Man, it feels good to be back home again! The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind. We have literally been from coast to coast. This week we are finally settling back into our normal routine.
Two weeks ago, Chad and I got a little break and spent several days in San Diego for a friend’s wedding. I realllllly needed a pause in my normal every day routine and it was great to spend some time without the kids. We had a great time exploring the area and spent some quality time with our good friends who we only see a couple times a year. What a great trip!
A hike through Torrey Pines State Park was beeeeeeautiful!
We returned on Sunday, unpacked and repacked, leaving Wednesday for Florida. It was a little more chaotic since we took the kids, which is always an adventure when flying. But, we were going to celebrate Chad’s Mom, Sharlene, who passed away in December. May 5th was her birthday and we celebrated her life that day by returning her ashes to the most beautiful place that she loved. All of Chad’s family was able to be there and it was really special.
Sharlene had lived in Florida and being back there, (a place we had visited often) meant feeling a very palpable hole without her there. We miss her dearly but were so privileged to not only get to honor her wishes, but remember her when she was full of life in the place she loved most, with the people she loved most.
He now wants to drive everythinggggg.
The beautiful sandbar on a perfect day.
Our wild crew 🙂
The next couple weeks don’t slow down any with the last day of school, Memorial Day weekend and lots to do in between. I’m telling you, this summer is going to fly by! Ahhh, time slow down!
