against my will. . .

. . .we are back from the beach.  We were lucky enough to spend a week in a fabulous house at Isle of Palms, SC with all of Patrick’s family.  Coming home from a vacation is hard enough, but coming home to a house that is still for sale and a bathroom that is still under construction is even less fun.  Here are a few pictures that are making me miss our vacation even more:

To add to my sadness, we are not going to have the luxury of living 3 1/2 hours from the beach for very much longer!  I’m a beach girl, not a mountain girl!

Looks like a great trip!! I really enjoyed our beach trip last summer to the Outerbanks with all our fam - minus Shane's family. We're ready to go again. Good luck getting that house sold and bathroom finished.

Yeah, your new camera is great! What did you end up getting? I love that picture of Patrick with the three girls. So cute! Looks like a fabulously fun vacation!
