Cute shots Dave!
Is that Mama's favorite I wonder that gets to sit on her back or maybe he hasn't learned to swim and she told him to hop up there and watch the others to see how it's done. :)

Great photos. The little ones are so cute and the reflections are beautiful.

I wonder why that "special one" gets a ride and the others have to swim?

Nice pictures.

Really nice photoes, elegant with the reflections in the water and no disturbing elements around, and very funny with the little one that is riding on the back of the parent while all the other brothers and sisters have to swim behind them!
