Family Time at the Beach

One thing we enjoyed about our trip to the beach was spending time with family.  You miss a lot and lose touch when you are away for two solid years.  It was good to catch up and just hang out a while together.  It was good for our boys to spend time with family and get to know them.

We loved being home for the 4th of July this year.  It was also great to spend it at the beach.  I mentioned in another post that it has been 10 years since we were home for this holiday and it was our boys first time to celebrate it in the States.

There was a fireworks show at the beach that night.  Everyone took chairs out and sat on the sand to watch.  It was really pretty and a fun memory for the boys.

fun times!

We miss family when we are away.  Holidays and special occasions are the hardest times.  I try hard to make those times extra fun and special when we are in Guatemala to make up for the fact that our hearts are usually a little sad.  It just makes times like this more special because we know that our time with them is short.
