10th Day of Vacation and More!

Friday, August 06, 2010

Ok, so I didn't blog the last day I was on vacation. Those boys of mine wouldn't let me just sit by the computer and do what I wanted. I had to play cards!! It was fun. So, to the last day of vacation: Got up early and went to the gym. I did my own hour of spin class. It was good! Then, I took a full body pump class. It was good, but not great. I was planning on taking the next class which was spin/yoga, but they cancelled it. So, I did the elliptical for 40 minutes. I had to burn some extra calories b/c I knew the next day I wasn't working out. Got home, took a shower, and then, we went out for brunch/lunch. We went back to the 1st cafe we went to. It was just as good. Had an eggwhite omelet w/ turkey, mushrooms and spinach. It came w/ fruit and a muffin. Ate it all. I was hungry. We walked around for a bit and then went back to the house. Dropped Isaac off & went to the skating rink. I took video and pics while DH, Tzvi & Rachel skated. It was oh, so cold in there!!

Thank goodness, we only stayed for 20 minutes. DH bribed Rachel to leave early if we would buy her a webkinz. It worked. Warmth!!! Stopped off at an ice cream shoppe. I got iced coffee b/c they didn't have any frozen yogurt. Ran to the store for ice packs and etc, and then, went home. Decided to pack then. Basically got everything ready to go, packed up the car & after all that, played some more cards. Those boys of mine were in a mood. Laughing and joking. I almost peed in my pants at one point. After awhile, we played some Scattegories while we ate dinner. Then, it was bedtime. Couldn't fall asleep for the 2nd night in a row. Tossed and turned. By the time I fell asleep, the alram went off at 5:30. Ugh! Got up, got ready and off we went in our packed car. My DH took pics of it, but I didn't. I'll have to get him to send them to me. DH drove the frist half & I got to sleep a bit. Stopped off at Jack in the Box & gas. Then, it was my turn to drive home. Got back at 2:00. Unpacked the car, unpacked the clothes & then, did nothing until DH decided to take me out for dinner. Sushi!!! Nothing like sushi in the valley! Ran to Borders, then to Tutti Frutti for frozen yogurt (got the kids order and brought it home). It was an amazing trip and we had a great time. Wondering were we're going next. DH & I already started talking about it!! Hopefully, we'll do something in December.

This was the pic my DH couldn't find of us at the stateline: California & Nevada at the same time!

So, that is it. Don't think this means no more blogging. I'll keep it up, I promise. I enjoy it!

Until next time-

    It sounds as though you had a wonderful trip. Good memories. emoticon It also sounds it was a very active trip. Good balance of food choices. You engaged in a greater variety of activity than you realize simply packing and unpacking. I enjoyed the pictures-thanks for sharing. Glad you plan continuing to blog. Updates are always enjoyed.
    Have a good weekend.

    I love how it was a family vacation and you guys spent it together hiking, kayaking, and playing games - very cool. I can't wait until the little one is old enough to do everything we can do so we can do it all together.

    You have inspired me to think about putting together a little Big Bear trip!
