Slowly, but surely...

I feel like the title of this post describes my life for the past several days. We recently returned from a month-long trip to the islands of Aruba and Bonaire and I'm playing catch-up. I've never been gone that long from home before and I'm slowly, but surely, getting settled back in at home. We had a fantastic trip, with wonderful weather and the kids were super travelers. Since I haven't had a chance to do any stamping yet, I thought I would share a few pictures from our trip.

This first picture is a sunset on the island of Bonaire. I saw so many beautiful sunsets on our trip, yet I never tired of them. Each and every one was special and different, and I actually took a picture of the sky at sunset every day to document all the different kinds of sunsets.

We saw so much of the beautiful island of Aruba. This picture is of the kids gazing at the ocean on the eastern coast of the island.

We did LOTS of swimming! The kiddos especially enjoyed swimming in the pool.

Here's another sunset picture, complete with palm tree. This was taken at Fisherman's Huts, a beach in Aruba. In the distance, you can see a rain shower moving across the horizon.

These are the kiddos after climbing down to 1,000 Steps Beach on Bonaire. They were fussing about being hot and tired just before taking this picture, but you sure wouldn't know it by the smiles on their faces!

That's all I have for your for today. I'm trying to get back into the groove of stamping and daily life at home, attempting to balance all of the jobs and to-do lists. I'll stop back in soon with some more pictures to share. 'Bye for now!

Glad to see that you are back! Was wondering if you had a family tragedy and was happy to hear that you were on a month long vacation! I'm jealous.
