We interrupt this life for a brief vacation

It occurred to me earlier this week while my husband had the week off work that we had neglected to take a vacation this summer. Life had just gotten in the way.

So we decided to take a mini-break this week and vacation close to home.

We saw the sights…

and just hung around.

We stopped running around in circles…

and watched each other have fun.

We visited an indoor ocean…

and were knocked over by waves.

We let school work slide…

and worked on balancing our lives.

Because sometimes you just need to take a moment…

to gain a new perspective.

    What a great indoor place. So glad that you finally got a vacation. I think when everyone is in school is the best time to go somewhere, even if it is right in your own neck of the woods.

    We’ve been dying to try that place, looks like loads of fun. Love the last shot – showing the caddy where he wants his shot to go?

    I love the squishy face on the other side of the netting. CUTE!

    Glad you had a little “staycation!”

    Looks like a GREAT trip!!!

    That looks like much more fun than we had on our staycation. We cleaned, cleaned and cleaned. I found the kids bedroom floors. Of course, they are buried in stuff again. I go in once a week to pick up the obviously dirty laundry and dishes. The rest of the time I close my eyes and walk pass the door fast.

    So who is that on the lilly pad thing? They look a little big for one of your kids. 🙂

    We're at an indoor water park now but the lighting is really low & I can't get a decent shot.

  20. I love the “balancing our lives” shot… nice shots, Holly. I’m glad you had a good mini-vacation.

  21. Love it. Watching other people’s vacations makes me feel relaxed.

  22. That last one is breathtaking but they are all wonderful.

  23. Such cuties! Your priorities are definitely in the right place. It is never too late to take a vacation. Is that you balancing on those two boards, pulling yourself up?!
