so we went to bali last week. danny had a bit of time off because it was mid-semester exams and last year we won a free week at a hotel in bali! a free week! it was one of those things were they try to sell you a vacation club deal. we didn't buy in ;) but we took the free vacay.
it was a really nice time for our little family. we did a lot of swimming, hanging out around the hotel, eating delicious food and a little beach time.
luke was terrified of the tide and waves…. which was odd because he's not scared of much. anytime the water came up the shore he would scream and say it was trying to get him. it was hilarious. we planted him away from the water and let him play in the sand. he loved it… he ended up rolling in it.
|danny's photographic talent. :) the others were of me in my bather… they will stay off the blog. :)|
and mary loved the water. she didn't go in too deep but loved playing on the shore. she sat in the water, danced around the sand and sang into the ocean. i love my little girl who is very much in her own world.
|by danny again. my sweet girl.|
but, after our time at the beach, we realized we just aren't beach people. danny and i hate the sand and it turns out the kids do too. they didn't want to go back because they hated getting sandy. i mean, we were in bali so i was trying to encourage the beach! i reminded them of how much fun they had and promised it would be fun again. they still didn't want to go. secretly, danny and i were relieved. :)
although we did love going to watch the sunset. one night luke and i had a sweet time together talking about the sunset and the greatness of our Creator. i loved it.
i had one goal with my time there. i wanted to get a few good photos of our kids. we put it off until the last night…. and it didn't happen. tear. we were running late, then i pulled my camera out and it was foggy again!! by the time the fog was gone it was too dark and cloudy. though this is a bad photograph, i couldn't help but show luke's face. such a ham.
we were so thankful for our time in bali. we've never had a family vacation that long and it was so fun and good for us.
