I am planning on offering some fun and funky skirts for all of the grown-up girls out there!

after a fun night with the family we headed out on our first cruise on our boat! Whoo Hooo! We woke to a beautiful breeze.....

or NOT....but we decided to head out anyways....the kids slept until we were about an hour out of the harbor...

even though there was no wind we still had a lot of fun....

watching the kids jumping off the stern was a bit nerve wracking for me and an adrenaline rush for them!

the wind really filled in later in the week but luckily we were already back from our trip....

Fabulous photos, just fabulous. You've got to write and tell me about your lens/equipment. I know it's your skill that makes these so great, but they're also so crisp. Love 'em.

Great photos; inspirational. I'm a new fabric designer with Michael Miller (you can see a few peeks on my blog). I must learn better photo skills very soon!
