I Can Hear Your Sweet Voice Calling....

I can't remember when we last had a vacation.......

No, seriously - without digging through pictures, I cannot recall the last vacation our family was able to take together.  We had a destination wedding a few years back, but it has been a while since we've taken a vacation.  Due to the economic lay-offs of a couple of years ago, including my husband, vacations kind of fell off the horizon.  But not this year!!!

Edward worked a long tax season this spring which allowed us to have some extra funds for spoiling the kids.  This makes me so happy!  Would you believe their vacation of choice was Galveston, TX, to spend some time at the beach?  You mean no long lines to ride rides, no walking your legs off, no dying of heat stroke.......YES! YES! and More YES!!!

Our eldest son even took the initiative to look up hotels and choose the place he thought we should stay.  He chose the San Luis Resort located right on the beach, and it turned out to be an amazing place to reside.  I can't believe how much we enjoyed sitting on the balcony to our room and just enjoying the ocean breezes.

Of course, we also immensely enjoyed the beach.

The waves were crazy fun to play in, and the water and air temps were perfect.  These are my men diving into the waves.

When the salt, sand, and wind were too much, we still had this lovely pool to relax in.

The sunset was beyond beautiful.

Such a precious time with Edward and our sons.  You know, when you wait for something for a long while - it seems especially delicious when the time for indulgence finally arrives.

Thank you, God, for the wonderful blessing of this vacation!

And Thank you for stopping by!  It's so nice to see you again.
