Vacation Mode

This summer I took this picture at sunset on the beach in Mexico.

I wish I were here right now with the kids, the
sound of the surf pounding, the smell of the ocean, and the feel of a cold glass full of Kristi's fresh lime margarita in my hand.

After the sun set, the kids and I laid back on a hammock in the sand and watched the stars while listening to the waves recede to low tide. It was so dark, and the sky so clear, that we could see the Milky Way. It was heavenly.

Today, I'll be cleaning house and preparing my family, because although we're not headed back to Mexico anytime soon, I am leaving in the morning for Delaware to visit my best friend. For the next six days, Bob will be the PIC (parent in charge) and I will be back east visiting and abiding by my own schedule.

It's kind of like Mexico in my head.

Stay tuned; I'm bringing the laptop with me.

I can't wait to read all about how you turned Delaware into Mexico...

Maybe there is a hot little bar that serves the best Margarita's around....

Okay, now I want a lime margarita! I would be so afraid of leaving my family. I have major control issues, I know.

Wow - I felt a little jealous when you were describing Mexico but even more jealous at the thought of 6 days with a girlfriend. Have fun!
