ALOHA!



Spring break was amazing!
We all went to Maui for the week.

It was one of the best vacations we have had,
and we all needed it badly.
Some of us more than others.

The kids were so good and appreciative.
The weather was beautiful.
The water was amazing.
But do you know what the best part was?

Spending each day together as a family.
I mean...we are so spread out during the week at home.
So many activities, school, work...you know how it goes.
We got to reconnect, and relax together.
I relearned how sweet & affectionate my oldest daughter is.
I relearned how hilarious and easy going my son can be.
I relearned how adventurous and brave my middle girl is.
And I relearned how friendly and willing my youngest is.

We all noticed how big and spread out our home is when we returned.
And for some reason, it made us a little sad.
We really enjoyed our time in that little condo.

But like I said, it was one of the best vacations ever.
We took lots of pictures so...
I hope you enjoy the slideshow!!!
(I might watch it more than once).

...Oh yeah, and for anyone wondering from the picts...
The tattoos are temps.
Just little 2 week souvenirs.
Hee.

Loved it! Glad it worked out so well and no huge glitches. Aren't those waves wonderful. The ocean is so nurturing and healing.

Wow! Looks like a great vacation. I just love the ones when it's just our little family. I'm a little jealous - our goal is to take our family sometime soon. Thanks for sharing all those great photos!
