More vacation pictures

 The first night we were there we had one son and his family that hadn't arrived.  We took this picture that night.
This was taken when everyone was there.  Not sure why the old folks looked so washed out.
And here we all are.  Each little family in it's own little group.  Every night we got the kids out of the pool or home from the beach and took showers to head out for dinner.  One night we grilled and another night we had fresh fish tacos made by our SIL the chef.  We ended up eating out early every night and found that was a great time avoiding the crowds. 

You may note that our youngest son isn't with us.  It would not be a pleasant trip for him or us if he did go.  He has his own schedule and needs his own space.  Not to say that he wasn't calling three times a day with his current drama.  On Sunday we had a major blowup and we are still rebounding.  He couldn't understand why we didn't want him to move a girl he just met into his condo that he just moved back in.  We are talking less than 24 hours of knowing her.  She is still married and has a 2 year old.  So he has moved out of the condo again and has moved in with her parents.  She still lives with her soon to be x in another town.  Does that make any sense.  No it doesn't.  He is so uncapable of making good choices.  But, I must say this time we are going for the tough love for sure.  He is on his own.  We have talked to him but we are backing away. 

We have had some positive showings.  Just wish I had some news for you.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods with the crazy weather.

I am so glad you had fun and the family pictures are just great. It is too bad about your youngest son but it is what it is and you are going to have to stand strong or be taken advantage of again. I will keep you in my prayers. xo Diana

Great photo of your lovely family.
Too bad that your son has such poor judgement. He will have to learn the hard way. I tend to agree with the others. You have done all you can for him. I really feel ad that he won't listen to reason.

So glad you had a wonderful time with your family. It is hard to be torn by having a good time and pulled back by a son who is having a difficult time. Tough love is the hardest isn't it?

Ive got my fingers crossed for you that one of those showings will result in a buyer soon!!!
as for your son.. I know it must be very hard to stand by and watch him make poor choices. sometimes we do just have to let go.. and love from a distance.
hopefully it all works out well.
Have a great weekend my friend!

Glad you got to see your Colorado family. That fishing boy sure does love the great outdoors and all its critters. It definitely sounds like tough love is needed with your youngest. Anyone who is not yet divorced shouldn't even be thinking about getting into another relationship anyways.
