Stay Home Vacation

Kris had vacation from work last week. We didn't go anywhere but really tried to make the most of the week anyway! Friday we wanted to go to the temple in Palmyra. It is fun to stay in a hotel instead of making the long round trip in one night. Our friends came with us and watched our kids while we went to a session AND as if that wasn't enough they had take out from PF Chang waiting when we got home. So Yummy!

The kids had a great time swimming in the hot tub and hanging out with their friends. We stayed at the hotel that night, but our friends went to their parents house nearby. It is a good thing they didn't end up staying because Gabriella caught a stomach bug and so mom and Bree spent the night dealing with that. Poor girl, it was so sad to see her not feel well. She finally just crashed and fell asleep. Dad helped her out by keeping a sick bucket nearby.

Luckily she felt better by the next morning. Saturday morning we had other friends from Buffalo come to Palmyra so we watched their kids so they could go to the temple. After they did their session we went to a local pizza place and LDS bookstore. The kids managed to refrain from breaking anything at either location so we considered it a success. Since we were so close to Rochester we drove to the Children's museum there. The poor kids were so tired from everything the night before they were pretty pathetic at the museum. We only lasted a couple of hours. It was worth it though because I got to spend time talking to Angela in the "chic car" while Johnny and Kris hung out in the "dudes car". It was a fun trip to Palmyra! We appreciate having such awesome friends that are willing to roll with us throughout the weekend:) And as an added plus, I think everyone we were with escaped the stomach bug that Bree had--Yeah!
