We Work Real Hard All Year making beautiful Las Vegas Wedding Photography, then we take a southern California Family Vacation
We work very hard all year. And then we take a week or two family vacation. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.Our youngest one is still in that pure childhood state where the veil separating fantasy from reality is thin and porous. He’s just as cute asking grownup questions about “how do people breathe in the desert if there are no trees?” as when he is unselfconsciously slaying zombies on the beach. He’s always slaying some sort of bad guys. I finally caught his adorable madness in this animated gif. I’m gonna miss it deeply when he crosses the boundary into older-hood.
Vroom. Did I say this campground is a boy paradise? Body surfing. Sand castles. Bike riding. Campfires. Marshmallows. Skate boarding. It is a boy Paradise.Best buds forever – it’s always good to see our favorite Utah – California transplant – hi AMY!Still not too cool to hug his mutha Flirting with older women. Our oldest son – 14 years old – being swung around by two admiring 15 year old California 10th graders. They bought him a soda. Mason buried in the sand, being sand-sculpted by his incredibly talented Aunt Yenelli.Best buds JJ and AJBest buds J and LBoys taking a break from ridiculous overloads of fun The beach is always serving up surprises.
My baby.Our very good friends the McLaughlins, standing in front of their sleek and stylish Airstream. Their kids and our kids connect like magnets the moment we reach the beach and they don’t let go until we come back home to Vegas. Where they again connect like magnets.It’s nice when I get to be on the other side of the camera, especially just after I’ve taken my shirt off. This is Gold’s Gym on Venice Beach, where me and Arnold spend most of our free time.Venice Beach – like Fremont Street in Vegas – only prettier! And cooler!
Boy paradise.Boy paradise.Boy paradise. Girl paradise, too. Forever young – our good friend John.
