Thanks, Piob! It really was great.
sounds great, G. glad you all had a great time.
funny you should say that about your vacay, as this year is the first time we have a vacay planned that will just be for the wife and i with the kids. we always go away in the summer with other family members, and i have been kinda afraid that it wont be the same without the usual suspects.
going to a new vacay spot that we have never been to and dont know that lay of the land. no cousins for our kids to play with and no other adults for my wife and i to hang with. sometimes activities are not quite the same when its just a few people.
im not saying that am not excited about being with my family, but its not the standard for our vacations, and with change the outcome is always questionable. you have given me hope though that i too can have a successful vacay. thanks!
It was great, thanks. I wish I were still there!
I'm really glad we did the trip with just our nuclear family. It's nice to see everyone when we do the big trips, but it also gets tiresome dealing with all of the personalities, different preferences, etc. of extended family. It might just be my family, but it often felt to me like there was as much stress as enjoyment on those big trips. This afforded us the chance to avoid all of that hassle and just do whatever we wanted, and I felt like I got to spend time with my wife and son in a way that wasn't possible when there was a big group around.
I had a great weekend, too. I love the summer weekends, nothing too special going on. hung out with a dad and drank beer and smoked cigars while I kids had a playdate, dinner with some friends, walked to the library and had icecream with the kids. nothing earth shattering but a lot of fun
It was, for sure!
Sounds like your weekend was awesome. Those weekends where you have stuff to do but aren't booked solid are the best, especially in the summertime.
Thanks! Definitely my type of vacation, too!
