I love how while we were on vacation we just spent almost every waking moment with each other and we didn't fight or get sick of each other! It's some kind of miracle that happens for that one week a year. If we tried to do this while at home we'd probably kill each other. But vacation is magical. Is there a way to capture that vacation magic at home? If so, please let me know how!
I feel like I have a million pictures to share, so sorry for the picture overload, but I just can't choose which ones I like best. I love them all! They represent so many sweet little moments that I want to remember.
Guess I'll just start with our new family portrait. Thanks to my mom for patiently trying to take photos of the four of us on two different occasions.
A photo of the inside of our beautiful condo! We will definitely be booking it again for next year. Wow, the attention to detail was amazing. I loved waking up in this room for a week. Perfectly done.
A few more photos of the inside of our condo. The owners did such a great job decorating it. It's exactly how I would do it if I had my own condo...but now I can just rent their's!
Okay, back outside to the beach. This picture cracks me up! How did my husband know he was making that face?! Guess it's because that's what my son does when he is freaking out about something. I'm guessing it was the water touching his toes. He wasn't a huge fan of the water this year. He doesn't like his toes to be wet or sandy, go figure. Tough luck when you're at the beach. He was also afraid to walk over the line of sea shells that collect from the tide so we had to carry him or hold his hand a lot. But he was way better than last year.
She loved being chased on the beach by her dad. It was so fun to watch.
Digging a hole, she was pretty into that this year. She wasn't so good with the sand castles and refused to let me help her build one. Miss independent, I have no idea where she gets that. ; )
A couple days later she got a little more ambitious.
She was very proud of that giant hole.
My son had fun making tracks in the sand with his monster truck. Love this pic of my boys hanging out together.
I made him a sand castle with a bridge and he drove his matchbox cars all around it. He doesn't look too thrilled about it here though. Must've had sand on his hands. Hope he gets over his sand aversion for next year!
Some pics from when we were trying to get our family photo at sunset. I love his hair and his sandy toes in this pic. And his sweet smile. I love that kid.
He so stinkin cute I can't stand it! Are you sick of me admiring the cuteness of my kids yet? Sorry, I can't help myself. If you are mother, then I know you understand.
Every once in a while I get a picture of my daughter where she looks mature beyond her 6 years. This is one of them. Makes me wonder what she'll be like when she grows up. Hopefully she can still pull off the grace and self assuredness I see in this photo.
I already feel more relaxed just looking through all of our photos deciding which ones to pick. What an amazing week we had. Just wish we could do it more than once a year. I have a few more pics that I want to share, but I think I'll do a separate post about them since this is already ridiculously long. Check back soon!
