I tend to get discouraged because after awhile I’m just taking the same picture over again, except just one year later. But then I have to remember it’s a family vacation and maybe it’s best to put the camera away and enjoy the moment. Vacationing with young kids is not always easy, and sometimes I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. But seeing the excitement and joy in their face as they run on the beach or ride a roller coaster makes it worth it. I feel so blessed to be able to spend this time with my family and friends. And so incredibly thankful to my parents who make it happen. Here are some of my favorite moments from our trip.
