Kisswold Family Vaca

Yowza. It's been a cah-razy Monday already.

I should have done a re-post while I was away, but well, I was AWAY! Heh.

Took the whole fam damily on a vacation. This is a big deal, as we've never done it. We've traveled w/ the kids - to visit other family, etc. But never on a "pack the wagon and let's explore and sleep in hotels" vacation.

We visited Lake Placid and Lake George NY. The kids loved it. Me & the Mr. (aka Clark & Ellen KISSwold) loved it. I only took a couple of my Vitamin X...all in all, a good time.

Things I learned.

~My children are IMPATIENT little fuckers. No joke - we'd order breakfast, the server would walk away, and Big Kiss would say "this is taking so long" "I want my dippers" "Where's my milk."

Literally - she had JUST walked away!

~Hotel mornings w/ early risers pretty much suck. As in donkey balls. No matter what time those turds went to bed, they were up wicked early and looking for shit to do. Not so easy when piled into a room w/ no toys, etc. So we did lots of visiting the hotel lobby, walking around (before the damn coffee shop was even open!) and even ventured out to a breakfast at HoJos. Again - see above re: impatience.

~Mr. Kiss and I could never EVER be on the Amazing Race together. He sucks at directions and map reading. And has a tad bit of impatience himself.

~Olympic ski jumpers are incredibly muscular. And sort of insane, I think.

~My 4 year old would swim any where any time, hot or cold, pool or lake.

~Same 4 year old apparently likes to drop trou any where, any time.

~Almost 2 year old can be scraped, gouged and bruised about 37 times and not be phased. Also, won't wear bandaids. Also, his toe nails are fucking daggers.

~Even in 'shackles' I am hawt. (What the F do you call this thing?)

~Six Flags theme parks attract very very interesting clientele. Very very large people who apparently don't mind dressing scantily. Or being wasted in public (at 11am). Or running past you to get in line for a ride. Seriously. It was people watching heaven.

~Ending a vacation on a Saturday was the PERFECT solution. We needed Sunday to recover. Do laundry, grocery shop, watch T.V. :)

Sigh. Over and out. Can't wait for next year!

LMAO! Great post. I love family vacations, but boy do they offer some challenges. Both years I have taken my sons on big trips--HEAT WAVES. 2007 NYC had a freakin' ass hot summer. Last year,took my mom, neice, the boys, and family friend to DC and Philly--both having one of the hottest summers ever. Oh, the tantrums were nasty; thank God the kids behaved better than the adults!

Welcome home, back to normalcy and reality. I really enjoy your blogs! :) Lisa B

why Thank You Lisa!!
I remember that 2007 summer in NYC. I was like 47 weeks pregnant and we decided to make a trip to a Yankee's game. OY. It was hot lugging that big ol' belly around!

Luckily we had no tantrums. Just the impatience. Of all boys ;)

One summer we took the kids (ages 9 and 7 at the time)to Toronto. Wonderful hotel. Loads to see and do. We decided that the only thing we did wrong was to bring them with us. Otherwise it was the best family vacation ever!

Hotels do suck ass with small kids. Which is why I try and leave mine behind when I go anywhere :p But seriously......4 year olds are tough! Take it from a gal that KNOWS. We'll get thru this age. Right?!?!
