We just got home yesterday from our very first vacation with all three boys. (I did not pack light when it came to the baby, we took all of the things he is use to having at home to keep him as comfortable as possible) Let me start off by saying this is only possible if you have a mom that loads up and goes with you just to be a babysitter.
My mom went with us to hang out in the room with the baby, his first trip to the gulf and he never even seen the waves 🙈 but by her doing that I was able to somewhat relax on the beach and play with Layton. He usually made one good trip down before he went back to the room for a nap. His naps were extra long while we were there so he never really came back out after waking up. Logan was good, he had his best buds so he was occupied and happy the entire trip. We have been trying to get a trip together with some friends of ours who’s boys are logans friends, it just never seemed to work out. Finally, like maybe two weeks before we left, we all realized everyone’s schedule had a few open days so we hurried up and got it together.
The 3 big kids and the dads all traveled in Cliff’s truck while me, my mom, Nicolette, and my two babes traveled in mine. Of course we made a bizillon “I gotta pee pee” stops and a few get out and give the car seats a break stops, eventually we made it. The first beach day was overcast so we took the 7 year olds to the waterpark. I may or may not had the most fun 😎 I have been waiting for a big waterslide for two summers and finally had a trip that I wasn’t pregnant, so I hit every slide. Our favorite thing to do at the beach, besides being complete bums, is eat. Our first night I finally got my hands on the most delicious fish tacos from Hammerhead Freds. Had dinner at Shuckums, The Saltwater Grill (wine & Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna 💙), then cured our hankering for sushi the last night at the Tokyo Grill. While on our trip my little six month old baby started grabbing things trying to pull up 😳 stop it, you just started crawling like two weeks ago. Getting real tired of this babies growing up thing, I just want them to stay small, sweet, and innocent forever.
We made it home just in time to unpack and make it to the school for Logan’s second grade orientation 🍎📚 his teacher this year was actually Cliff’s second grade teacher also ☺️ thankfully she loved ol’ Clifford 🙌🏻
Happy last few days of summer break everyone ✌🏻️☀️
