We’ve finished leg #1 of our trip, which wasn’t too far from home. But it felt like a real vacation. How so? Our oldest spiked a fever and threw up twice. He’s fine now, but it reminded me of a few trips where my sister and/or I got sick.
And even as I gave him the world’s most expensive children’s tylenol, it made me smile. It’s our first big vacation as a family.
Sure, we’ve gone to San Diego when our oldest was 6 months old. Or the trips to Arizona for Christmas.
It might be that this is the first trip we’ve taken where my husband took the whole week off. It could be that the boys are both old enough to appreciate the journey.
Armed with my Flip camera and my cameraphone, it’ll be interesting to see what pops up.
