My friend and coworker Deborah and her family went on vacation to the same resort Kiki and I took the boys to, two and four years ago. So I said I’d drive up for the night with the boys and hang out.
I got a free hotel room using rewards points, and Saturday morning, Oliver, Miles, and I hit the road. (Linus didn’t want to be in a car for that long, so he got plenty of quality time with Daddy and Ziggy.)
We got there in the early afternoon and swam and floated and ate and drank and swam some more until the evening, when the boys and I drove five minutes down the road to our hotel. We snuggled in bed and watched House Hunters Renovations and all konked out after our busy day. We hit the beach on Sunday morning, and spent a little more time in the pools, and then it was time to go home.
A short trip, but a really nice one! Next year, we definitely need to go longer!
I understand Linus wanting to stay home, but I wish he’d come. I’m in love with these pictures of Oliver and Miles. 😍 Really wish I had one of my green-haired boy!
And some more random pics taken with my phone:

One last pic at the Caribe before heading home.
While George and I were off gallivanting across Merry Olde England, the boys were spending plenty of Quality Time with their maternal grandparents.
I don’t know everything they did, but here’s what I do know:
They took a yo-yo class:
They went to the beach, where they swam in a pool:
They visited a naval museum:
And ate the kinds of food only a grandparent can guiltlessly provide:
I know they went fishing and walked on the beach but I don’t have photos for those. I know they had a great time.
I also know, poor things, didn’t have enough clothes and were apparently dressed like orphans because their terrible mama doesn’t know how to pack a suitcase. Apparently. I don’t know how they all survived. I really need to up my organization game.
I also assume an Oreo commercial is in the pipeline. Nabisco! Gimme a call!
