For the first time ever, I rented a house on the coast for a family weekend and it was a hit! It's officially been decided that this will become an annual "thing" we will do.
Mind you, the trip still came with it's quirks. The kiddos had their normal quibbles, I drank too much coffee and wine (not together) and mom managed to repeatedly use the word masturbate at the Aquarium. Mortifying. But overall, it was a trip full of laughter and love.
I am already looking forward to next year's trip!
