Vacation Rewind

After a fantastic week at the beach, it’s hard to wade through the laundry, grocery shopping, preschool swim lessons and junk mail. To make life twice as exciting, our older boys started their new school year today. So I’m taking a few minutes and reliving the highlights of our family vacation. There were 103 of us gathered together this year. We sang, feasted, body surfed, celebrated and caught up on one another’s lives. It was spectacular.

DCIM100SPORTI’m sure some folks think we’re crazy going to the beach the week of the Fourth, but we don’t know any different. In fact, we’ve gone back later in the summer and it just isn’t the same.

I’m linking up with Jennifer Peterson for her No Words Needed post. Looks like I had a few words to share, after all. Click over here for more details and share your photos, too.
