Mini Vacation

We have had many plans this year for things we wanted to do. We had romantic getaway plans, which changed, but actually came about! We had family plans, which really got changed, then changed again.
But we decided it was definitely time to have a little un-interrupted family time. So we got on, found a GREAT hotel deal, and took off. On hotwire, you don’t see the name of the hotel until you pay. But it was a four-star in downtown Cincy, so we took it. It turned out to be the Hyatt Regency. It was so nice, and we were really happy with it.
The boys on “their” bed. Yes, I think Jackson is picking his nose.
The boys had never been in a real pool before, just the ones we have bought them from year to year, that you blow up. πŸ™‚ They were so excited!

They were so scared at first. They just wanted to sit on the side. It took us a while to convince them it was fun! After a while, they were jumping in to us. We even let them go under a few times. The loved it!! The boys with Daddy:
Getting ready to check-out of our 21st-floor room. πŸ™‚I had a quick dr. appointment, then on we went to EnterTrainment Junction. It is a neat little place. They have over 2 miles of track, and lots of displays. The boys loved it, but we did lots of holding because they weren’t tall enough to see. πŸ˜‰

My biggest “boy” building “Cranky the Crane”:

They could shovel coal. They LOVED it!

Going on a “Thomas the Train” ride all by themselves! We were so proud of them:

All-in-all a fun adventure. We wouldn’t pay to go often, but it was worth it! πŸ™‚ Our happy family:

We ran by Hobby Lobby so I could get some of those cute little crocheted hats and bows and flowers to clip on them. πŸ™‚ Then, we stopped by Steak-n-Shake before we went home!
We had a terrific time! It’s wonderful to just spend time with our boys. We are so thankful for them. Sometimes life gets busy, and you have to slow down and just “be” together. Happy memories…
