"Mini-Vacation"

This past weekend we had the privilege of going on a "mini-vacation" (as coined by the girls) to the mountains in north jersey with Brian's parents and brother. The girls have been very excited about our getaway and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately the weather did not want to cooperate for the first day so instead of hiking and enjoying the outdoors we spent the day swimming! (And let me tell you... I think swimming was the better way to go for our girls!) The had a blast. The heated indoor pool went right outside so we got to swim in the pouring rain. So cool!

The house Brian's parents rented came complete with a home theater. NOT just a big screen TV but a HOME THEATER! So impressive.

The second day of our trip allowed us to get outdoors more. Brian's Mom suggested a local zoo and that was a complete hit. It was half zoo and half museum (old cars, old tools, and other misc. neat things) so both adults and children alike had fun.

We spent a lot of our weekend enjoying the home theater. Those who know me well know that I am NOT a movie or tv person but even I enjoyed TWO MOVIES in one weekend (:D). I loved Limitless and HATED The 3:10 to Yuma.

The evening of the second day showed us the absolute beauty of being in the mountains. It was spectacular to see in person.

The best part of the trip was getting to spend some time with our family. Seems like with so many schedules and so much going on it's hard to find enough time to just sit and enjoy each other's company. This weekend was full of wonderful conversations and plenty of time to catch up. Just perfect!!!

Last thing... on the drive to the house I saw a black bear in someone's yard!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
