Waverly was so happy about it, she kept asking when we were leaving on our “field trip”, and tried to pack her bag at least three days before we left. It’s about a six hour drive, and we decided on leaving at 1 in the morning so the girls would sleep through it and my dad (who was driving) could get still some sleep before we get there, and of course that totally backfired on us. The girls were both way too excited to get any sleep, so they pretty much stayed up throughout the night, which in turn meant we did, too! 😉 Thankfully on the way back, when we left at 7pm and tried to do the same thing, they were completely exhausted and were out before we even left the resort parking lot. I’m convinced we will be feeling the effects of this trip for at least another week, but it was so worth it!!!! Vacation memories are some of the very best, both girls were just in awe of everything they saw and just high on life that we left any sort of routine back at home. My most favorite part was watching their excitement and their happiness was contagious — of course mixed in with a few meltdowns, too.
PS – I haven’t read a book in forever, but took this one with me on the trip and got through over half of it, EVERY MOM MUST GET THIS!!!! It is absolutely amazing, so inspiring, and there is just so much to relate to. I can’t say enough about it, I actually plan to re-read it a few times!
