Spring Break Vacation! just the words, bring about excitement! But then add in the fact that you are going with a 7, 6, 5, 4 and 2 year old, and boy the excitement level just rises 100%!!!
For weeks all I would hear was “when is spring break”
And then the week before we left, “how many more sleeps”
Gosh, how I love that innocence.
We had the best time! We didn’t really do anything either. We went to my sister’s time share, and went to an indoor waterpark the 2nd day we were there, then after that, we just hung out.
We had beautiful weather. The girls and boy, were just great and had great attitudes. They had a clubhouse, went hiking, swimming, went to the playground. They went to the beach, and who knows what else!!!
I love vacation with the kids, because I learn so much.
I learned that no matter what, popcorn for supper isn’t going to kill them, nor will jello for breakfast!
But pancakes are the best!! no matter what time of day it is!
I learned that “the little girls” cramp “the big girls” style when “the big girls” just don’t want them around.
I learned that the 5 of them can be no better protectors of each other when one of them is sad because they are too short to go down the medium slide, even if “I’m a year older than her, and it’s not fair”
I learned that a clubhouse CAN be made on the stairs.
I learned that a hot tub, can be a very scary thing to a 2 year old, even if it isn’t on.
I learned that sometimes, just sitting in the dirt and digging with your fingers can be a lot of fun!
I’ve also learned, that is no more time I enjoy more, than being with my grandkids.
Thanks kids for another wonderful vacation! I can’t wait till this summer and we go again. I don’t know where we will go, and it will probably be to the condos again, and probably we will go to the waterpark, and just play in the sun, and hike in the woods, but believe, that the memories you give me, I will hold in my heart forever!
