A very brief description of our first family vacation.....

It was absolutely incredible, in so many ways! I wish I had time to give all the details, but I have a lot of boxes calling my name and a few walls that are calling for some paint. We will be moving within the week and we have two weeks worth of work to do. So for now, I will just share 8 out of the 226 pictures we took.

The amazing cottage we stayed at, full loaded with all a
family could need. These guys didn't miss anything.

The amazing cottage at sunset.

Just a peek in to the living room and kitchen.

Wonderful sunsets on the beach across from our cabin.

God showing off in his incredible skies.

A storm on the move and...............a tree.

My culinary skills.
The kids loved it and that's all that matters and
yes, that is two pieces of bacon hair and an egg gotee.

The amazing cabin, beach, water and fabulous sunsets were just a FEW things we were blessed with in our 10 days of vacationing. Family week was packed with activities, events and making new friends with other GLBT families. I see God's hand and God's love moving in such a mighty way in the glbt community. I plan to share more later, but for now, packing and painting await me!

Be blessed!

I'm so glad that you had a chance to get away to such a beautiful place.
