Well, I’m home from vacation, and I can’t say I’m overjoyed. We had such a wonderful time visiting the Texas State Aquarium, the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History, the mall, the beach, and just spending time with family that I’m having trouble adjusting to normal life again.
Everyone’s favorite part, of course, was the beach. It was the first time my two- and one-year-olds had ever seen or stepped foot in the ocean, and they loved it. Here are a few gratuitous vacation photos for your viewing pleasure:
I was born on the gulf and grew up on the beach, and it was wonderful to see my children enjoying the same things I loved as a child. And that I still love today, for that matter. But now it’s back to everyday life on the high plains; as I said before, I’m feeling a little down after such a lovely trip. The dunes along the beach and the warm salty water have been replaced by mountains of laundry and soapy dishwater once again. But it IS nice to get back to my sewing machines. In case you’re wondering, I did get to indulge in a bit of crafting while on our trip. I’ll post more about that soon. 🙂
