Yesterday we went on our mini summer getaway. We decided last minute to try and fit in a night at Coronado and it was so great. We took off mid-afternoon and spent the night in a hotel on the beach. It is so great! Our cell phones even went dead so no calls or anything. It is such a nice getaway. The kids played at the park right on the beach outside our room and we had two nice days on the beach. I just love this time because it is quick and easy to pack up, fast to get there and such a short ride home. The family even indulged me and let me pull out the camera. Having those military privileges are so nice too. I got up early this morning and worked out at their top-notch facility. I could have stayed there all day but we wanted one more day on the beach. Between the boogie board and the sand toys the kids stayed entertained while I read. How can you beat that!
Now we are back to reality….6 loads of laundry, responsibilities and Pete has his shoulder surgery tomorrow. Praying and hoping that all goes well tomorrow.
