1. I am getting a chance to rest and relax, which wasn't what I expected for a vacation with a toddler.
2. Faith is getting incredibly spoiled.
|Guess who is center of attention?|
My ribs are actually feeling better, which is really exciting for me. I can even touch my side without wincing and breathing is much less painful. It must be the combination of resting from activity and not carrying Faith nearly as much as I do at home. My pipe dream of coming home healed may not be so crazy after all!
Being at the beach in the fall is pretty awesome. First of all, it's not crowded at all and the weather is amazing. The high every day as been 74 degrees with clear blue skies. It's been a little windy, but today was a perfect beach day. Yesterday when it was windy, we went mini golfing instead.
We played 18 holes of mini golf and only one of us got a hole in one...and that person had a plastic club.
|Game on Mommy. I will crush you all!|
|I would have had another hole in one if Uncle Nick didn't insist on "helping" me!|
|Victory is mine!|
Today was a perfect beach day. Faith spent her time there abusing the good nature of family members.
|They WANT to serve me. It's not abuse.|
|Grandma, fetch me water!|
|I want to go into the ocean, but I don't want the water to touch me.|
Getting Faith to eat well and sleep well is really easy at the beach. She is carb loading like a marathon runner and sleeping like a college student on the weekend.
|I didn't get to be this tall by refusing cookies|
She is going to be so disappointed next week when she realizes that she is stuck with just me again. She will miss her audience.
|Tell me how cute I am!|
This trip has been a great "last hurrah" for her in her starring role as first and only grandchild. I'm sure she won't mind sharing the spotlight with her little sister at all...right? Kids love that kind of thing.
Do you like being the center of attention? I really don't, but I do enjoy watching Faith revel in it.
