An Escape From the Rain

Hello! The kids and I have just returned home from a fabulous week away in Florida! We were visiting my family, and it was wonderful. We escaped the Portland monsoon (at least temporarily) and enjoyed beach time, pool time, and even a trip to Legoland.
The kids had lots of cousin time, and there was rarely a minute to spare. I think we are all a bit exhausted, but also filled with happiness and gratitude for time spent with family. (I didn’t bring my camera, so my pictures are all from my i-phone, and are less than spectacular, but sometimes the camera just seems like one thing too many.....)
And now we are home, and I am looking forward to a couple of weeks of down time, snuggled home with the kids, doing less. And hoping that this rain stops. Or just slows down a bit. We may float away soon......

Pin It Now!


  1. Looks like a great time was had by all. Finn looks so grown up :) Enjoy your weekend.

  3. How the kids are growing fast, they're getting so big!!!
    Happy to hear you had a good trip and got to enjoy some sunshine in the middle of our West Coast grey winter!
