|The girls in the jacuzzi tub in our room|
When the girls awoke on Friday we told them we were taking them on a mystery ride. The girls were immediately ecstatic and couldn't stop talking about where we were going. They didn't know we would be spending the night (since we packed the car the night before) so their guesses were things like the beach, the park and other "simple" places like that. After we had breakfast and got dressed, we put everyone in the car and headed on our Mystery ride to North Conway. Multiple times throughout our drive, the girls would ask where we were going - we'd just laugh and say "you'll see!" - As we got closer and could see mountains, Mairead says "This reminds of me North Conway!" - what a smart girl, but she still didn't have a clue as to where we were going!

We swam.......and swam........ate pizza. Shopped. Played on the playground. Went out to dinner. Went out to lunch. And swam some more. Shopped some more. Played some more. The big girls did amazing with swimming - they are fishes! Clara did awesome in the pool, too! She was jumping in and Kevin would dunk her under water and she loved it! Callum, of course, did amazing. He slept. Really, he's so good. He'd wake to nurse, and then go back to sleep. It was great because we were able to spend a lot of quality time with the girls.
|I can't believe how "Big" Clara looks here!!!|
It was a much needed quick trip to spend with the girls. It was great to get away and just have fun. Even though we were gone for just one night, it was the perfect trip to decompress a bit. Watching the girls smile, laugh and just have fun was awesome.
