I'm tickled. Tickled that my children actually say things like "God's creation is awesome." They are thinking about their Creator and all that he has done. Oh, this is good news to a mother's heart.

I'm tickled. Tickled that even though we are having a wonderful time, everyone agrees that it will be nice to go home. I know many people, children and adults, who can't wait to get out of the house, and don't want to go back. It thrills me that our family enjoys our own home.

I'm tickled.

Hello Mom.
Yes, we are having a great vacation. I only want to go home to see Chester and to play my cello again though. But then again, home DOES sound pretty nice.
Thanks so much for bringing us!

It is always fun to go ... and always fun to go home. I am so glad that when you leave you will take with you some wonderful memories, full hearts, refreshed spirits, and a bag o' shells. Oh, don't forget Grandma!

It's nice to go but it's special to have home and know home is there and waiting for us.

What Becky said!
To answer your question, the flowers are called Ice Plant. The needles are a sage-y green, and the flowers are dark purple although they don't show up that way in my pictures. It comes back every year, and spreads. It's heat tolerant, and a great plant for someone that doesn't do well with plants. Like me! It pretty much exists on its own.

I'm glad you are having such a good time, but it's nice to have a peaceful home to return to. I'm sure, after you've been home for a few days, you'll hear "I wish we could go back". =o)

It's always nice to get back home after a great vacation. That first night in your own bed always feels wonderful!

Oh Tracy, that is so lovely to hear - you must be so proud :). It shows that you are a mother who loves and invests time into her kids. It's great that your family really treasure home as well. So glad you have all had a wonderful vacation! You deserve it. Blessings to you all :)
