We Vacatin!

Hey y’all!

I may have forgotten to mention that we are on vacation this week, oops.

We’re actually just down in Nokomis and Englewood because a large portion of our families are in town.  Both brothers and their families and also I have a cousin and his lovely wife in town and also my Mom.

I’ve been hanging out with Thing 1 and 2 this week and loving it.

Here’s Thing 2 in the pool last night with my brothers niece.

I’m pretty sure they swam themselves into a coma.

Over the weekend Thing 2 and I were shopping and she wanted me to buy her a fish.  The conversation went something like this:

Thing 2:  Can you buy me a fish please?

Me:  I would love to buy you a fish but you would have a hard time getting it back to Virginia with you and your Mom and Dad would probably say no.

Thing 2:  That’s okay when I leave you can keep it for me.

Me:  I would love to but I already have 2 dogs and 2 birds and a big MacGyver to take care of.

Thing 2:  I know.  That’s a lot of things to be responsible for you but if it dies, just face time me for the funeral.

I swear! Out of the mouths of babes.

Today MacGyver and I have planned a big cookout and if all totals are correct, there will be 13 people, 2 dogs and 2 birds at my house this afternoon.  And except for the ones swimming in the canal, no fish.  I’ll update more tomorrow but for now, I have a party to get ready for!

When is the last time you went on vacation?  Where’d you go?

  1. My last vacation was independence day last year, next one is coming up for the solar eclipse (these are long weekend family vacations). Then at the end if September I’ll think I’ll go on another trip on my own.

    Have you been to Myakka River SP? It’s featured on bing home page (I like bing for this reason)

    Have a great time!

    • It seems like we take a lot of them but I swear we don’t. we just spend a lot of time at our vacation house and take the occasional trip to Virginia or Tennessee. I would love to go somewhere like Prague or Peru but we’re boring, and cheap, ha! I have been to the Myakka River many times, it’s lovely and the pictures on Bing ARE awesome 😉

      • Prague is nice! You should definitely go (haven’t been to Peru yet). Norwegian Shuttle has cheap tickets to Europe. When I was there it was May Day weekend (so May first) and there was a marathon that weekend. You could do it 🙂
