Well, It Sort of Fits

No, we are not in the woods, camping in a tent and looking at for bears. But we are still spending 90% of our time outdoors this week! Time at the beach is pretty relaxing.

Except that I need to stay under an umbrella most of the time. I am almost vampire-like with my reactions to the sun! Now, Steve turns a nice shade of brown when he is in the sun for like 3 minutes.

Vacations sure have changed over the years. I remember flying to Paris, driving to Key West in a convertible and dancing at the clubs in Maimi until the wee hours of the morning! Steve and I used to go white-water rafting every year. And he took this really amazing trip to Mt. Glacier National Park in Montana during the summer of 1999.

I love hearing the stories about spotting bears and seeing the hot springs. He is so comfortable in that setting. I love to hike, but am not sure I can sleep in a tent for one night, never mind 9 of them.

He took this trip right before meeting me. Kinda cool to look at the pictures and wonder if he knew that life was about to shift dramatically!

He pulled out these pictures when he saw the August kit featuring Road Map. So here is yet another layout using OA.

These days, we have family vacays! Fun on the beach, meltdowns, marshmallows, carousels and ice cream! We wouldn't trade it!
