Staycation, All I Ever Wanted

This song has been stuck in my head for the last seven days.

I just had 4 days away from work (plus the long weekend)!! And while it managed to be a very productive vacation (massive house cleaning, general purging, splitting and stacking wood, etc.) we had a real vacation in there too!

The boys had their daycare all day end of summer pool party on Friday. We went to the beach three times! The weather was perfect! Had a bonfire and toasted marshmallows. Road bikes. Fed ducks. Played at several playgrounds. Had friends over for a BBQ. The boys were well behaved and so much fun! We had some very wonderful family time that we'll remember for a long time to come.

But now it's back to work and a week's worth of digging out. September already. sigh

It's so nice to have a vacation AND get some things accomplished!!

Sounds like a great time. I'm especially envious of the beach. We usually do a "staycation" in August but opted for May this year. I'm missing the August time to relax, recharge (and fully clean house).

Why does the fun always have to end. Sounds like a great time.

I love time off with my family! Going to my moms put a cramp on what we could do the rest of the summer. We haven't been to storyland this year. Have you been to Santa's Village? Or whatever it's called. We haven't ever been. I'm glad you had a nice time. What beach do you go to?
