My kids...Charlie and Theresa
So last night I broke the news to the kids that we will all be āgoing on vacationā beginning this Saturday. Now before I get too far, let me just say thisā¦my vacation was made possible by some really great people who love me and my kids and know itās been rough for Dad to pull āgo-away-vacationsā this past year. I put some prayer to it; not that god would be my āgenieā, but, that the right thing would happen. In the end, I just wanted some extended time together ; even if it was in our own town.
On Saturday, we travel to the home of their Uncle Brian and Aunt Shannon in Central Pennsylvania. My Brother set up homestead in the same town as my Mom, so we will be able to see āGrandma Doudā tooā¦which is always a big hit since my mom is homebound and cannot get out much. We will be staying at āUncle Brianāsā which was worth some cheers from Charlie and Theresa.
Then, on Monday, we head back to Virginia for a night at Dads place before turning around and heading BACK across the water for a belated Christmas Gift to me and the kidsā¦.a stay at GREAT WOLF LODGE! This got the kids screaming! For those in the know, Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg is only like the coolest indoor water park and hotel in the world! We went onlineā¦I showed them pictures of the placeā¦and immediately the conversation changed to āhow many wakeups until we leave for Great Wolf Lodge?ā.
"The Great Wolf Lodge"
So, as my kids drifted off to sleep last night, they both let me know there were only 5 more wakeups till Uncle Brians, and 7 more wakeups till Great Wolf Lodge.Ā I love being a Dadā¦and every now and again, the universe seemingly loves me back for how much I do.
A Lazy Day at DadsĀ
Thanks, Universe! I appreciate the assist on this vacation! I owe you one.
