With their new cameras


a brother and sister


take pictures of their vacation.

But when they look at their photographs they see: 1. The back of Dad's head2. Feet3. A container of noodles

That's it?

Does 1 + 2 + 3 = summer vacation?

What about how it felt to swim in the lake? What about the stories their cousins told and the taste of a just-invented strawberry and whipped cream dessert?

For those memories the memories of summer and the memories of family that mean the most they need to look someplace else. Someplace deep inside. Someplace permanent.
