First Family Vacation

We took our first family vacation to Wisconsin Dells last weekend. My husband and I were so worried how the kids would do. We've tried to put them down for naps at our families houses when we were over for holidays and even tried to spend the night at my parents house for Christmas last year with no success. I guess since they are home all day and don't leave the house for daycare, they are spoiled at being so comfortable being home but it causes issues when we want to go somewhere.

Needless to say, Friday night wasn't so great. They woke up about 5 or 6 times and Jaxson wouldn't go back to bed in the pack and play and ended up sleeping with my hubby on the bed which was a surprise. Saturday night was better, they only woke up about 2 or 3 times so maybe they just needed to get used to being away from home. Jaxson again, slept with my hubby in bed though. I was scared when we got home on Sunday that he wouldn't sleep in his bed but he did.

I think part of all the waking up was not being in their own beds but also the crazy teeth that are coming in one after another, after another. My poor babies have been teething for about 2 weeks straight now. Finally it seems as though it's coming to an end for now. Just until they start popping more teeth through anyways!

The hotel had indoor waterparks...........three to be exact. We went to two of them with the boys and they didn't want ANYTHING to do with them. That made me sad because I did really want to swim and have fun with them. I guess they were too intimated or scared of how big it all was. They DID play in the huge 3 level play area with all the balls. They were loving that!

All in all, it was a good weekend, a good first family vacation and my hubby had a good birthday away from home! Here are some pictures from this weekend:

Happy Mother's Day.........

AND my 100th post! Guess you could say I was waiting to write my 100th post until today! Today is monumental. A day that I dreamed about for so long. Definitely didn't think I'd have 2 children at once but it's such a blessing I can't even put it into words.

Being a Mom to Jaxson and Jayce is the most rewarding thing in the world...........tantrums, whining and all! I love my kids more than anything in this world. I may not always get up in the middle of the night and I may not always give my full undivided attention but that doesn't mean I love my kids any less. They  mean the world to me and on this day (and my 100th post), I want to tell them that Mommy loves you VERY much and thanks God for giving me this precious gift to be your momma! You are the best little boys! 

Happy Mother's Day!
