We finally got a little vacation last weekend.

We go down to Medford and stay with family friends every summer, though this time wasn't quite as relaxing as it was in the past with a baby and a very busy (almost) 3 year old running around.
It was actually a little nutso but nice to get away nonetheless.

We left Friday morning right before nap time, hoping they'd sleep a few hours in the car:
The boys only slept for 40 minutes but I was prepared with tons of books/books on cd/my moms ipad.
Bennett stayed busy and was able to let Buckly nap at least a little bit.

Once we got there, the salt water pool welcomed us as always:
Bennett loves the water and this was the first year he could actually got around all by himself with the help of his floatie thing. He was kicking his legs like a mad man to get around to shoot everyone with his   squirty toy:

Enjoying the not-too-hot hot tub:
We checked out Rogue Creamery:
(Such good cheese! I lived in Medford for 11 years and never even knew it existed.)
Winery Shminery, I could sample cheese all day:
We also visited Lillie Belle Chocolates next door:
(Chris was about to try a sample with a ghost chile in it...SO hot that it needed 3 warning signs incase you didn't see the first two)
He didn't see what the big deal was:
We both got a dark chocolate truffle:
(so good)
On Sunday, Bennett got to ride on "Thomas" at Raildroad Park:
(every 3 year old boy's dream)

Though it was pretty dorky, they had an impressive model train setup:
and we got to go on a lot of out-of-comission cars:
I'm pretty sure this was the only time B sat still all weekend:


and of course we had more pool time:

Monday afternoon we came home to a few fun packages including this awesome banner I ordered for Bennett's birthday which is next week!
(check out Katherine's shop to check out her other cute crafty things) 
All in all it was a pretty good weekend!

Happy Wednesday Friends!

    Cheese is about 100 times better than wine in my book ;)

    Glad you guys checked out the train park! And I would agree, vacation is no where near as relaxing as it was before kids!
