We survived our first weekend trip. In fact, we more than survived. We enjoyed our trip. We had fun. And the tears were kept to a minimum. And despite the amount of noises, smells, wide open spaces, and people, everyone kept it together.
We were able to carve out some really good bonding. Activities like playing "gotcha" in the pool help us teach the kids we are safe. It teaches them we are paying attention to them and trying to keep them safe. There was lots of hand holding and "good" touch. And lots and lots of giggles.
We had a Disney dance party last night. Watched the Blackhawks win two games this weekend and celebrated a birthday.
