Along the route

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. The colors of equality.

My sad, dimpled water dog

Would you look at that face. Not even you could deny her every wish.

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.

Finally some downtime

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

Sarong song

When the obligatory souvenir hits the right note.

Souvenirs

The dangers of introducing this kid to any type of animal. No one get her a stuffed opossum.

Sans lait

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

Modern childhood

Their five-year age difference is one of the most entertaining aspects of my life.
