Our vacation last week was wonderful. It had just the right mix of activities and relaxation. We went with my mom, step-dad, sister and aunt. The house we stayed in was about a 3 minute walk to the beach on the northern end of the island. Everyone had their own bedroom which was super nice. The house also had a swimming pool which was awesome! Luke loved the pool as did the rest of us. It was a great place to cool off after riding our bikes (we all had one because we rented them for the week), hang out around while reading and just enjoy a lazy dip every now and then. The house was 4 stories tall so there were a bunch of stairs (good exercise) but there was also an elevator that Luke enjoyed pushing the buttons in. There was a large covered porch which was used multiple times daily whether eating a quick bite, relaxing or watching a few storms roll in over the water. It was great week spent with family.

This will be a long post because there are many pictures I want to share. So you are forewarned :)
First moments on the beach- all week Luke would pick up sand and then run to the water and throw it in.
Luke had no fear of the water; it made us a little nervous at first but he quickly learned he needed a hand when entering.
Riding bikes on the beach- Luke is peeking out of his cart behind Troy. And yes, I took this pic while in motion.
