  1. Looks like so much fun! I’m jealous.

    What a lovely collection of photos to depict a beautiful vacation. Loved that sun!

  3. Oh man! What a fun time you had and I love the collage you made. My family all live in Florida and I know how it feels to visit and come home to the snow. It’s throws you for a loop, that’s for sure. How did Simon enjoy the sand? How was the flight?

  4. I love that Nome, AK was important enough to be on that milepost!! Looks like you had a great vacation. *sigh*, I SO need one of those. =)
