Life is Good!

Sometimes you have to put the family back into the family business-which is exactly what I just returned from doing. A couple of weeks on the coast of Maine was the perfect way to recharge my batteries and reconnect with my kids. Throw in perfect weather, plenty of ice cream and I swear I became the poster child for “Life is Good!” Since a picture is worth a thousand words I thought I'd share a few. Thank you guest bloggers Bill and Erin and to everyone who held the fort down in my absence. I love you all!

Your Dad looks great in his natural habitat...okay, everybody looks good, but it's good to see that big ol' Dave smile.

I guess that's what retirement can do for you! BTW, Dad sends his best.

Even though it's been less than 2 weeks it already seems like a lifetime since I took these photos. Too bad there isn't some magic potion that you can take to hang on to that relaxed "on vacation" feeling. I guess the next best thing must be WINE!
