Wow, what a vacation! I think this last 10 days have been the best vacation we have ever taken, and it wasn't anything we saw or any one thing we did, but simply time spent together as a family. We went to Daytona Beach and stayed in a beautiful condo(very large one to accommodate the ten of us). I took the girls to Disney World for two days but other than that our time was spent on the beach or in the condo. It has been a long time since we all sat down to eat dinner together or played a silly board game together or watched a funny movie together and it felt so good to do these things. I made it a point to spend some time alone with each child as well and had some very good conversations as we walked on the beach or sat on the balcony and watched dolphins play. We had a photographer come to the beach and take some family pictures which I will share over the next few days. I don't have a project to share today because I have laundry and unpacking to do.
ps. from left to right in the photo is Chad, our oldest son, Seth holding our grandson Dalton , Danielle, Mark our adopted son, Toy my husband, Sadie our youngest daughter, me, Shelby our middle daughter, and Heather our oldest daughter. You can click on the photo to enlarge it, just don't look too close at my wrinkles!

What a great picture, sounds like you had a great time. I agree, the best times are times spent with our families. Thanks for sharing these types of things about your family, I enjoy reading them.
