Hope you have all been doing well. We had an amazing time with family in Florida! A-maz-ing!!
I was wanting to post some photos to share in this blog post so I started going through photos on my camera and my phone. Ugh.... it made me miss everyone and want to get on a plane and head back!
I will probably drown you in photos below... so if you are here for the creative stuff, I'll share that first. After that ... beware! lol
The first thing I created after getting home was this Thank you card. Fancy Pants Designs has some great nautical themed lines. Which is what I used for this card. It seemed only fitting since I was sending it to my Florida family to thank them for such a wonderful time.
It was so hard to narrow down photos I wanted to share :(
Brace yourself for photos of my with windblown hair and no make up ( well, it was vacation right?) lol. I'm never fond of posting photos of myself, but it' just me.. who I am. And in these photos there was no forced smile. I smiled the entire time I was there!
In the photo below.... my heart was full!
These time with them were precious.
Below is my sis Sharon and her great grandson Carter.
Oh yes, lots of time in the pool too.
And time in the boat.
I was so glad Wes was able to come with me. I was nervous traveling with my foot problem. He was a great help to me.. and he loved getting to be with the family as much as I did.
Weston and his Aunt Sharon.
Wes was in the water for hours. He was loving every minute!
Proof my poor swollen foot made it
When the Florida family comes to NE, there are so many of us that want to visit with them, so there is not a lot of one on one time. Here, we got to spend time time together. I got to play with the kids, paint Arias toe nails, give the baby a bottle and rock her, lay on my sis's bed and chat with her before bed..... all the good stuff!
Oh yes... and we had dogs!! Who could ask for more! Meet Becca's dog Harley and my sis's dog Roxy. They are going for a ride in Harley's doggy stroller :)
Everything about our time there was fantastic. I we laughed a lot! The memories we made that week will be ones we will cherish forever
Family, great food, perfect weather and dogs to play with.. who could ask for more.
It's always hard to say goodbye. But.... before you know it, it's time to head home.
And guess what we came home too?
You guessed it ......
Thankful for the time we had with Sharon, Dawn, Gary, Becca, Harley, Christine, Riley, Carter, Aria, Anastasia, Kathy and David and Roxy!!!
