Ben's Perfect Vacation Day vs. Mommy's

Greeting from sunny Florida. After a marathon 13 hour trip down on Sat we are livin' large with the in-laws at their home in Destin. A big picture post is coming once we get home, but I couldn't resist a check-in post. Plus I promised Bill tonight I would share some photos from our super, awesome day.

Today HAS to be Ben's perfect vacation day:

Trip to the Alys beach playground
Breakfast by the pool
Local shopping center had a bunch of inflatables,carousel, and a train operating for spring break (do drunken teens really WANT a rock wall I pondered)
Lunch of 5 guys burgers and fries, and ice cream for dessert
Got a monster truck from uncle jamie
Had an easter egg hunt in the front yard
Ate a chocolate truck for dessert
Played with mommy's car flashlight (bribery to stay in my sleeping bag)

By comparison, Mommy's perfect day was not similar in ANY way except one...she got to spend it with Ben! While he was taking a nap she escaped to Rosemary Beach to this little wine/cheese bar she discovered the last day here in August and swore to return to... alone.

Mommy had her favorite meal in the world... a cheese plate and a glass of Riesling while she read yet another book by Augusten Burroughs. Too bad no one could fully appreciate her laughing out loud at his recount of attending Barbazon School of Modeling. She then took a really long walk on the beach and then drove home with music blaring out of her car with all the windows down. She is about to get in the hot tub with a drink and a box of girl scout cookies.

It's official folks, we are on vacation....

I'm glad you're both having a good time! Looking forward to you two coming home later this week, but in the meantime, enjoy the vacation!

A cheese plate and a glass of wine sounds like absolute heaven!
