First, traveling with four kids is hard. When I say hard, that’s putting it lightly. The baby has a sinus infection accompanied by a double ear infection. It has been very challenging. He’s back on antibiotics and is finally starting to feel better. It’s so terrible when he hurts because having no words means he has trouble expressing to us what is wrong. It is very hard for me, but we are doing our best.
When we got to the beach and into our first day, my husband was the cranky one, not me. Go figure. He doesn’t like when they kids get all fussy on vacation because he feels it should be a time for fun and relaxing. I wish I could get through to him that there is nothing relaxing about a vacation with four kids!
Anyway, last night we escaped for an hour to have an appetizer and a beer for happy hour. That was really nice. We also did a little event called MagiQuest, wow, how exhausting! This thing lasted an hour and a half, running around finding different things with a stupid wand. Taking a 2 ½ year old to something like that – not (and I repeat) NOT a good idea. Trust me.
By the time we got back to the condo we were all so wiped out that everyone crashed pretty hard. I will say it was probably the best night sleep I’ve had in a while. The kids were so exhausted we didn’t have anyone fussing, or creeping into our room, or waking us up at the crack of dawn. Ahhh.
