Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a fun New Year's Eve! Ours, as you can imagine with three children, was rockin'. We were all in bed well before midnight.

Yesterday we went to Cocoa Beach so we could go to the ocean. We packed our lunch and went to a really nice park. I was amazed at how clean the public restroom was! We ate lunch and the boys played on the playground for a while, then we ventured to the beach. What kind of moron doesn't bring bathing suits for small children to the beach? This one. It was only like 70 degrees out, so I didn't really think they would go into the water. WRONG. If you were at Cocoa Beach yesterday, my children were the white trash looking children splashing in the water. In their underpants. The water was frigid, but they didn't care.

After the beach, we went to the Kennedy Space Center. It was really cool, but completely reaffirmed our decision to not go to any of the parks. David and Henry enjoyed it, but were FAR too spastic to allow us to enjoy anything. They were also exhausted by the time we left, and there's no way we would get anything close to our money's worth at one of the Disney parks.

By far, the boys' favorite things to do so far while we've been here have been the beach (whether the real beach or the pretend beach at our resort), riding in the boat shuttle at our resort, and going to the playground. All FREE! I am enjoying that, because I know the next time we're here on vacation that will not be the case. Henry keeps asking, several times a day, when we're "going to our home". I do not think he'll be the world traveller in our family!

Today I think we'll hit the pool and the "beach" at our hotel. Have a great day, and Happy New Year! (A post on my resolutions is to come once our vacation is complete!)
