Adult conversation

The kids and I went out to dinner tonight with my friend and her little boy. Both of our hubbies were gone for the evening so we decided to let the kids run and play in the play area while we had some nice adult conversation. And can I say that it was so nice! I love my kids, I really do, but it does get old having non-stop conversation with a 4yr old and listening to a 1yr old that only says ahhhh all day long. I felt human again. I do get to talk to Miles every night but I'm not sure how much of our conversation can be classified as more intelligent than kids! I'm grateful for my friend!

We are leaving tomorrow for a little family vacation and I'm so excited! We're just going up to a place at The Canyons but it is going to be fun. We're going to relax, swim, go to the Alpine Slide, do a little shopping at the outlet stores and enjoy being together. We don't ever go anywhere without other family members along so it will be nice that it is just us. We haven't had a family vacation like this since Scotty was 2 and our only child! This is a time share presentation thing. We have done this a couple times before and we love it. We get a free or really cheap stay and we don't have any problem saying no to the pushy sales people, so it's great. This time it will be interesting with all 3 kids in tow. Hopefully that will work to our advantage as they will want to get rid of us faster! Maybe if they get too pushy I'll start breastfeeding Collin! That should do the trick. Oh- or maybe a big, blowout poopy diaper! Yeah, that would be a good one too. I hope they're ready for us!!
