We are home again after a great "vacation" up north. It wasn't exactly a vacation for John, since he had to be in class most of the time, but it was a super fun time for me and the kids. I felt that I simply got to enjoy them this past week, without the distractions of everyday housework. Not to mention that breakfast, lunch, and dinner were completely taken care of for the week...that part was great!
The first day I took the kids to a large outlet/regular mall. They had every store one could think of - from Nieman Marcus to Sprockets to Zales Outlet. It was fun wandering around window shopping.
Somewhere in the course of the day we also rode a carousel and a ladybug ride, spent time at the mini zoo, rode twisty slides at the play area, watched a puppet show, and walked across rope bridges.
Much thanks to our friends for having us at their place! We had so much fun and can't wait to see you all again!
We made it home safe and sound. No puke on the return trip. Ah yes...Abby initiated us with the joys of "puke in the car". That was something that we hadn't experienced yet as parents, and well...we can do without that. Aside from that, though, the trip was so fun!
