This past weekend my hubby and I went for a weekend getaway...kinda like a "babymoon" before baby #2 arrives. We have been saying for over 2 years now that we'd do this. For every birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion we've said, "We won't buy gifts for each other, we'll just plan a weekend away." Well, we've finally taken our weekend away.....the first time leaving Camden for more than 1 night, or a few hours.
Thankfully we knew that he'd be well taken care of by his grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins. (They all live close together so he was with a lot of family!) And he got to do his favorite thing all weekend long....SWIM! He's such a little fish. He asks for the "pool" every day, if not every hour. So he got lots of swimming time and Daddy and Mommy got some much needed rest.
The funny part is though, that both Renato and I realized that we were actually bored. Yes, bored! Without Camden! He's just sooo busy and takes up sooo much of our time and thoughts and lives, that it was a bit boring without him. We spent most of the weekend just talking about him and wondering what he was doing. Funny how that works. I had been dreaming of this weekend for over a month, then when we were away, all I thought about was home. Crazy!
Renato and I did have a great time though. We went to a beach town called Ubatuba. We've been there twice before, but never by ourselves. The first time we had Renato's brother with us, and the second time we took my parents and Camden. We stayed at the same little hotel as always, called a "Pousada" in portuguese. We love this little place. They have amazing breakfasts and are only about a 2 minute walk to the beach, plus the owners and workers are so friendly and fun. So we spent most of our time just sitting on the beach, not really doing anything, but just relaxing and resting. We know that it was our "last chance" to do this before Dawson arrives, so we figured it was either now, or never!
We're glad we went and had a great time.....but it was so nice to come home to our little guy that we missed so much!
