Last night Keith and I arrived back home from a long weekend in Florida with my sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces.  I think I may need a few days to recover -- not because it was stressful or exhausting, but exactly the opposite.  It was so relaxing that it may just take me a while to get back into the swing of things.  I'm still in vacation mode.

Keith and I normally do one big trip a year (Itlay, Scotland & Ireland, and China so far).....but since we know we'll have two trips to Ethiopia either this year or next, (hopefully this year!) we've been saving both vacation days and money for those trips.  This mini-vacation was perfect for us.  Thanks to my sweet aunt and uncle, we were able to stay in a condo on the beach for free, and since we were only gone Friday night to Monday evening, Keith only used one vacation day. 

We had a blast with our sweet nieces.  I'm not normally much of a beach person (can you tell by the blinding white skin?), but it was so much fun with the girls.

Macy Jane LOVES the water.  Could you tell?
We love these sweet girls.

Thanks, Brooke and Allen, for inviting us.  And thanks, Aunt Mel and Uncle Vic, for letting us use your condo.  We had a great time!

P.S. We did manage to pick up some souvenirs that aren't airbrushed!  Check it out:
