We just returned home from our first family vacation with Elijah. We had a wonderful time at the lake. All of us enjoyed swimming and just lazing around in the lake. We found out that Elijah LOVES the water. Don would hold him on his belly and he would kick his legs and wave and splash his arms in the water then dunk his face in. He didn't care for his floaty very much. It was too confining for him.
I enjoyed watching all of my kids hang out with each other and enjoy each other's company. Don't get me wrong, by the end of the week, they were getting a little edgy with one another but for the most part it was all good.
We rented a boat one day, a paddle boat (UUGH too much work!), and a wave runner one day. We took one day and shopped at the outlet mall and one day we went and played miniature golf. I think the kids had a good time and I know Mom and Dad did.
This may be our last family vacation with all of our kids. Randy is joining the army and may be gone by summer next year. The guys are planning a big fishing vacation before he leaves. It is a father-son trip. Anyway, I tried to enjoy every minute with all of them this year! :)
We also celebrated 4 months home with Elijah on the 21st AND Tifanie's 20th birthday on the 20th.
Life is good and we are certainly blessed in the Hubbard house!
