We've just come from a short family holiday - a much needed time away together.
My lovely Aunty and Uncle let us stay at their beach house, such an awesome spot where you can get away from civilization... but not too far away.
I was once again blown away by the beauty of New Zealand beaches, and by how awesome God is...
The kids loved exploring the beaches, swimming in the freezing water, having a go at fishing, and spending heaps of family time relaxing, playing board games/cards, laughing, crochet and reading. The 3 boys even found and completed a kitten puzzle! Hehe.
Just having this short break has reinforced that we need to make the effort to do this regularly - to make sure we connect as a family, and create great memories for our kids.
So here's to carving out time for those you love, instead of letting the busyness of life take priority.
Here's to amazing generous family who let you stay in their homes.
Here's to New Zealand - such a beautiful place to live!
Here's to my precious husband and kids - I love you guys heaps.
