With my husbands job it is really hard to get time off, but he was able to somehow get a few days after I convinced him to take me on vacation to his parents. So to Texas we went!
It was baby Max’s first time on a plane and he did great! He slept both during take off and landing. The girls had a blast getting to take a trip on a plane instead of the usual car ride.
While being around family the husband and I took advantage of it. The girls and baby Max had a sleepover with their cousins while he and I spent the night in San Antonio on the Riverwalk. We got to meet up with some long time friends and enjoy the evening kid free.
I was so excited the next morning to get back to baby Max, so when I saw him and got no special reaction I was a bit disappointed. My husband had to remind me that he is only four months old and is not the best at showing emotion, which of course I know, but my silly mom hormones wanted smiles and hugs.
The next couple of days were spent just letting the girls enjoy time with their cousins and celebrating Independence Day.
The day before we left we took the kids to downtown San Antonio to the Alamo and the Guinness World Records museum. The girls loved it! It was very hands on and had lots for them to do. While walking around in the heat we had the girls wearing their camelbaks. It’s a great way for them to stay hydrated and they do not mind wearing the backpack to hold water, but you know if they had water bottles I would be carrying them on top of Mr. Max and the diaper bag. So many people noticed and commented on what a great idea the camelbaks were, you never think to have your kids just wear a water source around town! Usually they are used for hiking but they are best for even around town!
That was pretty much it! By day six we were all ready to head home and be back to our stuff and our routine. The girls were so happy to be back to mom’s way of making food. You would be surprised how good your kids will eat mom’s cooking when they don’t have it for awhile. ;p
Hope you all had a great Independence Day! Now it is time to start getting ready for back to school! My kids start back in the beginning of August!
