Destin, FL - Part 2

Our days consisted of an early trip to the beach as the sun came up, followed by a big breakfast thanks to Dziadzi, beaching it all morning with the family, afternoons floating in the pool as Mr. Lucas napped, and nights full of tasty dinners and yummy pomegranate martinis. Sleep, wake & repeat.

Remind me again, why does vacation have to end?

Destin, FL - Part 1

This year we joined our family in Destin, Florida for vacation. As usual, the week was a blast. But this trip took the lead for our favorite Wujek summer vaca yet.  

One of our favorite moments was the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. It was a two hour, interactive cruise where Lucas got to participate in water gun fights, singing, dancing, and treasure hunts! Lucas' Nan even came prepared with a pirate costume for Lucas, complete with a sword and telescope! It was fantastic!

Needless to say, "Ahoy matey!" is a new common phrase in our household.

A week in New York

A few weeks ago, I took Lucas to Syracuse, NY to visit his great grandmother. It was fantastic! Our trip included a visit to the Syracuse zoo, eating the famous hot dogs of Heid's, and Lucas' first time horseback riding!

Living far away from family, these moments always seem to pass far too quickly. But through that, I have learned to treasure the times we do have together. #thesearethemoments

Here are some pics from our trip!
