Genuine happiness

Of all the luck to have for our 3 days in Florida... It rained for 2 of those! It's a good thing we went to the beach the very first day, because that was the last chance we would have. And even then, we had to leave because the rain started to fall before we were wanting to be done (hence very poor quality of photos because it was so dark outside). Atleast it was warm. Very warm, and windy. Very windy. But even that small amount of time was worth it. Nutmeg would never get near the water. We've been to Florida a couple of times this summer, and she would not get near the waves. Wanted NOTHING to do with them, even if we tried to hold her. Somehow though, through the magic of granparents... Nutmeg was in the water. Her and Pa ran in and out of the waves. Something we've tried many times to do with her, but it took someone else for her to be brave enough.

I loved watching her out there. I loved that it was my dad, the one who taught me these same games, to be the one out there teaching her. It was perfect.

Thank you Pa.

I just love your pics...I finally got photoshop elements but I'm clueless as to how to use it! I need to take a class or something.
