Family Vacation Dream of the Day

Today was a great day. I spent a lot of time with my kids and added one more thing to my Mom repertoire. Hosing poop off the back patio. Man I love being Mom. I really do mean that. It's all of the little weird things that roll into the fact that there is nothing like being Mom. And as my kids get older and I start to see all of their little personality traits and quirks come out I am loving it. All of these little things that come together to make Kate who she is and Carson who he is.
I have been  thinking a lot about my family lately. My brothers and their families and my Mom. I spend a lot of time wishing we could be together. Wishing my kids really knew their cousins. Wishing they could talk about them by name. Wishing my kids could know their Aunts and Uncles for the amazing men and women that they are. I was thinking today that we should all go on a family vacation together. All 18 of us. To some place where none of has ever been. I've been looking at little beach towns. We could rent a vacation home and all stay there. Go to the beach together, ride bikes, walk into the quaint little town. Just spend time together. Just a dream I am having  today.

The town I am dreaming about is called Seaside, Florida. I was reading a blog that I love and they had just been there. Here's a house we could stay at. 5 minutes from the beach.:)
Seaside, FL. Think about it. :)

 A classic beach town

Packing our bags now.....

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
