Where are the smiles?

It's just sad that vacations end so abruptly. We're back to alarm clocks, homework, 95 degree weather, packing lunches, to do lists, assignments, solicitors, junk e-mail, bills, grocery shopping, and bedtimes. I know 6 of us who wish we were still in Hawaii. Then there's that one little boy who is just happy anywhere. Good thing he's around to make sure we all keep on smiling!

Paradise Found

We just returned from an amazing vacation in Hawaii. 22 members of my family joined together to relax, swim and enjoy 7 days without any responsibilities or schedules. No stress. No pressures. The kids were in heaven, which made life for the parents so easy. We would sleep in, hit the pools or the beach, take naps, go back to the pools or beach, eat dinner as a family, play cards until midnight, watch movies....... just pure fun!
