It was a quick trip, we left Sunday afternoon, and returned Tuesday evening. But, the last time that Eli took any vacation days, we were adjusting to life with a newborn, and he was finishing finals for the spring semester. Not exactly "vacation". So, we went away for a couple days, to get away from phone calls, house projects, house cleaning, and such, and to enjoy some much-needed family time.
Soooooo good! I was a bit nervous about how good the trip would be overall, with traveling with Matthias. But, he was a little trooper! Great in the car, great in the stroller, happy to be outside, and even slept pretty good there! That made it soooo nice! And Silver Dollar City has nursing rooms, another bonus! I could hide away for half an hour, and Eli would run the boys around on some rides, and then we would meet right back up.

It was great to see the Nichols, and fun to watch the boys have the time of their little lives! Jonah often comments that Silver Dollar City is his "favorite place in the whole wide world!". So, the enthusiasm to go was not lacking at all (he woke up at 5:30 a.m. that Sunday, ready to leave ...).

Can't wait to go back, but it was also so good to pull in that driveway last night and sleep in my own bed!
