This is one of the reasons I haven't posted in a little while. It's called summer and it's best taken with family, sand, water and lots of sun. I recently took my in-laws up on the offer to crash the annual family Outer Banks vacation with the boys for a couple of days. This is Lincoln, above, in deep conversation with his cousin, Alyssa, while they look out at the remains of a 19th-century shipwreck off the beach. Cool. And here the cousins, including Alyssa's little brother Eric, are doing some serious sandcastle creation as part of the annual family competition.
Apparently, the seagulls hadn't eaten dinner yet because they hovered right over us while Lincoln ate his granola bar.
