We had a wonderful trip and it was worth the chaos that ensured the days leading up to take off. I felt better within a day of getting to the island, but Jay and I made the mistake of not wearing enough sunblock on a cloudy day of moped along the west coast of the island. We were SO sunburnt on our backs that it was embarrassing to start the conference like that, OOPS! Oh well, we had an amazing time, and I did pretty good with being away from the boys since I had such great daily updates and face time with the boys. I had that "yearning" for them on day 5, but I did ok.
The boys themselves had a GREAT time while were gone too. They really missed us but didn't miss a beat while we were gone. It's good for all of us to have these breaks, but the boys were sure to make sure they're along for the next trip ;)
The boys had some baseball, photos and swimming while we were gone, along with their regular school schedule and everything went smooth and fabulous. The only hiccup I heard for Miss Gina was that Jax's pump extension came apart from the tubing the first night and she said that Brady jumped out of bed and started to offer help and guidance on how to clean Jax up with getting him new pj pants and wipes to clean up the floor. Miss Gina got tears in her eyes describing the scene and said how amazing of a kid Brady is. Omg, he really is. He's been asking for directions to run Jax's pump lately, so we let him prime it while we get them ready for bed. He's such a care taker.
Otherwise, the week went great and I'm so thankful for that!!
This is the last full week of school for the boys since next week is Memorial Day and the following week they end on a Wednesday, so these little dudes are almost done! I'm quickly preparing for that circus ;)
|This was the scene of the boy's first game the night before we left - it was HORRIBLE outside!|
|Opening ceremonies with the other agent from Wisconsin that qualified. Love the Brinkmanns!|
|Pictures don't do this party justice|
|I didn't get photos of the fire breathers since I was so mesmerized by the show!|
|Oh these little girls!|
|Our Bed and Breakfast place the weekend before the conference began. We wanted non-resort for this portion and it was perfect.|
|The boys picked us up at the airport and carried our bags, ha, the reason to have kids!|
|I love ornaments as souvenirs.|
|I thought these two looks like two peas in a pod right here after church|
|Miss Gina sent me constant updates of the boys and here they were before their game when we were gone. They both scored and did well!|
|It's amazing how long a child can play with a simple ball!|
