We took a family vacation to St. Augustine, Florida!
It was Daryl’s first time to ever see the ocean, and our first big family vacation all together — ever!
We rented a very affordable condo on the beach for a week and it was all kinds of heavenly.
We celebrated Victoria’s 16th birthday, Jack’s 11th birthday and Alex’s 7th birthday.
Of course, life had to resume soon after we made the long drive back, and this week has been filled with sick kids, too much laundry, squabbles, cold Minnesota weather, a temperamental washing machine, an epically messy house and a bit of this…
It turns out I’m crazy anemic and need four weeks of IV iron. It also turns out that my veins are as impossible to stab with a pointy thing as ever.
But all in all, life is good. Give me access to a real beach once every two or three years and I remember how to breathe again.
I can’t wait to share more, but for now I have laundry to switch and messes to clean and some teenage drama to sort out….
