Friday’s Photo Finish: Family Vacation

OBX Auntie Aimee2

Family vacation has come and gone. We spent the better part of a year planning for and getting excited about our annual vacation on our family chat. Our planner extraordinaire, my sister in law, started texting about what to pack around January.

I started to pack the weekend before the trip. Because that’s how I roll.

I documented my trip with one picture a day posted to various media accounts. Yes, just one picture. Now, that doesn’t mean I didn’t take more, but I made a real effort to stay off my iPhone and enjoy time with my family. Real time. Time in the pool, on the beach without a phone in my hand, checking up on twitter, FB and my lil blog.

They would ALL be there when I returned.

We had a fabulous time on the Outer Banks, all 18 of us. And we are all still speaking. THAT is a family vacation success!

Now I am getting ready to send my Sweets, my oldest baby, to Kindergarten on Tuesday. I am looking back at these photos now, trying to somehow transport myself back to a time when I wasn’t buying back to school supplies and trying to figure out what to make for lunches.

No worries! Our vacation is already reserved for next summer- my sister in law should be sending out the what to pack email pretty soon…time to start getting excited again!

Until then…
