Vacation Blues

I’m sleepy today. Not exhausted but just sleepy! Too much to do after being gone for a week. But… it was a truly awesome week and well worth it.

I don’t know how it happens but work seems to multiply when we’re away. Business work, housework, homework, tax-time work (I hope our patient accounting firm isn’t reading this!), and a myriad of other things that need to be done. I’m sleepy just thinking about it all!

But enough about that. Our time in the mountains was absolutely magical. I love it when we have no agenda and no schedules to keep. We can simply enjoy our time together.  Chad’s family has had a place in Highlands, NC since he was a little boy. It’s so much fun to see the boys experiencing things that Chad experienced with his brothers when he was little. Here are some of our photos:

Sunset Rock

The Old Edwards Club at Highlands Cove

Sweet Treats (our favorite ice cream shoppe)

The Amazing Rescue Copter

We came home on Friday so that Chad could go to the Masters on Saturday. He had an awesome time and brought home some goodies for us! He got the big boys hats, a caddy bear for Miles, and a great little Masters pouch for me.

And yes, I know that Miles needs a haircut (and so does Davis). After a week of using a hairclip (much to the dismay of his daddy), I got Miles’s hair cut today. This is his THIRD hair cut and he is only 10 months old! He’ll love this photo when he’s in middle school:

As much as I love being on vacation, it’s always great to come home to a place that you love. The Family Circle Cup is in full swing this week and the weather is gorgeous.  I still think this is the most beautiful place on the east coast!

Hope to be back in the saddle tomorrow. I need a bunch of energy for the big week ahead but I’m so thankful for the little break from “real life” that we had last week. Glad that Colin’s spring break from Kindergarten turned into a fun family vacation!! 🙂
