When I first signed up for the blog, I thought for sure I’d be blogging everyday with all the stories or events from the day before. I don’t know how people that blog with kids do it! Life goes by super fast around here, especially with all the sports my boys are in. I was SO thankful that we were able to break away a few weeks ago from our busy schedule and go on a vacation.
If any of you travel with kids and can’t afford to fly (which most of us can’t!!) I strongly suggest traveling long distances in a motorhome. It was awesome. We had our kitchen to make meals or snacks and we could use the bathroom while traveling down the road. That is a life saver for parents with young kids!! We didn’t have to stop for a bathroom break and then travel 10 minutes down the road before someone else realizes that they need to us the bathroom!! After the 3rd or 4th time of that I get super irritated.
We drove down to Gulf Shores, Alabama. If any of you haven’t gone there, you NEED to go!! There are so many things to do with kids down there. The ocean was our top priority, but we really enjoyed touring and sight seeing as well. The USS Alabama in Mobile, Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, and Alligator Alley in Summerdale were our other stops that we LOVED!!
As a mother we want vacations to be fun and packed full of memories with no fighting. HAHA!! Well that is not life, or life with boys anyways!! Apparently a boy (or even a man???) is not happy until they are challenging others. It seems like their testoterone just has to come out to prove they know more than EVERYONE!! I always point out that I have been alive way longer than them, but I’m pretty sure they still think they know more! Haha This vacation was our best one yet. The fun times did outweigh the fighting and arguing, so a mom couldn’t ask for anything better. God has created such a beautiful word and we are so blessed that we get to share it with our children.
