Home sweet home

And this

Well, and of course we had to eat...

Well, and we didn't want to get thirsty after being out in the sun all day...

There were some educational experiences as well...

Our friendly iguana here outside our condo was always fun to look at!

But mostly it was just about relaxing and enjoying God's creation. It was amazing. View from the deck of our condo:

Buck and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in June and Buck knew it would literally take removing me from the country to get me to relax. We spent a glorious, sun-filled week in Riviera Maya, Mexico at an all-inclusive resort. Our biggest decision of the day? Which of the 12 restaurants to eat at for dinner. It took a couple of days, but it worked. I got out of "mommy mode" and into "relaxation mode." It was the trip of a lifetime and we were so blessed to have our good friends Brad and Annie with us for a couple of days as well (some well-timed overlapping made for a ton of fun!). But I must leave you with this picture and illustration of God's beauty. Sunrise on the beach:

Buck's parents, Buck's sister and my mom held down the fort here at home. We are overwhelmingly grateful for their gifts of time to our family for this vacation! But the best part of being gone? Coming home to this:

Yep, rested and refreshed and ready to get back at our life together! Lovin' it!

Happy Monday, friends. Love, Laura Joy

  1. So glad you were able to get away and celebrate! Looks like you had a great trip. Thanks for sharing some pics. The kiddos look like they all survived and are very happy to have their mama and papa back!
