there was a getaway over the weekend.
full of family, the pacific ocean, and a pool shaped like a jellybean.
i think the most memorable part of the trip for my children was the jellybean pool... and the magical way it changed colors at night... that, and a late night card game with their apparently hilarious uncle.
even though it can be such a huge chore traveling away from home with four children, it is so worth the work. there is something really important about getting away from the day to day. although, i do believe my favorite part of getting away is the feeling i get when i return home again.
and now here we are...
happy to be home.
happy to sink back into our routine again.
recovering from our vacation.
i see a quiet weekend ahead of me... full of the goodness that is right here... and i can see that just a bit clearer because i got away.
