August in Pictures

We thought we'd do something a little special for this month. In honor of back to school and our soon to be empty nesters, we're taking a look back at parents and their children. Those special moments along the way from infancy to adulthood. If you don't have children, think back to when you were the child and your parents were the ones holding on so they could eventually let go. Enjoy!
