I could do without all that sand.

  71. 218
    Melissa says:

    Yeah man, part in parcel of playing at the beach, especially if there's no shower up at the end of the sand beginning of the road to wash yourself up with.
    I think a little vacumme in the car though every now and then is worth being able to go to the beach.
    It's the biggest thing or one of, that I miss about NZ.

    Love your beach pics. Fun times for sure!

  94. 270

    We saw this on the national news tonhgit. It’s called a “haboob” or something like that, right? My parents were glued to the TV watching it, because Mesa has become their second home (they spend 6 months of the year there). They haven’t experienced one of these storms first-hand, but I bet my dad would be outside watching it. He’s 75. LOL!

  95. 271

    – Great shoot!! You can tell she has it goin’ on with the out-fit choices and boy can you tell those kids know how to pose!!! Great peeicrptsves. GREAT captures and lights. You are the bomb, Kelly!08/21/2011 8:37 pm
