Sunshine Days.

Surrounded by family, this week, and some of the cutest little people you could imagine. So no wonder my days are full of sunshine. 


The pool is proving to be a popular cooling resource. 



And a place for these little fishies to learn to swim.

Fourteen Years.

How can this be? Seems like only yesterday we were coaxing her to speak her first words, which were very long in coming. Now she talks non-stop. She is a family-first girl. Passionate about cooking, and more passionate about eating. (Comes by that honestly, I guess.) Her wit keeps us laughing most of the time. So tremendously thankful for her. Love you, Miss A.

Early BP.

She isn't officially a teenager until next month... but some school friends came to cheer her on to this next milestone, regardless. We break all kinds of rules around here. Even birthday ones.


And the pool managed to keep these hot shots cool for the day.

Hello Summer.

And... we're done. As of yesterday, no more bagged lunches for 10 weeks. TEN weeks.

Just a night or two prior to being done, one of the many things we did was celebrate this group of teenagers graduating to High School.


I love these girls. Friends since Kindergarten. Different in so many ways, but they all share the same crazy sense of humour. No idea what is causing the laughter here, but it sure must've been funny!


Those few years flew right by, I tell you. Middle School is now a closed chapter in their books. Sniff, sniff. And by the looks of it, the High School staff better brace themselves for these comics coming their way, September 2015.

Nicaragua - Grand Finale.

Today is Thursday and we've just returned from the resort. Still mighty hot outside, registering 35 degrees, maybe just a little too balmy for my liking. It's been a dreamy two weeks in beautiful Nicaragua, though. Relaxing, lazy, sunny... and plenty of free time to sit and enjoy the surroundings and each other. We will certainly miss this place, and our family here, who treated us like royalty.



But home is calling, and although we're not looking forward to a day of traveling tomorrow, we are looking forward to being home again, safe and sound.

Adios, mis amigos.

Nicaragua - Birthday Boy.

Special day today for my man. Love him so much, and the crazy guy that he is, even at 60!


Celebrating with PiƱa Coladas. 




Cooling off in the pool. 


Seriously, what other guy do you know turns 60 years old, and shows as much thrilldom as this?!

Nicaragua - Gran Pacifica.

Gran Pacifica was the resort of choice to spend the last few days of our trip. Arrived here this morning, and just can't get enough of the beauty of this place.

Our room walk-out. 


So excited to be here!


Room with a view. 


Fun on the beach. 


Pausing for a moment in the crashing waves. 


Love this girl and all the fun she is. 


Watching the sunset, over the infinity pool. 


So in awe.
