thanks to a great deal i found online, we took the kids to the dells for our first family overnight trip. i went into it not knowing exactly how it would pan out but we all had a great time. much needed time spent with the daddy of the house.
leighton loved the wave pool and having it wash her to "shore." she thought it was hysterical. there is never a dull moment with this girl. love the boys in the background of this shot.
leighton's new smile. which appears in every. single. photo. as of late.
this was the first time in a hotel for the girls. and thankfully it went better than i could've hoped for. this was also leighton's first time sleeping in an actual bed instead of her crib. she had a queen bed to herself so i'd say she moved up in the world!
the only downside of our trip? the girls decided to wake up at 5:30a saturday morning. they've never done this at home, so i'm guessing they were just that excited to start our day.
the girls loved this large gorilla statue and i promised i'd take their photo with it. carson looks thrilled to be in the mix with his crazy sisters, doesn't he?
because of their early wake up call, everyone was asleep within five minutes of heading home. a blissful ride home being able to chat with my husband without any interruptions.
we had such a great time that we're hoping to go again before leaving next summer.
