As for the trip, it was wonderfully relaxing. We got to the hotel on Thursday evening. We went down to the beach and let the kids play around. It was still pretty cloudy from the cold front moving through, but the sun would peek out every once in a while.
On Saturday, we headed back down to the beach. The wind had died down considerably at this point, but it was still a bit chilly. But not enough to stop the kids. They played in the sand and a little bit in the water and then went up to the pool for a dip. By lunchtime, I thought the excitement of vacation was starting to wear on Brady, I later realized that it was not that but perhaps the fact that my son was developing an allergic reaction to something...my guess is the luxurious feather bedding we slept on. Anyways, at lunch he was getting quite ornery. His eyes were bothering him from the chlorine and he was complaining about the wind hurting his eyes so I gave him my sunglasses to wear. However, he kept griping and complaining so like any mother, I told him: "If you don't change your attitude, then I am going to make you lay down and take a nap!" Do you know what his response was???? "Rock stars don't take naps!" How do you keep a straight face after a comment like that? He did change his attitude and I guess had we known he was suffering from an allergic reaction, I would have been a little more sympathetic to his discomfort. Whoda thunk that an allergy like that would take nearly 2 days to show up?!?
