Vacation Is Exhausting

We arrived back home from our one week vacation on Saturday and this mama is still trying to recover. With four young children, vacation consists of very little relaxing and a whole lot of craziness. The six year old and four year old's were actually pretty good. They listened on the beach and didn't stray from our sides. However the 20 month old is a totally different story. He spent the majority of his time running up and down and back and forth on the beach, chasing seagulls, running on the beach, stealing other kids toys, running on the beach and destroying all sand castles in a one mile radius.

Did I mention running around the beach?

Taking a stroll with daddy.

The first three days of our trip were rainy wash outs but the last thee days were sunny. By the third day on the beach my husband and I had divided up the beach into two zones. The front half of the beach, from our "campsite" to the water was his to cover. And the back half was mine. It didn't really matter, he was all over the darn place.

On Saturday when we got home I actually went to bed at 8:30pm out of pure exhaustion. I am still working on feeling normal again. We did have a great time though and the boys loved it all. But now it is good to be back home and sleeping in my own bed.

I look forward to the days where I can actually sit for more than 30 seconds at a time on the beach. Fingers crossed for next year!
