So it is Tuesday night and the week is already flying by. We are just settling back in after a fun and relaxing family trip to Pawley's. It was four years ago this weekend when after six months of dating Bert popped the question and I said yes. Since then it has been a whirlwind of home repairs, job changes, pregnancy and ice machines---leaving us with very little time for vacation. Which would explain why in four years, this was my first official weeklong Dasher family vacation at Pawley's. Not only was it my first vacay, it was Loulie's and her first beach trip!!!

What can I say?--we had a ball! Weesie and Papa so graciously surrendered the "master" bedroom to Loulie which allowed us every morning to open the blinds to sunshine and the ocean. Ahhh Heaven! Loulie quickly took note of her place in the scenario and like a true drama queen, she learned to work the crowd. I'm not sure she had a moment where at least three people were not entertaining her. Between bike rides and walks and playing on the beach, she had a ball. The fun was not all left to the youth either. With helping hands, Bert and I were able to relax, go on a date and spend some much needed time with Bridget Bojangles. All four of us were spoiled and Weesie is to blame. I'm so thankful for time with family, a chance for Bert to relax during his busiest time of year and the greatest blessing of my sweet girls. Watching the pure joy of Bridget swimming in the waves and of Loulie figuring out the sand and the sea for the first time are priceless images that could only be enjoyed in the slow pace that coastal life forces upon you. It was a great week of rest that will help get us through the rest of a busy summer.
I close with some images from the week....
