Do you know what I love best about our island? I love that, although less than 2 hours away, it’s still far enough to feel like we are really getting away. We load the car, grab some snacks, and head north. And as soon as we cross that bridge onto our island and breath in that salty sea air, we have arrived. Welcome vacation.
We had the best time with hub’s family. Walking into that condo and hearing over 20 loud voices laughing and chatting is amazing. I am so blessed to have married into such an amazing, close-knit family. It sure makes hanging out with them for a whole weekend a blast. 🙂
We celebrated Brett’s grandpa’s 80th in a big way on Saturday, first with a boat cruise and then with dinner and a party at a local bed and breakfast.
I haven’t been in this family for too long, but I’ll tell you this. It was amazing sitting around that table on Saturday night and hearing all the amazing stories his kids and grandkids told about him. He is the strong, spiritual leader of this family and his knowledge and wisdom has deeply touched every single member of his family.
Family weekends=the best. But let me tell you, they sure go by fast. Although sad to leave on Sunday, hubs and I made our usual Sonic stop on the way home for our traditional strawberry limemades and that helped make us feel a little better about leaving the family and our island behind. We’ll be back soon, island, but it sure won’t be the same without the whole family.
