I’ve realized my favorite part of summer.
Yes, there are vacations.
Yes, there is time off.
Yes, there is time to recharge (hopefully!)
But, my very favorite part is F A M I L Y time!
The last two summers we’ve vacationed with my brother, sister in law and their four kids. Last summer, my parents and sister joined us.

This summer we celebrated Moustapha ‘s dad’s 70th birthday with a family vacation to the hill country. All of his sisters, their spouses, kids and his parents. I know people often say they need a vacation from their vacation.
But, I love the relaxed vacations with our extended family. 
It’s a real, blessed treat. 
My hope is for a long lifetime of family time!
