I miss good Mexican food I grew up eating. I had some while I was down south. I wish I could have it flown to me.

If someone could possibly get hurt, it'll happen. It's inevitable. The guys got severe chigger bites on the first bathroom stop. C fell at the second stop and skinned up his legs and forehead (nothing like applying alcohol on a wound of a high-strung kid in a rest stop bathroom). Thankfully, the hurts eased up as the trip went along.

It's also totally worth it to revisit places you did as a kid and see it through your kids' eyes this time around. I might be sappy, but I teared up throughout the week seeing the joy on my kids' faces. It reminded me of the joy I felt as a child and made me thankful that we were able to take a vacation. I'll never forget sitting on the beach with L Child and Button on my lap singing songs about the ocean. It was a heart-warming moment.
|Sea lions and seals!|
|Spent their money on eels of course!|
|I call this the "Happy-Elevator-I'm-Going-Swimming" dance.|
|Do you remember being this happy about swimming in a hotel pool?|

|Button loved the carousel!|
