Sometimes I wonder if I set my expectations too high. Often I do. But our recent Springbreak holiday, one in which I had placed tremendous expectations, far surpassed and exceeded any of my preconceived hopes. Simply put, we had a wonderful time.
We decided to perpetuate a tradition of family pictures at the ocean in matching Nike shirts. The first took place at Thanksgiving of 2008. We all know from where our bread gets buttered; and it is kind of fun to give a nod as we recognize we are part of the Nike family.
But I digress... Springbreak of 2010 was a rousing success with just the right balance of structured and unstructured activity. Never did I feel that we were "on top of each other," nor beginning to get on each other's nerves. There was plenty for everyone to do, including plenty of nothing when that was our preference.
The boys were able to play golf twice; first at Salishan at Glen Eden Beach, and also our home course at Creekside Golf Club in Salem.
I already see this as the beginning of a tradition.
