alaska vacation

It's hard to do a "brief recap" of family vacation this year.  Wow, it was amazing.  I'm so blessed to have married into one of the greatest families I've ever met, and get to vacation with 4 awesome families every year.  Since my in-laws moved to Alaska last summer, we did vacation up there! Here are a few of the highlights of the trip. Whale Watching -- Stinking amazing.  It was so cool to be out on a boat and see the beauty of Alaska. To see animals in the wild and experience it's true beauty.

Family Time -- By far, the best part of the trip for me. Living so far from family, we don't get much time with them and trips like this I try to soak in as much as possible.  I really love spending time with my sisters. I don't like the term "in-laws" because of the negative that comes with it, and there is no negative here! These girls are my sisters. Reagan, one of the coolest girls I've ever known. A young woman with her head on straight, full of life and a blast to be around. It's a blessing to be her big sis.  And Cayce...the sister I always wanted. We are only 6 weeks apart in age, which makes us practically twins and not only is she my sister, but my friend. I could go to her with anything, and I know we will always be there for each other through everything.  What an awesome group of people!!

Our Getaway -- The first night away from the munchkin.  Hubs and I decided since we haven't had this chance, now would be a good opportunity.  We booked a night away at the Alyeska Resort which was beautiful, and had a blast together. We slept in without a kiddo waking us. We talked about life, our marriage, what is ahead for us and how blessed we are. We loved and laughed. We sang Disney songs in the car.  All the normal things that married people do right? It was a blast.

Extra hands -- A huge thank you to everyone who held, played with, changed diapers, fed bottles and just simply loved on my little girl. I was able to do things I enjoy doing, like sitting on the couch, baking and just enjoying family.

Lots and lots of BABIES!!! -- I might have baby fever again already :)

It was a very relaxing, wonderful and fun trip. A huge thank you to my incredible in-laws who made it all possible and opened up their home to us!! You guys are awesome and we appreciate everything! Thanks for loving on my girl!
