a much needed rest.

Isn’t it amazing how God lines things up and we have no idea how perfect they are until after?  We just got back from vacation with my family, and it was incredible.  We had all of us there and were at our favorite beach in the world.  The blessing of rest and time away was so needed that we could feel it.  Even now, as I transition back into reality, I feel so much better able to do daily life.  This is really the first time I’ve ever felt this.  It’s been a hard summer for our little family and our bigger family on husband’s side.  Tommy is working hard and has a lot going on at work.  Between dealing with the stress of work and his family, he really needed this break.  It truly was perfect timing.

Jack, of course, had a blast.  How could he not with family around him 24/7?  I was really nervous for yesterday since it was going to be just me and him for the first time in 9 days.  Often after a weekend with Tommy and others around, he is really bummed on Mondays for it to be just the two of us, but yesterday he did ok.  It was really fun to watch Jack form deeper relationships with his Pops, Nan, Uncle Bud, and Aunt Linny.  I have so many pictures from this trip, it would be overload to do them all in one post.  I’m going to break it up into probably two posts.  I apologize in advance if it gets old; I really want to look back and remember this vacation that was so perfect.

Baby’s first bike ride.  Ohh my I was so excited to get him on the bike and with good reason– he LOVED it!

What a view!  My 2 loves.

I sat back and watched the family play for awhile.

Family shot.

Our view every day.  Um.. yes.

Cuddles with Dada.

We watched the guys play when they finally made it around to the 18th.  Tommy putting.

Our condo looked out over the 18th green and the ocean.  Quite a view.

I’ll be back tomorrow with Part 2.  Thanks for reading.
