Family Fun Time

Beachside SewingWe went to the beach with Jason’s in-laws last week and had a wonderful vacation. It was just the sort of break we needed to spend some quality time with our kids and extended family.

In addition to some relaxing beach-side sewing (can you see the volleyball players in the background?), we got to do some fun activities.

Bike Ride on the BoardwalkFamily Fun RunBecause we love to eat lots of yummy food, we had to keep fit by going on bike rides along the boardwalk and lacing up our shoes for a morning run with our oldest son.

Relaxing by the BeachDigging in the SandMy  favorite thing to do in the warm breezy afternoons was to lounge in a chair and read on the beach while the kids played and built sandcastles. The boys enjoyed ball and frisbee on the sand. You can see the rental house there in the background – the only one story on the beach (it’s a friend of the family’s so it’s good to have connections).

And we got to see the sights. We went to the movies (Harry Potter part 2) and visited a local church museum where I found this lovely sculpture depicting a woman making a Double Wedding Ring quilt. It’s entitled Fulfillment.

After a fun week like this, I feel very fulfilled!
