Our Summer Vacation

I thought I would never get around to posting about our vacation.  Going through all of the pictures (why do I always take so many?) has been quite the chore!  It’s really such a curse, once you’ve learned to edit.  You just can’t imagine  posting/developing pictures “as is”.

We had a beyond wonderful time for the 10 days that we were gone.  We could have been away for a month and it wouldn’t have long enough.  I always think, “Just one more day.”  We had such a great time with our family, celebrating milestones and just, well, relaxing.

I love the ocean.  There is just something so soothing about it.  It’s like going home.  It really is good for the soul.  I could have taken a hundred pictures of the water.  I’m sure I came pretty close!

This has definitely been a summer full of fearlessness for Mila.  She even taught herself how to swim. She can’t be in the water alone, but she is getting there!

There is always some kind of dancing going down if you hang around us for long.  Some college kids pulled up next to us and started blaring their music.  Our kids entertained us all for quite some time.  It was great!

Everyone gets into playing in the sand.

And playing in the waves.

Oh, and lots of relaxing!!!

Congrats, Mrs. Ricky!

When we were planned our vacation last year, it was to be timed so that my sister could get married on the beach.  Everything went off without a hitch.  Beautiful ceremony and a beautiful bride.  I’m so proud to have a new brother!

This was such a happy, happy day.  We were so honored to be a part of it.  We love you Ricky and Carrie!
