The first day of school marked the end of summer fun but we had the chance for one more weekend getaway so we loaded up the kids and our boat and hit the road. I grew up just about 50 miles from the coast and we went to the beach a lot. I really love to take the kids at least once every summer and this year we made it twice.
I wish I had taken a picture of the cute little house we were staying in on the river. Family friends own it and it is just the perfect little size for us but the mosquitos were like something I had never seen so we were truly in a full out sprint from the car to the house every time we arrived.
Keith is always finding things I would never have even known to look for!
And I wish this picture was better but on the right you can just make out this crazy spiky looking fish we found. Carly was freaking out because she did not think the two fish liked each other.
While this was happening on the other!
And y'all....it just kept getting better and better. God is such an amazing artist!
Dillon caught our only keeper of the day but she was a beautiful red!
Holly. She always, always finds this most meaningful gifts and I love a good cuff to remind me what's important. Friday was the anniversary of my dad's death and she knew it was the perfect day to remind me. It is so easy when we are away to "Be Here Now" but when I'm back in the daily grind I often do not make the time to be present with my family. Work in progress!
Have a great Monday friends!
Linking up with these ladies here.
