Staycation - Day 1

We decided to take a staycation this year.  We're going on a bigger vacation with Aaron's side of the family later in the summer, but we still wanted to do something with just the 8 of us.    We're going to spend the next five days doing various day excursions ... and ending the day by sleeping in our own beds!

Today, we started the day with cartoons in Mom and Dad's bed.  All of us (except Alex, who I had just gotten back to sleep) squeezed into our bed and enjoyed a few shows.  Sundays are usually crazy at our house, so it was nice to just be able to relax.

Then, we went out for brunch.

I wanted to take a picture of the kids at a rose garden (I know ...  it's probably too late for most of the roses) and Aaron said he knew just where it was.   He didn't.   So, we skipped  that part of our day and may be able to do it later in the week.

I did get a great shot of all six of them, though!

Then, we played some frisbee golf.   We are not any good, but most of us had a lot of fun.   We didn't do the whole course because Sarah and Alex were not happy.

Then we played at the playground.

We got ice cream on our way home, then spent the afternoon relaxing at home.  Tonight we're going to see Cars 2 at the drive-in theater.  None of us have ever been to a drive-in ... we're hoping it's as fun as it seems!


  1. Have fun at the drive in! (I think we are going tomorrow night!!) (if it's a nightmare give me a heads up!) =)

  2. That's a great picture of all the kids! Alex is getting so big!


Let me know what you're thinking!!
