Just My Family

Have you seen all the things that Moxie is doing this week?

Please. Please. Please.

Go check it out!7 clown OK then!

7 Clown Circus, who does Wordful Wednesdays,

has 5 vacation questions this week.

Now I know, I know, I know that

I have been posting MILLIONS

of vacation picture this week

beach 5And you are getting sick of it, right?

My sincere apologies!

How can I not play along with the theme though,

since it is for Moxie media?

I must.

beach 2I simply must!

So, let me tell you,

I used to go on fabulous vacations!

When I was a Senior in High School.

my class went to Puerto Rico.

Now granted, we were on a missions trip,

but Puerto Rico is still Puerto Rico!

beach 3 Totally glam!

And then, when I was a Senior in college

we went to Israel.

Can you even imagine?

It was a trip of a lifetime and I am SO thankful I could go.

It was very special to walk in the same places

Jesus Walked.

beach 4So, now, you must be wondering how I top all of that, right?

Well, let me tell you how.

beach 8 I go to Wildwoods, New Jersey.

It is not so glam.

It is not so tropical.

I don’t think Jesus walked down a single street there.

beach 7But do you know what is in Wildwood that I love so much?

candid 2My family.

That is what is in Wildwood.

On the dirty beaches.

In the grungy shag carpeting.

In the mayhem and chaos that is Wildwoods,

there is also my family!

beach 9 And my family, well,

they make every vacation better than

I could ever imagine.

beach 1

We definitely fight sometimes…

We totally annoy each other…

and drive each other batty

but, at the end of the day,

they fill my life with love

and I would travel anywhere with them.

Anywhere on the whole planet!


When is your next vacation?

When you look at your life,

the greatest happinesses are family happinesses.

Beautiful. What camera are you taking these awesome pictures with. You are rocking the camera and the editing! I love vacations that involve family!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I LOVE this. You are so right, it does not have to be glamorous (that is nice though) but it is more important to have the people you love with you than to be at the place you love.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Sounds wonderful! I love vacationing with my family, too. And we try not to drive each other nuts (and it's not the 7 kids getting annoyed with one another!). We've made some really great memories.

I agree, the best vacations are where ever my family is-even if it is at home...and not of vacation. :)

Are you sick of my....love, love, love your pictures. They are just beautiful.

Tiaras said...

aww - beautiful post! Israel - lucky girl!! Love PR - been there 4 times

Travelers can still enjoy even on a tight budget. Just try to do some research on cheap airfare since most airlines offer lower price. Doing some outdoor activity can also save some penny. Enjoying the scenery is an adventure itself.

I would LOVE to go to Israel! How neat that you got to go! I would love to take a vacation with all of my family. But I think they'd all rather not. Oh well! The hubby & I haven't been on a real vacation in 5 years. We are planning on going to Disney World next year. I can't wait!

magiceye said...

Grandma J said...

Oh I love all the family vacation pictures! You have such a happy family.

I love the ocean....anywhere.

Jennifer Bowen said...

You have an amazing family, Rebeckah! =) My husband and I would love to take the kids to an African Safari. We're still on the planning stage. I think we'll make it there some time in 2011. Not bad, right?

I never did answer your question. We usually vacation in June. Went to Hilton Head this past June so I am looking forward to see where we may go next. It always involves a beach, pool and golf course :)

Thanks for stopping by! It was fun to see your family vacation pics. Isn't family the best?

That is a very special way to make The Wildwoods wonderful. Family is Fabulous.

What could be better than family. I love all those pictures and seeing the ones of Kaish with his grandma and grandpa make my heart melt. I can't wait to see pictures of my parents with their grandchild!

I LOVE that red and white checkered shirt. I want it! So far you've led a very full, bountiful life. And you're just getting started!

Angie - The Arthur Clan said...

You've been to Israel?! I cannot even imagine how incredibly cool that must have been.

I agree with you though...anywhere spent with family is the best vacation in the world to me!
