a weekend away
We went away to visit Ben's mom in CT this weekend. It was our first hotel stay in a while, and Pupper was super excited for the trip. The boy loves hotels -- a cord phone to play with, a miniature fridge and microwave, a huge bed to sleep in -- those are the makings of a luxury vacation to a three year old.
1. packing helpers
2. i've learned that the key to a successful hotel stay with tiny people in tow is plenty of nutritious snacks (my pups need their breakfast straight away and mini muffins from the continental breakfast don't really make for the best morning). the 7am feast: nuts, popcorn, apple, carrot, and pepper slices, cheese cubes, Kix, a banana, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
3. bob transplanting a bush
4. grandma's playground
5. lunch from a puppy bowl
6. cuteness of hotel bed sharing = worth the lost sleep
7. sand + water table = filthy but happy boys
8. hamburger + fries + fruit = slightly less filthy but just as happy boys
9+10. napping on the drive home
11. me + my love
Here's to a successful weekend away and seeing people we love!
