being away on vacation is such a privilege and one that we don't take for granted. if anything, we make sure we savor our annual family trips and make the most of our time away.
it's a time to relax, laugh, let loose and enjoy each other.
it's also a time to:
to eat ridiculous amounts of ice cream...
to explore new places.
to savor good food.
this was actually the only yummy thing at paula deen's restaurant. really and truly. sad and disappointed.
to be extra adventurous.
to go on aimless bike rides.
(clearly aimless because we ended up in front of a large recycling bin!)
to be loved
and to love on your nearest and dearest.
to eat crazy ridiculous amounts of food in whatever hodgepodge dishes the beach house has on hand.
to do your best impression of amelie and her raspberries, only with olives.
to have your picture taken again and again for no other reason than because your shirt is cute.
to have large family meals where the talking stops once the food comes out.
to find treasures.
and most importantly, to have the freedom to walk around shirtless, munching on dried squid.
good times, folks. good times.
what are your vacation musts?
