Finally, our long-awaited summer vacation arrived!
The days before we left I was super busy. I really wanted to spend those days OFF. So I tried to leave all the work done. There was a lot of cooking, taking pictures, writing, etc. Additionally, all logistical arrangements required to travel with two small children. But all previous madness was worth the trip, and undoubtedly we had some very special family days. The only thing that we were missing was our oldest daughter, Andrea, who could not come because of work.
Our adventure started early. We had to take two flights that would take us to our destination. We were a little nervous because we didn’t know how the kids were going to behave. We were very well prepared, snacks, a change of clothes for everyone, toys, and of course, the iPad with many episodes of the kiddos’ Disney Junior favorites programs: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Callie’s Wild West Sheriff and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. We were concerned for no reason. The children were wonderful, the truth is that we cannot complain!
We arrived at our destination late afternoon …YAY!
Just watching the view – sea, sun and palm trees made us forget how tired we were.
The next day we woke up with recharged batteries. As you can see Victoria even slept with her beach net toy; she didn’t know what it was for, but did not want to let go.
As the sign on Vicky’s hands says: We felt in paradise. Definitely, for us, the words beach and vacation have to go in the same sentence. When I say “we” I mean my husband and I. Victoria in the other hand didn’t like the idea of the sand and the salt water. I think she’s still very little to enjoy to the fullest. Her face says it all LOL.
Matthew has a blast! My little guy ended up being super sociable. Always got someone to play with and/or talk to. The sand was no problem for him and he could spend hours playing and making castles.
The time we spend as a family, not just for holidays, but every day, are invaluable and something very important for me. Often times, the routine, work and worries pushes us away from what is really important, and to me, there is nothing more important than family.
