Back From Vacation

Okay, so I haven’t been on vacation for the last six weeks, even though it was the last time I blogged, whoops. But a six week vacation would have been nice. That’s okay, a weekend outside of San Antonio was still a pretty great family get away.

We are all ready to go!

This is the face of a very disappointing Josh upon realizing what a pecan log actually is. He was hoping it was the inside of a pecan pie in log form. Whomp whomp.

It’s entirely possible I ate those until I got sick.

Tired girls waiting for check-in.

One tired girl and one Beans testing out the balcony.

Few things are better than beds that require a running start to get into.

The sun’s awake, so I’m awake!

What a gorgeous morning, one that we could actually enjoy because it wasn’t 90* and 97% humidity at 8:00 a.m.!

Vacation ritual – breakfast on the balcony.

Vacation ritual – pretending that is coffee.

Vacation ritual – Josh’s morning run to Starbucks and knitting.

If not the Loch Ness, a close cousin for sure.

Ready to hit the water! All 3.89 of us.

Lunch time! One of the great things about where we stayed was you could bring your own food in or order poolside. We didn’t want to pay $12 for a kid’s PB&J so that worked out perfectly. Pack a picnic for the kids and the grownups get waited on 🙂

The very definition of vacation, a poolside nap.

We spent five hours poolside and they still had energy for an hours worth of coloring.

You are d.o.n.e being pregnant when you’ve outgrown a restaurant’s booth.

Family portrait time.

Nightly s’mores.

Nightly Beans high on s’mores.

Starbucks oatmeal counts as breakfast in bed, right? Especially when the kids are still asleep at 8:00 a.m.!

Which never lasts as long as you’d like 🙂

More breakfast on the balcony.

Ready for another full day at the pool.

We didn’t let the fact that it was raining stop us. Although it apparently kept everyone else inside.

This crazy child loves her cheetos.

Post lunch sleepies. Plus, they kept saying they were cold.

A more proper nap.

So she has energy for crazy time with daddy!

Then back to the water!

Lazy rivers are awesome.

Almost as awesome is pizza for dinner while you watch a movie at 9 p.m.!

Our turn at balcony dining.

Pre-bedtime snuggles.

What happens when big sister falls asleep before little sister…

One last balcony breakfast.

And a special Father’s Day message!

I’m pretty sure she grew into a big girl on this trip.

And of course, we couldn’t leave without remembering the Alamo.

Or the “Alabamo” as my southern fried girls called it.

It was a great trip and a really wonderful way to celebrate the last days of us being a family of four. Baby brother is due to arrive ten days from now and I have a feeling we won’t be having quite such peaceful and relaxing vacations for some time now!
