As promised…PICTURES!

Because I know you just love looking at someone else’s vacation pictures! Ha! 

I’m sorry but I can’t help but share a handful. We had so much fun, and it was fabulous to get away and just soak in family time. No Internet, no cooking or cleaning, just a relaxing few days of treasured memories with our sons and family. 

Carnival Fantasy, our floating hotel for a few days


Hanging out in the lounge
My handsome guys…

We adopted our son’s friend (pictured on left) for the week. 
I don’t think he minded too much…
Usually we head to the mountains to chill, but here we are hanging out at the beach. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Sun warming our backs, a sweet breeze kissing our cheeks, and sand sliding through our fingers. Loved it!

Can anybody say windy? Sheesh, talk about big hair.
My beautiful family
This last one cracks me up. Little Man usually hams it up for the camera with a huge smile, but he hardly cracked his lips for any of the formal pictures. He’s still a cutie!

See what I mean? Such treasured moments I will cherish forever!! 
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our lives and that you are able to enjoy special times like this with your loved ones!

What about you? How do you get together with your loved ones when they are spread across the country? What was one of your most memorable vacations?

  1. Love the pics, Dora! It looks like you had a great time. One of my favorite memories was created two summers ago. The family surprised my dad for his 80th birthday. We flew back to Wisconsin (from Seattle) as well as my daughter, her husband, and my stepdaughter and her husband. My other daughter and her husband came from New York. My nieces and nephew came from Minnesota, Illinois, and Michigan. My aunt flew up from Florida. Other relatives also showed up. We hid the cars at another location. When he walked into my brother's house and saw everyone there, he cried. We had a wonderful weekend just hanging out as “family.”

  2. Oh, Dawn, I can only imagine your father's joy at having the entire family in one place. What a wonderful gift to him! And next time, you'll have your little guy there. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace and sharing.
