Each year, Dan's parents are gracious let us spend a week at their condo during the summer.
Even more, they share their toys with us: boat, jeep, kayaks, etc. :)
We are so thankful,
and this week has come to be a special tradition for our family.
We all look forward to it so much and enjoy every minute in paradise!
We ditched the big camera for the week and just took pictures on our camera phones. They are in no particular order, and of no particular quality - but we love the sweet memories they represent!
There are some favorite things that we do each and every year:
jump off the pilings at the pass
take the boat to "the little island"
take naps, often.
pick out our favorite "sugar cereal" to enjoy with morning cartoons
play with cousins
eat snoballs nearly every day
eat delicious seafood
swim in the pool multiple times a day
Here my sweet family is jumping off the pilings.
Left, Lana. Middle, Dan. Right, Tucker - not jumping. Ha!
Look at that hermit crab house!
They were abundant this year, and fun to watch.
Lana loved the boat so much, especially when we were running,
and particularly if we had to cross over another boat's wake.
She is an adventurer in every sense of the word -
I can't wait to see what the Lord will do with her!
This. Oh, how they love each other.
Melt a mommy's heart.
Dan snuck out early several mornings to fish with his dad.
He returned one morning to find this in the keybox:
Nana took Lana & I for pedicures one afternoon while Tucker rested
& Dan caught up on a bit of work:
What a wonderful week!
