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 head
2. Feet
3. 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.
