First vacation as a family.
This month's entry is going to be a little different. Currently I am starting the post before the activity I hope to write about actually occurs. In a few weeks time my husband, child and I are embarking on our first family vacation.
After months and months of staring at the same ''four walls'' - I need this! For some reason (money) I have been obsessing (insanity) with the idea of going camping (damn you Pinterest).
So we're renting a car, renting a pod & heading up slightly North to Essex.
We did it! (Not sure how).
Peaches behaved pretty well for the long car trips (thank you baby snacks).
She slept well in her travel cot (we stuck to her usual routines as much as possible).
She loved the outdoors (we let her explore the new terrain).
We loved having a car for a change (hello independence)!
It was great cooking out for ever dinner (just the two of us).
Being mostly technology free was refreshing (reconnecting as a couple with no distractions).
The wider open spaces of the countryside was such a refreshing change of scenery (Essex is very lovely). This was the first time in months that we were able to spend more than just week-nights and weekends as a family together.
Could not have asked for more!
Future vacations have a lot to live up to.
Not an instructional blog but the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth - so help me Mom.
