So this weekend the Goodes got the bright idea to take a spontaneous mini-vacation to one of our favorite spots to relax our troubles away.
It all started out well.
This picture eerily foreshadows what is about to happen.
See we got more than we paid for at our first restaurant…a restaurant that for sentimental purposes I will not tell you their name. However if you ever find yourself in the Smokey’s and ya get a hankering for a restaurant that rhymes with Cold Pill, ya might think on it again…
We get back to the hotel and spend the evening settling in at our cozy little hotel. Before long it is time for bed.
Mid-way through the night Puddie gets sick.
BIG TIME sick.
Ladies and Gentlemen…Food poisoning.
By the next day Puddie is miserable and the Monkey and me are raring to go.
We have been promised some shark seeing after all.
Puddie tries his best to hang on to his cookies, but it is clear that he is not having much fun.
After an attempt at breakfast we head on over to the aquarium.
In a moment of quick mommy-thinking I picked Add up a new Veggie Tales DVD along with Daddy’s 7 up and Pepto on a quick Walmart run.
Add loved the new story (about listening to your parents 😉 ) and it kept her entertained while Mommy tended to a sick Daddy.
All in all our vacation… well it stunk.
Needless to say we have never been so glad to see Indiana in our lives.
However, we now need a real vacation from our unvacation… 😉
Truth be told I am a little scared to try again…
I am the mama behind GOODEness Gracious and the owner of Cris Goode Solutions. Here at GOODEness Gracious, we like to keep it light and fun as we cook up family meals, share our super mommy secrets and chat it up about the GOODe life:) So come on in and sit a spell.
