Hey y’all! Happy Sunday morning to you! Ryan, Henry, and I are up early this morning to hit the road to Gwynn’s Island. The car is packed to the gills and we’re ready for 4 days of relaxation and some fun in the sun! Ryan’s mom, Kathie, is close family friends with a lady that has a house right on the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay. They have a big sandy beach and a large pier for fishing. I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since we last did a long weekend getaway there (that time when Ryan lost his wedding ring!!).We’re heading there today and I know we’ll have a blast exploring, fishing, watching sunsets, grilling out, swimming, eating s’mores, and enjoying some quality family time.
This time around it will be bittersweet. It’s the first time going back to the bay where we don’t have Jackson with us. To say Jax had fun last time we visited would be quite the understatement. He played fetch and swam in the water for hours… Digging and rolling around in the sand… He was in heaven!! I plan to bring along some of Jax’s ashes to sprinkle into the bay while we’re there. It will surely be a sentimental moment and give us some closure knowing that a piece of him will always be there. This time we’re taking Henry for the first time!! He will have the time of his life! Kathie’s dog, Brutus, is coming along too so he and Henry will explore the island together! Follow along his Instagram hashtag, #lifewithmyhenry, to watch our latest adventures! We’re going with Ryan’s mom, brother, and adorable niece. Ryan’s great aunt and uncle are joining us as well! Looking forward to spending some quality time with everyone. Will be sure to take some pictures along the way to capture all the fun! Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂
