Besides swimming, we did some other fun stuff, like eating. We went out to dinner each night (we brought food for breakfast and lunch), and had a quest to find the perfect chocolate cake. Well from the 3 places we went (Joe's Crab Shack, Ikea, and Claimjumper), the super Claimjumper cake WON. Of course, Liz spent the night throwing up the Claimjumper cake....but what can I say, it was pretty rich.
We also were able to do a 2 for 1 deal, and go to the temple while we were in town (saving us another trip this month). It was Denise's birthday on Saturday, so we celebrated together on Friday by some fun temple time, Ikea shopping, and dinner. Our kids loved having the chance to spend some time with their cousins, and I always love spending time with Denise and Seth.
All in all, our vacation rocked. I loved it. I loved the freedom it afforded me. I loved it wasn't too far away. I loved spending time with my little family (minus the much missed Madeline). I loved that the kids got along the whole trip (seriously amazing). I loved that Bj and I stayed up all night talking. Oh, and we can't forget the chocolate cake. Another plus....I know you wanted to know this little tidbit, I didn't even gain weight. ROCK ON!
