We managed a spontaneous, last minute trip to the cottage for a night over the weekend. It was such a beautiful day here on Saturday, and the cottage is only 1 1/2 hours away so we couldn't resist. We were actually heading home from doing some shopping and Malaia fell asleep in the truck. I looked at Ang and said if we go we go now while she's sleeping. So a quit pit stop at home and we were on our way.
It was equally just as nice up north. Both kids either slept or kept quiet for the entire ride. So it was nice to just get away. Malaia got to play in the lake, and Koa was pretty content just lounging outside in the fresh air and warm sunshine.
The only downside, was that we thought perhaps and afternoon of running around outside or swimming in the lake or just getting fresh air for that matter would knock Malaia out for the night and we'd all get a good sleep. But alas, it was not meant to be. She woke up twice and wasn't too happy, because she wasn't familiar with her surroundings. A good few minutes each time was all it took to calm her down and for the most part the we did get a pretty decent sleep.
It was just nice to get away from the everyday and relax, if even for a couple of hours. Both kids were on their best behaviour.. I give the weekend 2 thumbs up!
