The Sweetest Thing


After we returned from our vacation to Hilton Head, Mr. Tennis, Maddy and I all thought about what we liked best about our trip.

Was it the beach? Oh yes, we loved the sand, the calming sound of the waves, body surfing!

Maybe pool time with new friends? Yes, that was loads of fun!

Was it bike-riding together in the mornings?
Even though it was very humid, we loved some bike time.

How about spending time with cousins and new friends? Yes, that was a special treat indeed.

But, while all those were so much fun, Maddy said it best. When asked what was her most favorite part of vacation, she said, "spending so much time with Mom and Dad!"
Right back at you sweetie!
