I Missed Easter

I meant to post a picture yesterday. I had it all planned out. I was going to dig up one of the images from our vacation - a beautiful palm branch - and then type 'Happy Easter' or 'He Is Risen' or some other catchy Easter phrase in the corner and post it here so that all of you could be wished a Happy Easter from Indy Photography. But do you want to know why it didn't happen? Because I was busy spending time with my family. And I'm pretty sure that's acceptable.

I am so excited to share some of our vacation pictures with you and show you what all we did while we were in Texas. So here goes...

We went to the ocean.

I made sure they watched out for these bad boys:

That was a very pretty beach you visited, and it looks like you had it all to yourselves! Very nice. Glad you made it back in one piece.
