We are happiest here, together and separate, in our play and relaxation. Sitting back to watch the kids, we revel in this daydream. They splash and scream at the coldness of the Atlantic, we laugh at their antics. During a quiet moment we huddled under the parasol (part photography prop, part sunshade) and were quickly bombarded by three boys wanting turns. The perfect mix of delicate energy and tonka trucks, they spun around with parasols and I wanted to freeze the frame on this day, this childhood, this joy of summertime.
