Summer Vacations

When my kids were young,this time of year was so much fun. Like many families we took our family vacations as soon as school was out. The above is one of my very favorite family vacation photos, and probably the one my kids hated the most. Here are a few other family vacation photos when the kids were younger: Here they are in Montery, CA which is a great coastal town to visit in Northern CA. This was taken in Napa, Ca, also known as "wine country", a really beautiful place.
We went up to Yachats, Oregon one summer. We stayed right on the beach, and it was beautiful but I'm use to summer being like here in SoCal where I live. It was windy and chilly but the beaches were the best! I have to admit this is one of my favorite pictures of my kids. It was taken on the 4th of July one year at my sister's house, who lived close to me at the time. I look at the pictures above and realize how fast the time goes by, in the blink of an eye! It also reminds me to take more time scanning some of my favorite photos of our family vacations. I hope you all have a great summer and take some time to enjoy those kids as time really does pass in "the blink of an eye"!! Please stop by and visit Deborah to see more

Very cute! I never had children, but you made me want to ask my mom to share some of the same kinds of pictures with me from our family outings. I enjoy how much you love your family.~Jacque

My oldest melon head has taken his little family and headed to Florida for a 10 day vacation. Can you say I'm jealous? You betcha. Makes me feel the same way you do...just a little bit melancholy for when he and Jenn were still at home and vacationing with me! Great photos of your blond California kids!
