This past week Brandon and I took the kids on a road trip to Florida. We where celebrating my birthday and our 7th wedding anniversary. What better way to bring in my 30th year than by celebrating it with family! The older I get the more I appreciate and treasure this time with family and I wanted to celebrate this milestone next to them.

Elijah and Esther did fantastic on our 18+ hours on the road and it was totally worth it when he got to see the BEACH! Even though it was windy and in the 70’s he enjoyed it!

Esther, on the other hand, did not appreciate the sand hitting her so we decided to go on a bike ride while Elijah enjoyed the beach with the Abuelos.

Brandon asked me what was the best part of the trip and other than seeing family. I mentioned that the food was by far the best part! We ate like we would not see food in 3 weeks! We ate...and ate...and ate some more. It was great!

While we were in Florida we also got to see some of our friends we love and treasure! Elijah got to see his best friend on our last day in Florida. He was ecstatic!

As I reflect in our trip, I am grateful that He has given me the best family and friends one could ask for.
