Long Weekend Away

There has been a lot of activity in our household since I last wrote.
Let me begin with Thursday morning when both Tim and I came down with our second stomach bug of the season.
Let me tell you how much I love stomach bugs while pregnant.
Probably as much as I love having staples stapled into my toenails slowly for days on end.
A bit dramatic . . .
But true all the same.
We were supposed to leave that night for our long weekend in Naples with my family.
I didn't feel up to it, but Tim felt better by the evening . . . so off we went.
We got to wake up in our hotel on Friday morning feeling better and ready to take on the rainy forecast.

After breakfast we went on a walk to check out all the fun things our hotel had to offer.

One of our first stops was to visit Papou at his "meeting," which is the reason we were all there.

We walked around some more and had fun on the couches in the lobby.

After the couch playtime we sat at the front of the hotel and enjoyed a few free apples.

After all my worrying about the weather it ended up being beautiful all weekend.

Didn't rain a drop.

Answer to my prayers . . . thanks, God.

After our exploring we took the kids to the pool for a little while.

They had a blast.

For dinner that night we went to a place that served whole lobsters.

Of course my dad and Timothy decided to partake in that special.

On Saturday we spent the morning and lunchtime by the beach and pool.

It was blissful.

We had a nice nap, and then the boys went to the gameroom in the hotel.

George was in Heaven with all the game systems and tvs in one room.

We had sushi in the hotel for dinner that night.

On Sunday we checked out . . . all sad to go home.

But we did get to stop at an awesome outlet mall on the way home, which made the transition a bit easier.

All in all we had a great short vacation, and I am so thankful for the gorgeous weather and the fun time with my family.
