What a Week...
Our vacation was wonderful, not so much sleep but a very nice time. The weather was not as warm as I would have liked but we still made it to the beach everyday except Thursday. That was a totally wash out, literally. It was a good think that I was on vacation if not I would have been stuck at home all week with sick Emma, poor baby. She did get better by the end out the week and played in the sand with the other kids that arrived.
Our friend started arriving on Wed and all were down by Friday. Everyone except Jody and Tim’s family had there own place, they stayed with us. This has sort of become a tradition, Dewy Beach Triathlon on Sat. morning( Way to go Angie (Chris' sister) on your 2 place age group finish!!) and Love Seed Mama Jump on Sat night. What a blast!!!
Friday Sat and Sunday was the best beach days, thanks god Emma was better by then, so we all really had a very good time. She was no longer stuck to my lap since there were about 8 other kids for her to play with and four of them were staying with us.
The kids were all such helpers with the baby and Emma I think I may have truly lost it without them…. I am happy to report that Tatum loved the beach and the sun she was happiest out on the sand with an ocean breeze. I clearly have two future beach bums in my house, just like their Mom and Dad.
Although we had fun visiting with family and seeing friends in a different environment it was nice to get home and sleep in my own bed in my own room without kids. I love my kids so much more when they are in their own beds:) It was so tough to get up this morning.
By the way the family photo turned out great!!
