Last week we took a little road trip down the coast to the beach. Dare I say it was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had in a long time? Well, moments of it were anyway. Relaxing hardly comes to mind while vacationing with 4 kids including a mobile baby, but it was. I think the key was space.
We had a 3 bedroom condo all to ourselves, so we all had space to spread out. I think we now need a kind size bed, though sleeping in one was kind of like sleeping alone even though a flailing baby and husband were sleeping right next to me. On second thought, having more space in our bed might tempt others to join us. Nevermind.
Somebody wasn't a fan of the beach at first. I don't blame her, I'm not much of a fan of sand either. But by the last day she was eating handfuls of it. She came around.
Beach to pool, pool to beach...wash, rinse, repeat. It was fun, but boy was I happy to get back home. I'm still quite the homebody, only now I'm a tan homebody :)
