Vacation Weekend!

I just love 3 day weekends! We need more of them for sure.  Memorial Day is also such a nice reminder to honor those that have suffered and served in our military- including both of my Grandfathers.

So this weekend we took advantage of the time-off and took our first ever vacation with our baby since we was born. Heck, it was our first vacation in almost 2 years too!  I was really wanting to go back to Cancun where we got married and have a nice relaxing beach vacation and to stroll down memory lane, but we were not really wanting to pack up, fly with a baby, deal with airports, international traveling and wondering if the water would be safe enough to drink for our baby girl. And the food for our 1 year old in Mexico? No habla Organic.

We decided we would take a nice Texas trip down to the Hill Country and stay at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort. We were ready for some R & R and so was Luna!  What an awesome place!!  A complete Family destination for sure. Lots of activities for kids all day long, not to mention a camp fire each night, with S'mores.  Yum.  Luna also loved the Lazy River as she cruised around in her baby float and canopy.

But the best part about the trip so far has been that she has slept like a baby!  We were so worried about what we would do with her pack-n-play and staying in our room while she went to sleep.  She goes to bed at 7:30pm so we were worried about how to keep the noise down as we watched TV.  We couldn't leave the room and go to a bar like we used to before kids.  Solution? Our lovely white noise machine and putting the pack-n-play in the double closet. I know, strange, but the closet was near the door and away from the TV and the main room.  The double doors stay open and she has her own little cubby. Perfect!

We also came up with a great idea for relaxation while she slept. Our room has a nice balcony so we were able to sit outside, relax and drink/dine while she slept.  Now that we have survived our first trip in a hotel room with a baby, we are ready for more adventures!!
