Treasure Island

We spent all of last week at Tybee Island, GA, with our neighbors across the street who also have three kids. It was a very, very fun trip. With the exception of a long weekend last summer, Tim and I hadn't really been to the beach since we were married almost 11 years ago. On top of that, we hadn't ever taken a vacation with another family before, so when we set out a week ago Saturday it was really a leap of faith.

Fortunately everyone got along great. The kids played beautifully together and having four adults there full-time made it easier on everyone. We all felt like we had really been on vacation, which, as most parents know, is a rarity when you travel with small children and no nannies or babysitters.

In the week we were there we had gorgeous weather, so we did all the typical beachy stuff:
We were all sad when it was time to go home. But our beach vacation had done its job: we were sandy, happy, relaxed, and refocused on what we treasure most.

This sounds like a fabulous trip - imagine a vacation that actually felt like a vacation! - as did the Chattanooga trip....

I'm really enjoying the photographs, and I am so glad that you've been enjoying your travels!
