Black and White Wednesday - "Beach Bound"

August 11, 2010

Nick Peeling Paint BLOG
Nick arrived home on Saturday and we could not have been more excited to see him walk through the door.

One Big Hug BLOG
He said that he didn't miss his sister, but I think his actions speak louder than his words. He looks pretty happy to see her..... Don't you think?

Contemplative BLOG
Sarah was smiling from ear to ear all weekend. Although she enjoyed being the only child the last two weeks, she was a little lost without her brother by her side. Now he is right back where he belongs.


Sorry I have not made the rounds in almost two weeks...... I will be back to checking in on everyone when we come back from vacation. We are finally beach bound..... we are heading to Cape Cod today and are looking forward to some serious R&R!

If there is any important news, I will let you all know ASAP. The computer is coming along just in case a certain something arrives:)

Great shots. Nick's face is maturing before my eyes. What a stunner he is.
I can see Miss Sarah has her prince back. They'll be back bickering in no time...just the way brothers and sisters are supposed to.

Oh what a sweet shot your b/w image is. Her little smile while holding his hand, nice bit of composition. :) I've always thought siblings miss each other more than they think when they are separated.

I know you missed Nick so much! I mean, how could you not...just look at those dreamy eyes and sweet smile. Such a cutie, he is. Looks like little sissy missed him, too! Enjoy your time at the Cape and we'll catch up next week. Hope we are celebrating over the phone with a cosmo and some news about a certain little girl from the east!
