Just Happy.

This picture deserves its own post.  Not because I look so beautiful "au naturelle", but because it represents the happiest I've ever seen Gracie.  Gracie always exudes joy, but this week on vacation...she was just happy.  I don't know if I can really explain the difference, and it was subtle... but I saw it.  This was the first time since she has come home that we were all in the same place for an extended period of time.  We didn't get in the car for entire week, and she loved it!  She loved spending time with her family and even though she only got one nap the entire week, she was sweet and pleasant.

I think this is the first time she ever fell asleep on me like this :)
