Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

Vacation. We're headed out again! Thanks to good ole' hotel points, we are headed to Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City for the week. Ocean Shitty isn't so shitty if you stay at the Hilton and enjoy the water park. If you see a crazy mom taking her three-year old daughter down the huge water slide on the webcam- Yeah, that would be me.

The hubz and I are great at being active parents. We are do-ers and like to be on the go. We're great at crunching numbers and being able to pull vacations out of our arse. I'm always doing things with the kids... BUT... I'm horrible at being a proactive mama. Ya know, I'm not the mom that is super prepared with packed fresh cut apples sprinkled with cinnamon and tin water bottles. I'm more the, "Let's get dippin' dots from the snack bar, or swing my car through the McDonald's drive-thru kind of mom." And I'm on a mission to change that.

In my dream world, I would be a baby-wearing, cloth-diapering, home-schooling, granola eatin', let's go green, grow my own food kind of mom. But I'm not. I'm actually far from it. But I do still "wear" my daughter and I have started recyling. I'm not gonna lie though, I'm counting down until the first day of Kindergarten.

In order to become more proactive in our lives, we're headed to the grocery store to stock up on water, fruits and veggies, whole grain bread, and healthy snacks to try our best to dodge the hotel on the go eating lifestyle. Now, I'm not saying that a greasy slice of Grotto's pizza isn't going in my mouth, but we're tryin.'

We're also doing something crazy as a family... Crazy to me anyway. We're checking into a hotel, but checking out of modern day technology. This is going to be a week of nothing but family time- and I couldn't happier.

Life is good today, and I'm putting my computer away...
Until we return- Cheers!
