.

In those first few moments in the morning as they are rubbing the sleep from their eyes.
