Photohunters: Scoop and children

Children love to scoop up water and sand.
PHphothdDSCN1198
For this photohunt I went back to my print photo boxes of 1980 and early 1990 shots.

The child in all of the shots is my daughter who was born in 1985 and is now 27 so obviously she's grown up a bit since these were taken.

The first shot is of my daughter and my father and that was the last beach trip when both of my parents were alive since my mom died in 1990. My father lived until 1998 so we had a number of other beach trips with him after that shot was taken.

The second shot is my daughter older than she is in most of these shots, but still a child. The third shot is of Bill and our daughter and the distant figures in the ocean are me and my sister. The shot above is my daughter on the left, one of my sisters in the middle and me on the right. Below is my daughter scooping water in the bath with a funnel and watching it fall out. Tip for new parents, funnels are great bath scoop toys because the water falls out in the tub rather than get thrown across the room.
