We are going on VACATION! VACATION PEOPLE! We are going to St. John with my Dad, Step Mom and little brother. I grew up on the East Coast so going to the Caribbean was part of the vacation schedule if we were lucky. I've been went to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. Barths, St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos, and Abacos Island. Lucky? Yes. Spoiled? Yes. Grateful? YES!
I haven't been to the Caribbean in a looong time. Thanks to my Dad we are going for a glorious 7 days. First we'll fly to his house in Virginia and then to St. John the following day.
I'll be eating here:
We need this. Hubby has been working so hard and we dodged the "Lupus bullet". We need to relax and remember that life is about being with people you love. Life is for living. Celebrating. That's what we're going to do. Next week I will do a few posts about traveling and all the short cuts I'm doing. Traveling with a toddler is no joke. You have to be on your game or you will pay. I am ready!!! Bring it on Landon!
If your kids are dying to have a "sleep over" but are too young, try having a pretend one. Invite the friend over and leave the kids with a baby sitter while you and the parents go out for dinner. Let the kids have their sleeping bags and PJ's and go to sleep. When they wake up in the morning asking where their friend is, say they just left!
