The first round of pictures. These highlight the happy beach bum, otherwise known as Max. He fell in love with the ocean but couldn't figure out why the waves left and came back. He did great on the plane (making googley eyes with the flight attendants) and lived in puka shells and bare feet for a week. Plus he had grandpa and grandma and pretty aunties to spoil him all week. He did come home with an ear infection, but maybe that's because he never wanted out of the water. Oh well, a small price to pay for paradise.
