Saturday Snapshot -- College Paradise

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend of family member) have taken. Then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
I keep saying that my life is going to slow down and I'm going to have more time to devote to blogging. That's not happening so far, but maybe soon since my second son is safely delivered to college in Florida.
Here's a picture of the two of us sitting on the deck of The Hurricane restaurant on St. Petersburg Beach. It's become a tradition now for us to have lunch at The Hurricane before dropping him off for a year on his own.
Even though he towers a foot taller than me, I still feel that twang in my belly when we drive away from campus knowing I won't see him again for at least three months.

What a great pic. My sister-in-law says the worst thing about raising independent children is that they are independent!

Cute photo. Although my son is only 14 I keep thinking it won't be very many years before he is gone.

What a great photo!! I think it's awesome that he's going to college in St. Petersburg!! When I was growing up in Columbus, my family went to St. Pete Beach every year for our winter vacation. I live in Florida now and it's still my favorite place ever!!

Great photo!

What a lovely memory for you both that photo will be. It must be very hard to go from daily life together to seeing them every few months, I've done that as a daughter, but not as a mother yet.
