I would have given anything to keep her little.
They outgrow us so much faster than we outgrow them.
~ Jodi Picoult
My two nephews used to come visit us each year in March, during their Spring Breaks from middle school and high school.
Here they are in 2008 at a water park - I think it might have been Aquatica:
In 2009, I splurged and took them to Discovery Cove, where they got to swim with dolphins!
See the younger one, on your left? Here's a close-up of him feeding a bird in the aviary:
And here he is again - yesterday - a week after he moved down to Florida to attend a university:
We went back to Discovery Cove and he still likes swimming with the dolphins...
...feeding the birds...
And goofing off in a wet suit jacket that was NOT made to fit him... ;)
When did that little boy turn into a young man? Where has the time gone?
