Thank goodness for the grandparents on all accounts- but especially when they spring you with: "were thinkin of renting a villa in kauaii and would love to bring you guys along". Dead of winter. Sunshine. Maitai's. Blue water. Kinda broke. Free babysitting. Solo day at the spa. Golfin fo rthe boys. Quality time with the fam. YES PLEASE!
Even though it is has been the furthest thing from a slow winter for work, it was so nice to get away into flipflops and skimpies. It was our first adventure on an airplane with a toddler, aside from quick jaunts to california. 2 yr olds and connecting flights aren't the funnest thing. But once you get to the beach it all washes away. Thank you mom and dad for such an amazing getaway to paradise.
