I’ve been on vacation

Did you guys miss me?  Well I went on vacation and left my laptop at home.  I knew that if I had brought it with me, I would spend half of my time on the computer instead of having fun.  That’s what vacations are for after all, having fun.  Well I had a blast and so did everyone else.

Mom decided to take all of us on a Caribbean cruise and it was a dream come true for all of us.  It wasn’t one of those short ones either.  All I can say is “Now I know where I want to go on my honeymoon if I ever get married!!”

What a great day yesterday

Jayce and I had a great day all day yesterday.  First we went to his brothers for a cookout.  His brother and sister-in-law are both really good cooks.  His brother grilled the meat and some of the veggies and his wife made potato salad and the desert.  It was all absolutely delicious.  I ate way too much too.

Well then it was off to watch the fireworks.  His brother and his family came along and there’s nothing like seeing the look in a child’s eyes as they watch fireworks.  What truly amazed me was that their father made sure to tell them what we were celebrating and why.  He’s a really great Dad.  He didn’t want the kids to think that all the 4th of July was about was cooking out and fireworks.  I thought that was just too wonderful of him.
