Patrick's mom came down and watched the boys. What a blessing it is to have family near by to help! What made our mini-vacation much more relaxing was knowing the boys were in good hands. I didn't worry for a second.
We left early Thursday morning so we could take advantage of being alone to test drive a few vehicles. I'll spare you the boring details but in a nutshell we're looking at suburbans and vans.
We arrived at Ocean Crest Resort, checked in to a room with the most beautiful view, and then relaxed for a few hours. Soaking in some quiet time, watching a movie, surfing the net without interruptions was amazing to say the least. It was weird to say "let's go ____" and then get up and walk out the door without a ton of prepping kids and buckling seat belts over wiggly bodies.

We did so much in two days. We checked out the little towns surrounding Moclips. I fell in love with Seabrook, a cute little neighborhood where every house was decorated like a beach house with friendly neighbors, cute shops, and a great restaurant called Mill 109.
Something IPA (can't remember the name)

A walk on the beach left us chilled but refreshed for our night out at Quinault Casino in Ocean Shores. The ocean is gorgeous and loud.
I don't think we'll go this long before our next vacation with just the two of us. It was fabulous. I was excited to see the boys, though, and give them some big hugs and kisses. I sure missed them! Almost everything we did or saw we mentioned how much Miles and Grant would like it. It makes me excited for our family vacations this summer.
