This is the first time we went away for a few days with the kids (just the 4 of us) and it was really so nice. They had SO much fun which made the trip even that more great.
We stayed at a family resort right in town that has the best pool for kids, the only downside is that the weather was not the greatest so we only got to use the awesome outside pool a couple of times for a short amount of time.
The resort also had a super yummy restaurant that had the BEST virgin spicy bloody marys, I'm sure they are even better with alcohol.
Later that night we walked to the little town and browsed some stores and ate outside. The place we ate at wasn't the greatest but it was OK, we were just having so much fun being together with NO AGENDA. I usually always have an agenda or something planned and this was the first time I didn't and it was awesome.
After dinner we headed for ice cream, of course!! (you will start to see a trend with us getting ice cream)
Her face says "really Mom, I should be in bed!!"
We did stop at a little souvenir store and I just had to get some fudge and taffy, and little man picked out a new blue marble - he's really into marbles these days.
Couldn't resist a picture of Ella Bella in a towel, is there anything cuter?!?
Once the hubs came back to the room he suggested we go mini golfing
We only got clubs and balls for the kids to play since we knew us playing too would just not happen. Turns out Brayden handled his game very well and needed no help!
Right when we came outside to eat our ice cream it started pouring, I'm talking down pouring! We stayed under the restaurant canopy outside and finished and then decided to
walk run back to the hotel - For some reason watching the hubs push the double stroller while running put me into a full on laughing attack, I was behind them trying to keep up, but clearly couldn't. We were soaked by the time we got back to the hotel, but it for some reason it was so funny to me!
The day we were leaving was of course the nicest day we had. We started out by going out to breakfast then went back to the room to pack everything up. We decided to stay past check out and take advantage of the fun outdoor pool :)
Now that's a BIG belly :)
After a couple hours outside it was time to head home. Brayden kept saying how much fun he had on vacation and would bring up everything we did while there. Although there are times when I hate how fast time is going and how big he is getting, it is pretty cool to watch him experience these fun moments and actually know what's going on and be able to express how much fun he had.
Can't wait for our next little getaway! That time we will be a family of 5!!!
