Weekend Get-A-Way

Last weekend, we decided it was time for a bit of vacation. We gathered up a couple of our besties and headed for the mountains.

Somehow, with the addition of little Briggs, this vacation did not seem quite like an actual vacation. So, let's call it a "get-a-way" instead. I refuse to believe that this is what vacation will be like for the rest of my life.
While there were no leisurely breakfasts or mornings of late sleep, there was still plenty of time for pajama lounging and baby snuggling.
And during nap time, there were games, and yummy drinks, and general carryings on. Em and I carved out a bit of kid-less hot tub time too. Thank.Goodness.For.That.
In the afternoons, we bundled up the babes and headed out to check out the nearby tourist spots.
Which, sadly, were in the middle of the off-season and strangely deserted. We did see Lindsey Vonn shooting some kind of promotional video though. If that video ever gets produced, we will be the ONLY people in the background, so keep your eyes peeled.
We also found ducks and plenty of space for the tots to wander - two big wins as far as the littles were concerned. I swear they could have stared at those ducks all day.
It's really hard to NOT enjoy a weekend in the mountains with friends. However, we took a vote and it was unanimously agreed upon that the babies are not invited next year. I think they'll be okay with that - grandma's house is more fun anyway.

That sounds like every vacation I've had for the last 7 years. Don't worry, you get used to it and you'll probably learn to love it! Welcome to the dark side, my friend! :)
