Family Trip to Florida
We went in March, after a super-busy,
super stressful time at our home.
It was superb. I tell you
spending time with the kids and husband
with no other responsibilities makes me
very happy. Gene asked if I could choose,
would I want to live like that forever, just
lazily getting up in the morning with
nothing to think about but where to go
swimming next, and what kind of food to eat.
I think I hesitated a little long for his liking,
than I said that it’s not a realistic lifestyle for one,
and two I can imagine it would
get unfulfilling eventually. But for
one week out of the year?
A week of Mac n Cheese every night – is this what heaven is like?
Every husbands dream vacation includes family pictures!
Then there is the 20 hour drive home…No judging allowed
unless you’ve survived a trip like that yourself.
Speaking of Momma Mia!
in April flew down to Florida with 5 of my good pals.
The cool part was that our husbands got their
heads together and sent us away. They even said
things like: This is not going to happen for a long
time, so BE GONE! TAKE FIVE DAYS INSTEAD OF FOUR!!
And we said “Done deal, we are outta here!”
And the grandma’s, dads, aunts and cousins all
covered our buns for us, while we tried to tan ours.
We really had a fun wonderful *bonding* time.
The funny thing about this group of girls is that it is
not a natural group. Our husbands were friends before
we were, and we sort of became friends by default. It’s
odd, because I rarely hear of guys that insist on hanging
out together, but these guys did. As they got married over
a span of about five years, we would add a new wife to the
mix. So being friends was not without growing pains,
as some are added and some drop-out.
Having said all that, what started by default ended with
true friendships and I’m not sure what I would do without
these girls. Sniff, sniff..pass the tissues please.
I got a new camera on this trip thats why it looks so amazing.
Kidding! They were taken by talented Shannon
Giddy about being free from responsibilty, and happy with
our urber-dark tans, we take the town on a windy evening.
Happy Weekend everyone!
