climbing the walls.
You know, out here in the kinda country we have to get creative and think about ways to entertain ourselves. Zoos? For wimps. Museums? Cultural snobs. Movies? C'mon.... Is that all ya got?
Walls. My son looks at the bathroom doorway and thinks "I can take it." And he does. Everyday. All day. My son is literally climbing the walls.
What's a mama to do? We're getting out of Dodge for a few days and heading to the lake, that's what. I love saying that. We're going to the lake this weekend. We've always talked about finding a great lake nearby and spending weekends/weeks lounging about. I've always envied those families who were able to take off to their vacation house or their parent's vacation house on a regular basis. But the reality we lived in didn't allow it. We were broke and had no down-time due to BigDaddy's job(s). And no parents with a vacation house. My Loyal 7 know this has been a big goal for us, to have some balance, and be able to do things as a family like a vacation. It was a big focus for us before we moved here. It's a big reason WHY we moved here.
So we're off. No computers allowed, no tweets or status updates, no emails. Sunscreen, princess beach towels, watermelon and grilled burgers? Definitely.
