What a weekend--and it's only 1/2 over!

We are finally back together as a family and have spent a pretty much perfect day together.  Coffee on deck, underway for a morning sail across the bay, back to the marina before rain passed through, to the movies (kids' request), a walk at the marina, climbing the tree, underway AGAIN to anchor outside the marina on a gorgeous evening, dinner and fishing on the hook, then a fireworks show off the beach, compliments of the folks getting married there.  The sunset, moon set, and stars were all perfect.  I am happy!

Pfft...get me back on my boat!

This weekend I drove to IL to pick up the kiddos while the Captain stayed behind to work and have man time. Worst.  Move.  Ever.  Ok, maybe it wasn't that bad, but ~7hrs solo driving every day for the last 4 days (with the kids for the past 2!) has been a touch hellish.  It was awesome to see my family, though, and I really loved seeing my kids interact with their cousins.  We are all very tired tonight, and getting up before 6 a.m. is going to be beyond painful, but the kids had a blast.  My sister's family is awesome, hosting the kids for over a week!
