Wellon Family Vacation

I realised just the other day that I haven't posted pictures of our vacation.  Things get hectic and life tends to take over.  Work, kids, and every day life takes over and I lose track of the small things in life.  I lose track of the small and very sentimental things life.  

While on vacation I tried to soak in the small things Lilah would wake up and say "I swimmy, I swimmy" 

Hubs and I took the kids to the pool and Lilah would just stand there and wouldn't swim!!

I forget to soak these moments in.  I forget how sacred they are.  I thought that since Eve was older I would have learned just how quick they go by, but I have gotten tainted.  I've gotten tainted by the outside world and how precious the moments of innocent childhood are.  

This is the first vacation Hubs and I have taken with the girls.  

Looking back a few weeks after....I miss it.  I wish we could go back.  We were relaxed.

Hubs often works 6 days a week and I work 3 full days bad have my online business and blog.  We get dis-connected.  I forget how precious life is and how important it is to appreciate the little things.  

When did I become so jaded?.  When did I stop appreciating the small and beautiful things in life?

I wish we could slow down.  

Life should say that before you have kids and become an adult.  ENTER HERE IF YOU DARE!!.  I wish I had a warning at how quick life passes by.  

We've been back from vacation for 2 weeks.  Things have gone back to normal.  Hubs working 6 days a week, me working, keeping up with house work etc.  

Vacations are very short lived - even if they are so memorable.

I wish we could be on vacation every day - but thats obviously not possible.  

Hubs and I have to learn to appreciate the small things and milestones.  

We need to slow down and enjoy life every day.  

I realised just how lucky I am.  I am so lucky to have 2 beautiful and healthy children.  I always knew that but it didn't really sink in.  

We had a fantastic vacation and we are going to do it every year.  

Next vacation is Canada with the girls in July 2012.

OHMY! The Koala picture -- TOO CUTE! These are all great. Looks like such a fun vacation -- everyone looks so genuinely happy! It's so easy to forget to stop and appreciate the small things when you have a chaotic life as us mommies do. It's always nice to sit back and reflect on all of the little (and wonderful!) things sometimes.
