#72HoursofDaddy: Three Wonderful Days Of Family Time
October 10, 2014
We spent the past three days together as a family and it was amazing! And yes, there were plenty of mini-mommy vacations (and mini-daddy ones, too).
Prior to our mini-family vacation, we researched local dog beaches. We knew Naples, Florida has several dog-friendly beaches and decided that was where we would go. Because it was more than an hour away, we planned an early trip, decided to take our breakfast on-the-go and would grab lunch on our way back.
Below is a rundown of our three days together: Day 1: A Trip To Bonita Springs Although our trip was originally to Bonita Dog Park Beach, we were a little uncomfortable with the location once we arrived and voted it would be best if we just went to a nearby beach. Bonita Dog Park Beach is great if your dog does not mind knee-high water. For us, it was a bit of a challenge to get Rocky through and onto the dog beach.
We drove further into Bonita Springs and found a local beach, parked our car, and laid out our blanket. The breeze was cool, the sun was peaking through the clouds, and our boys loved every minute of it. Day 2: Laying Low On the second day we stayed home. It was nice to just hang out, watch TV, run errands, and do things around the house — you know, the things adults do on a regular day. 🙂 Sebastian and I even did a little baking. Day 3: A Family Park Day After a relaxing Day 2, wedecided to take a family trip to the park. Jeff was already meeting with his brother to play basketball so we made it into a family trip.
It was nice to step away for a bit, but I really missed them while I was gone. I loved coming home and seeing the boys had fun. There was a trail of things leading to the bedroom. I could not help but laugh at seeing Sebastian still wearing his sneakers we bought him earlier.
Before Jeff headed to work this afternoon, we spent our morning in the pool. I got a little teary-eyed knowing that our mini-family vacation had come to an end, but it was fun. These are the memories we will cherish forever.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week. Hello, weekend! <3
