I normally do these "reflective" kind of posts on Fridays, but I was just too swept up in Paradise last week to sit down and really use my brain for anything productive. But now that I've been sucker-punched by reality once again, I decided to look back on the finer things I discovered on our family vacation....
** Every day should end in a hammock.
** Photobombers are all kinds of AWESOME. (See above picture for proof....)
** Drinks taste better when they come with a tiny umbrella.
** I love not cooking.
** Only having to worry about getting a good seat by the pool is pretty darn refreshing.
** "Island time" is definitely my kind of time.
** There's an unfortunate weenie bikini in every sandy crowd.
** My son could win a bacon eating contest without even trying.
** Taking a dump at 9,740 feet above sea level is pretty darn cool when you're eight years old.
** It's important to fill up your gas tank before driving to the top of a volcano.
** Flip flops make your feet smile.
** I REALLY love not cooking.
** Fear is a foreign concept to my adventurous little snorkeling daughter.
** You just can't beat a Hawaiian sunset.
** It sucks to have to sit next to the lady eating CornNuts on a nine hour flight.
** Re-entry into the real world is one ginormous buzzkill.
