Braden, Age 6, July 2013
Here's to the summer vacations of his youth: the late night giggling fits in a hotel room with a big bed all to himself, that near hysterical feeling of being out of the car after 8 hours of riding, the silly jokes and fart noises we make before we turn out the lights, the anticipation of the beach that's so close now, and all the wonderful things we see and do together when schedules don't matter and there's time for nothing but play and laughter.
Here's to capturing those memories in photos and words, and lining the walls of my heart with them.
