Family time

When mom says come home, you say 'yes ma'am'. 

Mom and Sasa...

We all, finally, had time to take, no other school, travel, events(thanks to CoVid) to attend to, so home we went - both brothers and their family, myself, mom and dad. I did fly, which was uncomfortable in the sense of catching something and not doing my part but again, for family I will jump through all the hoops. 

Dad and T3 picked me up at the airport. 

We had 4 days together, all of us which is rare these days and we made the most of it.  Lots of laughter, stories, playing with the kids, a good bit of work for dad and cooking all the food.  It was also a proper vacation for me from work.  I was thinking, this has been the first time in many years that I've been able to enjoy some summertime on the water without being completely exhausted or worried about eating the wrong food or getting in an exercise session for the upcoming races.  All good stuff! 

Dad, Andrea and Verka hanging out on the dock. 

My brother, Tully, and myself - wonder what he said.

My sweet niece and nephew - they are hamming it up. 

I'm back at my desk, reflecting on the weekend and I'm so thankful I was able to spend that time with my family.  I'm sore, I'm sunburned but I'm rejuvenated and looking forward to the coming weeks.

Cruising on the boat with pops

Maybe Sasa has learned how to drive?

She definitely learned how to kneeboard.
