Tap, tap, tap... is this thing on?
Um... hi! Yup, it's me! I'm back! Er... yeah. Sorry about that! We're just back from our first EVER honest-to-goodness family vacation, and I totally meant to post before we left, but... well... time kinda got away from me. Does it help at all if I tell you I really missed you? You were never far from my thoughts, Blog. Every day, each time I'd grab my camera, I'd think "Gotta get some pictures for The Blog!"
In fact... I've been selecting, editing and cropping my fingertips to a frazzle for the past 2 hours, all in preparation for sharing the highlights of our vacation with you, Blog. See? I'm really not all that bad. Still love me?
Where'd we run off to, you may be wondering? Well, we spent a lovely (though frickin' HOT) week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, enjoying the beach, the ocean, the seashells, the pool, and each other (most of the time, heh). We've never really been AWAY with the kids before, and with everything our family has been through this year, we figured we were more than due for some fun in the sun. Plus, it was Émilie's birthday this week! Yup, the Little Miss turned seven on Wednesday. SEVEN! I keep asking her to stop growing older, because she's only dragging me down with her and I don't like it at ALL, but darnit, she just won't. Whaddaya gonna do, right?
Rather than give you a play by play of the week, here are a few highlights, photo essay style.
Good times, people. Y'all shoulda been there.
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
