I Need A Vacation!

I got a nice break from reality this past weekend.  We were invited by Emmy and her family to their time share.  We all had a blast swimming, laughing, eating and swimming, laughing and eating.  It was great just to hang out, float in the water, watch my kids splash and have fun.  

Kristin took some lessons from Rich on swimming.  He was on the swim team in high school.  Who better to learn from??  Certainly not me.  I am a terrible swimmer.  I still hold my nose.   I couldn't believe the progress she made.  Give her a nose plug and regular goggles and she will make the swim team in high school!

Emily was braving practically the whole pool.  It only went to five feet in the very middle of the pool.  She was wandering all over the place.  She treads water pretty good now.  If you get to close to her though, she backs away.  Don't get too close.  

Ryan...oh Ryan.  You and water!  I mean seriously boy. He was happily playing on the steps of the pool.  Then he went off the last step, which meant it was nearly over his head.  Luckily, I was right there.  Next day, we made sure he was wearing his life vest suit.  He wasn't going to go in the lazy river or the pool.  He went in the lazy river twice and Eric got him out in the pool.  It was a miracle!  After that, I taught him how to doggie paddle.  That I can do.  And he was all over the place.  It was loads of fun.

However, I have a question...how come is it when I get back from vacation...I suddenly need a vacation!?

I totally understand! Isn't that weird??? its like you're having so much fun, you need a vacation like spa time or something (wouldn't that be great, spa vacations) to relax from all the stuff you did on vacation! I think tired= fun though!

I've been back from mine for about 4 days and I'm still trying to recover. I think Mom's need an emergency vacation SWAT team to make housecalls and deal with the aftermath.
