We're back...

...from our very first family vacation!

We have snuck away before, when life becomes overwhelming. It's a survival thing, but this time, this time it was planned in advanced. A fulfillment to a dream I've had since I found out I was expecting my oldest son. Two dreams actually. One to fill our big ole tent with our family and two to take my boys to Story Land.

Sweet bliss. To see the wonder and awe through two young pairs of eyes. Sweet bliss.
