This weekend’s adventures were more for the parents than Eleanor. Given that Eleanor is only just crawling around and thinks plastic bags and mirrors are the pinnacle of all that is fascinating in this world, the parental units chose a vacation they would enjoy for the wife’s 30th birthday weekend. So, they rented a house and invited mom’s mom, brother, and his girlfriend along for a birthday weekend. Last December the parents celebrated their last few months of baby-free life by renting this house (well, they’re poor so really it was a gift from the wife’s mother). It’s a comfortable, clean house with a great view and a block’s walk to beach access in a quiet, small town. Plus, bonus: it has a hot tub right above the beach and the waves sound amazing at night with the windows open.
Eleanor got to do a lot of exploring, and so did the dog.
Ok, we’re off to figure out how we can budget to get a hot tub and an ocean view.
