Monkey See.....

Uploaded: July 17, 2008


I have always wanted a profile silhouette shot of my husband with one of the boys just to see if you could see any similarities. Instead I got this shot of my youngest son Noah and my husband Joe while we were on vacation in Nags Head. We were at a State Park called Jockey's Ridge, which are the highest sand dunes on the East Coast. We usually go there when we visit, but this time we changed it up and went during sunset!...LOVED it!
Joe is pointing to the kites that are flying around. Noah is at that cool age where he mimics everything he sees. Sometimes it gets messy, but this is a highlight of that wonderful stage!
