I'm lying on a comfy couch, looking out the window at the waves of the Gulf rolling into the sandy beach as kites and seagulls hover in the blue sky above. It is naptime for the kiddos so it is quiet and peaceful, the opposite of what it was like in here just an hour ago, when the kids were chasing each other, playing hide and seek and just enjoying every moment of this vacation.
This was our first real vacation with our girls. The last few trips we have taken were sans kiddos, and it truly changes the dynamic of the vacation. Whereas before it was about relaxation and getting away, now it about new experiences and savoring every moment of sunshine and every grain of sand.
It is exhausting.
And it is wonderful.
I've been having so much fun playing that I've not even taken many pictures!
Guess that's what happens when you're busy making memories.
Up this afternoon... More beach time and wave chasing and enjoying my chickies. It doesn't get much better than that. Unless of course, you want me to mention the smores.
Yep - definitely doesn't get any better than that!
