I barely feel like we just took a vacation. I realized at lunch today that much of our vacation was spent trying to be as active as possible and entertain the toddler. The goal each day was to tire him out so he’d sleep well at night. (It worked most days.) I think that mentality carried over into our one day at home (out of 11 days) because he slept so well last night.
All that to say I’m still exhausted. I need a day on a beach with a good book and my iPod. We visited the beach a few times, but each visit meant we were exerting ourselves to keep the toddler from being carried away by the ocean waves.
He loved every second of it, though. Except when we had to leave the beach. (I think we left the beach kicking and screaming almost every time.)
I ordered 150 photos last night. I’m hoping to finish up my DC book soon, and then I’m going to work on a vacation album. Do you still print photos? Do you keep it all digital?
I’ve been on a Project Life kick recently. It’s so easy to use. I have a minor complaint about the mini albums – I wish I could take the pages out. I’m limited in that way (and only using the 4×6 landscape photos or chopping my large photos so I can do a vertical image) and I also have to make sure I have a LOT of pages! Part of my photo order last night included DC pictures to complete the mini album. Do you scrapbook?
I took over 500 photos on our vacation. I’m trying to weed out the blurry/less-than-stellar photos, but it’s been difficult. I love so many of the pictures. My husband took this one of me and Lucas looking at elephants. It’s one of my favorites:
While we were away, L learned to say “dinosaur” and he sang his abc’s all the way through. I’m still trying to get it all on video. He also learned “ice cream” and “where are you?” He’s growing up so fast.
I feel like summer just began, but it also feels like it is almost over. I’m loving this summer. Can I be on vacation every week? Or at least every other week?
