Fun Times!

Well, I thought I'd tell you what we have been up to the past couple of weeks. Mike attended a conference in Atlanta so I decided to go away with my friend Kim for a few days. It was lots of fun! We went to Myrtle Beach and it was one crazy trip. We had four kids under three in her minivan. It was full with luggage, pack n plays, carseats, diaper bags, dvd player (Praise God!), and happy kids (ha ha)! So we get there at midnight on Sunday. It took us a little longer to pack the car, unload the car etc...The kids survived and we went to sleep that night excited for the next day. Well, it was of course crazy weather. It was a typical cold, windy east coast day. We tried the beach and it lasted for about 10 minutes. Even though it would take us 30 minutes to get anywhere. We had a double stroller, single stroller, and Anna in the Baby Bjorn carrier. It was so windy that all the kids cried because sand got in their eyes. We then tried the indoor pool which was a big hit! Ellie loved the water and wanted to get out of my arms so bad. It was then naptime which was great for Kim and I! It was a crazy couple of days, but really fun to get away with another mom of two! It was kind of empowering knowing that we could do all this by ourselves... although I'm not sure if I would want to do it again anytime soon. The last picture is of Ellie with her new play kitchen that Mimi got her! She loves it. She was so excited the night we got it for her she ended up playing with it till 10:00 that night. I am going to look for some play food this weekend at a neighborhood garage sale. Anyways, hope everyone is doing great! Post comments so I know someone is reading this blog!

So Cute! Say hi to Kim and John Hurley for us!! There kids are adorable, of course. Sounds like you and Kim were two brave moms! I laughed at your story of getting to the beach and then turning around to leave! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time, but still hilarious!
