Sibling Beach Fun & Fustration!

My family and I went to the Jersey shore for a short 2 day get-a-way. We went for a walk on the beach and took some quick pictures of our kids having fun. This one was taken at the perfect timing and was not staged. This picture depicts the love, fun and frustration my children or siblings in general have for one another. Our son teases our daughter as most older siblings do to their younger siblings. Our daughter’s frustration is seen as she jumps and does a karate motion towards her brother, while our son jumps into a “cool pose” showing his overall demeanor towards his sister. It addition this photo shows the fun they have together. It truly depicts many characteristics of their relationship at this stage of life as I know many siblings around the world could relate!
