"VACATION" - It's a beautiful thing!

We were on vacation last week.  "Vacation."  Isn't that the most perfectly sounding word in the human dictionary?  Okay, so maybe it trails just behind words like "love," "child," "happiness," "laughter"......  But, it's a pretty nice word, agree?

We did so much on this vacation, it's hard to believe it was all packed into 9 days!  It was our first solo family vacation since Tucker was 6 months old!  We've been to the beach several times over the past four years, but always with friends.  Which we LOVE doing and they have all been awesome vacations (that I actually hope to do some "throwback" posts on lol!), but we were longing for a little quality family time this time around.  (Though not before fitting in some very special family in Jacksonville, FL!)  I have been so bad about posting pics from vacations in the past, so I'm committing to doing better this time!  There's just always SO many pictures to sort through and I have a pretty hard time narrowing down just a few favs (hence my picture overload posts that are my MO on here!).

Transitioning from vacation is also very difficult for me.  I just have a hard time getting back into the swing of non-vacation things....  I'm already SO ready to go back to "vacation"!  It's taking everything in me to not visit VRBO!  And I'm pretty sure my husband thinks I'm all sorts of crazy since he's getting texts from me that read, "What do you think about the third week of June for our next vacation?"  You know, all of 5 weeks after the one we just went on.  People do that, right?  I mean, we could be those "people," right??  I'm quite positive I would be pretty good at it....  :).

Okay, I've fantasized long enough....  This isn't a real vacation post because it took me way too long to load all the pictures on my computer (I've got to do some research on a good program for organizing pictures... any suggestions???), and I got distracted and decided to give my blog a face lift (whadda think??).  Now I'm too tired (and slightly frustrated) and ready for another VACATION (have I mentioned that yet??).

I'll just leave you with a few several teasers ;).
