Fun for Kids Friday: Back from Vacation Edition!

Can you believe it's Friday again? 

This past week, my family was vacationing in sunny Ft. Myers & Sanibel Island Florida. I love it there! The beaches were beautiful, the skies were clear and we had an amazing time.  I'll be writing more about our trip this weekend.  And, I'm also back on track with my weight loss, which I'll be writing about too. 

But, right now, I wanted to share a couple quick photos that my 4 year old took while we were at the beach.

I wish we didn't have to leave the beach.  It was so relaxing and we all had a blast.

Now... back to reality. ; )
