This is us right now.
Our kids have returned from spending the entire summer in the Philippines. They had an amazing vacation. They went zip-lining with their cousins in Davao. Saw the Mayon volcano. Watched and cheered on their Tita's team to victory in the Mixed-Gender Relay during the Ironman Triathlon in Camarines Sur. Met their cousins on my side of the family in Cebu while staying at the beautiful Shangri La Hotel.
While they were having their fun, my husband and I spent some much deserved and appreciated time alone together. It was almost like a honeymoon, but better. After ten years of marriage, we know each other so much better now. It made the experience ten times sweeter.
We are happy to inform you all that our home was spared any damage from Hurricane Irene. I know there are others who weren't as lucky. Thank you, Lord.
