Home Sweet Home...

We pulled up to our little apartment last night and we all took and big sigh -- it's so good to be home. We had a great vacation filled with lots of memories but it is always nice to come back home. We spent most of our time at the beach. Madison found a new love in the ocean -- boogie boarding and Gavin and I spent most of our time walking up and down the board walk, sipping coffee and taking many breaks browsing inside the air conditioned stores.

We also made a trip to the zoo where we were once again reminded very clear and loud that Gavin does not like animals. He screamed most the the time, though he did calm down by the end and enjoyed watching the bears swim in their little pool. Madison's highlight of the trip was riding the boardwalk rides and of course eating ice cream!

Gavin did pretty well, although he is very tired and his poor little body is very weak. Hopefully we can get him back to baseline in a few days with the help of some major hydration and rest. Gavin has some exciting things happening in the next few months -- I'll post about this excitement later.

Enjoy the photos...

You guys look like you had a blast but I know how you feel, it is nice to go on vacation but there is just something about being back home. Your kiddos are so precious. What pretty kids they are.

Dear Madi and Gavin, Looks like you had a great time at the beach!! Did you collect any sea shells? Pappy and I are going to your beach in August. Hope you had a fun 4th of July. We were in the Millville parade, on the church's VBS float!! Then we had a picnic. I hope to see you soon at the reunion on the 19th. Love and kisses, Grammy Owens
