It was an eventful 5 days though! His mom was soooo excited to see us sitting in her mothers living room on a Tuesday afternoon. This day also happened to be her sons birthday, so it was a little extra oomph. Yes my sweet hubby decided to spend a whole day traveling with his family for his birthday. We were up at 4:45, on a plane at 6:30 with a 2 hour flight and a 2 hour drive all to see his mommy and he loved every minute of it! The kids did too. It was their first time traveling and flying on a plane. So they took in every moment of it and they did awesome!!! We were so proud of them.
We spent 3 days at 2 different beaches and only had one incident......Jaxson got stung by a jellyfish on day two. Yea, we didn't think we were ever gonna get the poor kid back into any sort of water ever again. It was very traumatic for a 5 year old! But....he did go back in on day three and he had a blast. Luckily there was no sign of the oil spill. I just wasn't expecting the water to be so murky. It was fun though, I loved watching the kids find seashells, play in the sand and marvel at the waves.
It was a great week visiting with Grandma and all of the other family but it was also nice to get back home. Why is it that you feel like you need a vacation from your vacation???
