Summer Traditions

Like most families during the summer season, we love going to the beach. Whether it is catching a cruise or spend a week at the Gulf, we always take some time to put our toes in the sand. There is something therapeutic about listening to the ocean and walking the beach.

The summer before Ben was born we, somewhat accidentally, started a summer family tradition. We took Gracie on a cruise and purchased a Christmas ornament. It was a flamingo sitting on a lounge chair. Since then we have purchased ornaments to commemorate our trips.

Does your family have any summer traditions?
