For a whole week.
I had no cell phone reception, and no internet.
I thought it would be fabulous and all "getting back to nature" and such. I thought it would be refreshing...nope it wasn't. I was bored silly.
We went on vacation with Hubby's family to Maine. To like the middle of NOWHERE Maine. It took us 12 hours to get there. Yeah-TWELVE hours in the car with toddler...so not on my list of things to ever do again.
Turns out there's also not anything for a 6 month prego woman and with a two year old strapped to her leg, to do in Maine. Hiking...nope. Quaint little town with lots of shops that have breakable items..nope. Kayaking...nope.
I brought three books. I finished them all within two days of arrival.
There was water...but W actually didn't want to go IN the "wa". He just wanted to throw rocks in or ride in the "butt" (AKA the boat/kayak-thank you Finding Nemo for that hilarious tidbit). So there was much just chasing of toddler up the hill to the house, down the hill to the water...sit for 10 minutes while toddler throws rocks in the water..run back up the hill as toddler goes in the house....keep toddler from destroying all the electronics and personal belongings of Uncles, Aunt and Grandparents. lather, rinse repeat!
While it wasn't the super duperest vacation for me ever, W and Hubby enjoyed it, which makes me happy. Following are photos from our week. Notice how I'm wearing a cardigan and sweats in some..yeah the weather was fab up there. I'd like to put it in my pocket and bring it back down here.
But it's oh so cool in a can.
So they fell asleep on a bench waiting for dinner.
Trying to get a toddler that's already not a napper to take one on vacation in a strange house is...impossible. Turns out when he's tired enough, W will put himself down for a nap...wherever he is when the moment strikes. We found him on the chair, and took care to move him to the couch....a little while later we found on the floor under the couch. Apparently my child doesn't want to be comfortable.
Token Happy Family shot. Don't I look thrilled? I was starving outta my mind in this picture.
I seriously wanted to BITE someone.
I'm so glad to be home, and able to blog again.
