MUCH NEEDED FAMILY TIME

As many of you know, Mark and I work different schedules so we don't need full time childcare. It works out well for the little dudes but not always the best thing for us as a family. Sometimes we both feel like single parents. With that said, we decided to take a much needed family vacation. Planning it was difficult as i wanted to fly and stay at a resort and Mark wanted to drive and stay at a motel 6 (LOL). We were going to Fort Myers Beach Florida where i lived for 2 years (1997-1999). It is a place near and dear to our hearts.

Anyway, we negotiated and decided to drive but stay at
the pink shell resort. I think both our ideas turned out for the best. We had 20 hours each way of family time. The boys did fantastic in the car. Mark and I got to talk and just be together.
The resort was fantastic and even met Mark's expectations which is not always easy to do.

We stopped in Savannah Georgia for a day. I always wanted to visit Savannah after reading 'midnight in the garden of good and evil'. Great book!!! neat city!!!

Here are some pics of our trip. I'll post some stories about it in the next week so check back....here is a preview of what is to come.... 'hit the button', 'catching up with friends', 'pickles', 'chasing the birds' 'Gerardo' and 'boating with bobby'.

All i can say is this vacation totally exceeded my expectations. We will definitely do family trips more often!!!

I am so glad you had such a wonderful family vacation. The photos are so great....but the one of the boys on the beach I REALLY love.

I still can't get over how small your peanuts were at birth. I'll never forget when you delivered them.

I'm glad you had a great trip! We were supposed to stay at that resort for our honeymoon four years ago! (we went to Orlando instead after 4 hurricanes hit florida that year)

LOVE the pic of the boys on the beach. Awesome!

I am so happy you all had such a great time. Vacations are so needed to get back in touch with your family sometimes. It sounds like this was just the ticket.

Your boys are SO adorable. Looking forward to more pics & stories :)
