Family Vacation

In the last few years, we began the tradition of going on a brief family vacation … just me, my husband Chris and our girls Emma and Ana.  No others.  No family stress and strain.  Just a nice time to be together and reconnect.  A time to recharge.  It is always an awesome time.  This year was no exception.  We took a three hour trip to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey and stayed in a nice hotel right on the beach.  Being right on the beach and watching the waves roll in was such a treat.  We connected with our girls.  Ana learned to boogey board for the first time and Emma learned to body surf.  We played in the pool and in the ocean for hours basking in the sun and just enjoying us.  It was glorious.  Here are some pictures from our little trip:
