Me: "How long do you think it will take for us to start talking about the kids?"
Chris: "Isn't asking that question technically talking about the kids?"
No matter how hard we try when we're on a date or in this case, on a trip ALONE, the kids are always with us. Don't get me wrong, we have plenty of other things to talk about, but there are so many things that remind us of our munchkins while we are not with them.
As I looked through the pictures from our "big kid" trip, I noticed a pattern. A lot of our pictures were taken FOR the kids. There were so many cool things we saw that we knew they would have loved to see too. Chris and I both found ourselves pointing them out to each other, snapping a picture of whatever it was, and texting it to my mom to show the kids.
What kind of pictures? Well, thanks for asking! I'll show you and I'm sure you'll agree there is no way we could have passed these up.
That's right. An iguana basking in the sun, a huge freight ship, a draw bridge and a blimp. Please note there were MULTIPLE pictures taken of each. I just chose the best out of the bunch.
No matter where we looked, it seemed everything reminded us of the kids. I spotted this car and immediately yelled,
"Chris, look! It's Lizzie from Cars. Quick, take a picture of me and the car so we can show the kids."
Sure, there were interesting facts about the car on a piece of paper in the window, but we were more excited to show Tuck "who" we found. We then continued our walk to the beach. Along the way, talking about the kids (of course), we saw this and both took a picture.
I text it to my mom and asked Tuck what he thought made this. I knew full well he would answer, "WOLVERINE!". Ahh, a nerdlet in the making.
As the days went on at the beach, our pace slowed in talking about the kids.
That is, until I saw this little guy.
