What day is it again?

This past weekend was our somewhat-spontaneous family beach trip.  My family often took short, last-minute trips when I was young, but Jeremy's didn't, so a vacation without months of planning is relatively new for him. 

I'm back at work today, struggling to readjust from "beach time".  Coming back in on a Tuesday that feels like a Monday is never much fun, but today is especially disorienting.  It doesn't help that views like this are so fresh in my mind...

This was the girls' third trip to the Gulf Coast, and as I mentioned before, we hoped and prayed that this vacation went more smoothly than the first two did.  Thankfully, things finally fell into place for this family vacation, and we had a great trip!

We had a wonderful time, and Addison and Mackenzie were little angels...even on Friday, when they did not have a nap.  Addison slept in my arms through dinner that night, but I didn't mind a bit.  They slept well; they ate well (as well as they usually do, at least); and they had a blast playing in the sand and the pool.  We really could not have asked for a better trip.  Even the six-hour ride home, which was our biggest fear, went so much better than we dared to expect.  They were so exhausted that a lot of the time in the car was spent like this:

I have much more to say about our trip and lots of pictures too, of course, but it will have to wait until I'm feeling a little more caught up here in the real world.

How was your weekend?  Did I miss anything exciting?  (I mean, besides the Grey's Anatomy premiere, which is waiting on my DVR at home!)
