I’m going through the few photos I managed to take during our trip to Florida and I’m thinking it is so crazy how fast life can change. We were having fun at the beach one day and then less than 48 hours later, we got the news that Dave’s uncle wasn’t doing well and we were scrambling to get Dave on the first possible flight to Pennsylvania. We quickly went from vacation mode to the harsh reality that Dave lost his uncle, mentor and friend.
This week is a hard one for our family, but I still wanted to share some of these photos from our trip to the beach because it was Andi’s first time seeing the ocean.
She absolutely loved running around and chasing all the birds. She wasn’t wild about the water, but she enjoyed eating the sand.
Atlas brought his golf clubs since golfing is his current favorite pastime.
Atlas loved riding the waves until he fell off his board. Then he was over it and back to hitting golf balls off the sand. (They were rubber golf balls so they wouldn’t hurt if they accidentally hit someone.)
Hands down, Atlas’ favorite part of our trip has been hanging with his cousin, Pierce.
Pierce is older than Atlas, but he plays so well with him and I’m pretty sure he is Atlas’ favorite person. There is nothing better than listening to Atlas play and giggle with his cousins. I just love how close they are and how much fun they have together!
I’m so thankful for the time we had in Florida and the friends and family we got to see, even if it was too short. This week I’m especially appreciative of any memories I get to make with those I love and hold dear to my heart.
