We are back from vacation and of course it has been a busy week. But we had such a good time. We spent lots of time on the beach of course. And no matter how many times we go we still get sun burned. There is always some spot you forget to put lotion on.
This year Erica's friend Lindsey went with us and Tyler's girlfriend Emma went too. The girls were so much fun. We had extra hands to take pics of us on the beach. We usually have to ask somebody going by to take our picture. For what ever reason we waited until the last night to take pictures on the beach. It got dark quickly but we still got some great shots.

This year we took a boat ride to an island and got to see dolphins and hunt for shells. Some of us got a little worried when the captain said to be careful of baby sharks swimming close to the shore of the island. Needless to say Emma and I didn't go into far. Tyler has no fear and went pretty far into the water. As far as we know there wasn't any close but you never know. We did see lots of jelly fish on the beach close to our beach house. The house was remodeled this year so it was very different but we loved it. And as always our favorite place is the front porch were Roger and I had breakfast every morning.

We've only been back a few days but it seems like weeks since we were on vacation. It was so relaxing and now we are back to the same roller coaster as before. Life keeps going full speed ahead. Hope you all are enjoying your summer vacation.

Its been a crazy couple of weeks. Last weekend I went to a training retreat for I Remember When. Took me out of my comfort zone driving to Wisconsin for 5 1/2 hours by myself. I couldn't have done it without my brothers GPS. I still got lost and I'm sure it had me going in circles. They sure do have you make alot of left turns. But I finally made it and we had so much fun. Learned a lot of great business info and we went to see Lake Delton completely dry!! There are so many neat women with this company and we all became fast friends.
And we went to a scrapbook store while we were there. Which is funny since we all SELL scrapbook supplies. But you can never have enough stuff and this store carried wonderful totes, bags and paper we hadn't seen yet. The gals there were so much fun. They gave us all a free gift for coming to the store and one of the gals got up on the counter and took our picture in the middle of the store.

I got back from that trip Sunday night and today we are leaving for South Carolina. We love the beach house we stay at there. They have completely remodeled it so we're anxious to get there and see the new changes. They have pictures on the internet but it's not the same as actually seeing it. Tyler's excited that they have 5 flat screen TV's. But I think we all will be spending most of our time at the beach!
