I want a vacation! I need a vacation! I want to lay on the sand, soak in

When was the last time you went on a vacation?
The last time I went on vacation was over 2 years ago!!!! H & I decided we needed a getaway. Not to mention, we were approaching our 5 year wedding anniversary. We wanted to celebrate.
Back then we only had Princess Ninja who was a little over a year old. We purchased all sorts of things that were meant to keep her busy for the
never ending 4 hour plane ride. We bought various DVDs, coloring books, crayons, snacks. I was packing so much stuff in my carry-on to keep her entertained there was barely room for my wallet and lip gloss.

Looking back at the pictures, it reminded me of a great family vacation.
