We work very hard all year. And then we take a week or two family vacation. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.Who Is Steven Joseph Photography Family Vacation in Southern CaliforniaOur 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.

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.IMG_1650.CR2-Fogarty-Family-Vacation-Summer-2014-Southern-CaliforniaIt’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.IMG_1654.CR2-Fogarty-Family-Vacation-Summer-2014-Southern-CaliforniaVenice Beach – like Fremont Street in Vegas – only prettier! And cooler!
