I'm Back... Did you miss me??

Well I just got home yesterday afternoon from my family beach vacation which was a total blast! I had so much fun playing with my new camera, soaking up the sun, spending time with my family and friends and relaxing! The highlight of my trip was watching the Space Shuttle launch from the beach on the 4th of July. It was amazing!

The weather was beautiful the entire week until Friday when it was overcast and rainy. I'm really thankful for the time we all spent together. I reflected alot on how important family and friends are and cherrished the memories we made this year and all the previous years. This is our 6th year going to New Smyrna Beach with the Diamond Family. Every year it's a blast. My children and the Diamond children are best friends. Eric and Chris and Kristina and Mallory. I look at how much they've grown in the last 6 years and how they are almost grown and soon to be on their own. Chris just turned 18, Eric will be 18 in October and Kristina and Mallory are both still 16.

Here's a picture of the entire group together, including my dear friend Vickie who came to spend a couple of days with me this year. Vickie,Chris, Mallory, Steve, DeeDee, Briana, Bennie,Eric,Adele,Kristina, Kevin and Monica
