We had our first getaway as a family of four this weekend. It was technically our seventh wedding anniversary getaway, but we decided to bring the kids too. Peter took Monday off to make it a long weekend, and we hit the beach. We stayed in a beautiful self-contained two bedroom apartment with sea views and a spa and just worked hard at relaxing.
Indulge me on this trip down memory lane… I’d just like to pretend for a moment that I’m back there, instead of here with baskets of washing and housework to do. K?
Ready to go!
Having some father-daughter quality time
The view from our balcony.
Towel, bucket, kite… ready to hit the beach!
It’s NOT cold Mama *shiver shiver shiver*
Reuben was captivated by the spa bath.
Sibling snuggles. Oh my heart.
Pete cooked me a delicious dinner… a replica of the first meal he ever made for me, one valentines day when we were going out.
One could become very accustomed to having that view at breakfast time!
You know you’re on holidays when your hubby paints your toenails for you!
Mayana thought our dinner was like a wedding, because we used these very fancy plastic cups.
Reuben is beginning to sit up independently. He will be five months old tomorrow!
Mayana thought this was just about the best playground she’d ever seen.
I wish I was back there still! I am consoling myself with the thought that we are booked in for a whole week there in December. And taking my family, so we’ll even have baby sitters should Pete and I get the urge for a dinner date.
Until then, I’m just gonna look at these photos and enjoy my memories for a while…
