Things I learned on Vacation

We went on a mini- family vacation (our first "just us 4" vacation ever) to Mystic, Connecticut. We had a blast! I will post with pictures soon -but, first, I thought I'd share some things that I learned while on vacation:

  • Connor has a real good "fake cry" along with the cutest and fakest cry face
  • Paige wants to walk. Really really badly.
  • Paige is a lot less fearful of things than I thought she'd be...(at the "spray pad" she was sitting in the sprinklers and putting her face in them)
  • Sleeping in a hotel room means sleeping in a double bed with 2 kids... because, where else would they sleep? (Certainly not in the pack n play, or in the other bed with their Dad!!)
  • Watching my kids really enjoy and experience something makes me so happy I teared up -- watching the kids amazed by the fish at the Mystic Aquarium and watching Connor's eyes grow wide as he saw the beach for the first time -- some of the best moments.
  • Just getting away for a weekend can rejuvinate the whole family.
  • Not having much money to get away can still work out if you plan it right.
All in all...a great weekend... will post some great pics soon. Here's a little teaser:
