Ah, maybe you are weary of my videos? I know my family occasionally tires of my camera obsession. But when I made this, I promised not to pose or direct anyone And if you ask me, the result is absolutely beautiful. Our entire vacation in 3 minutes:

    I tried to count all of the smiles but gave up after I got to about a billion. Beautiful. xo

    Three big kids are crowded around me. Four smiles spread across our faces. We liked it. We liked it very much.
