I'm dreaming of vacation. ..

This year we've planned out a fun filled vacation for our little family of 4. We plan on visiting as usual but our girls are older and spending our family vacation sitting on ppls sofas doesn't sound like fun when you think about it.

We are always so busy working and trying to get through our day. This year we plan on slowing down, sleeping, letting the girls really explore and play.

I'm thinking of dipping our toes in the Roubideux. A river so clear you can see the bottom. We did it last year as an after thought and it was a little too cool because it was dark.

An overnight trip to St. Louis. We are heading out early to see a Cardinals game. Donald is really excited to do this. Katie is too. Karly and I are thinking "July. In Missouri. In a packed stadium. During the day." Yeeeeeaaaaah :)

Also during our trip to St. Louis we will be taking the girls to the St. Louis Zoo. It's a pretty big zoo. My mom and sister and maybe some other family are meeting us up there. Other than parking, it's free. Can't beat free.

Our Family reunion. Everyone agreed to change it so we could attend. That was very thoughtful of them. I haven't been to a reunion in years.

The girls Birthday party :) I can't believe they are turning 4. How in the world did that happen?

The incredible pizza place. Nuff said :) We love that place. We are meeting my dad there to celebrate the girls' birthday with him since he doesn't do anything family related.

Anyway that's 2 weeks of awesomeness.

In other news, I went to get a mani today and I asked my mother in law to watch the girls. Well I'm pretty sure my parenting skills won't be getting judged anytime soon :)

Karlys been having this issue of screaming when she gets embarrassed, is tired, can't get what she wants etc. Donald and I ignore her. We will walk over her and leave the room if needed. We will not feed in to it or try to stop her. It only gets worse when we do. We get judged each time.

Wellll today Karly did this to my mother in law for the first time and mother in law wasn't happy. So I politely said "Now you know it's not us and why we ignore her" she replied with "that's terrible" Am I wrong? Thought not.

Happy Easter :)

Sounds like a blast! I hope you all 4 enjoy your amazing vacation!

I can't believe they will be 4! I have been reading since you were just recently pregnant with them! Lordy does the time fly!
