This weekend was a great start to our summer fun. We packed up the car with floats, bathing suits, snacks and kids and headed into Boston with my brothers girlfriend and her kids.
This was a great experience because we stayed local enough that it was only 45 minutes away, but far enough away from home that it felt like a mini vacation. While we were away my brothers girlfriend told me that she takes trips all the time. She said, that he packs up her kids a couple time a month, jumps on a plane and goes on mini vacations with them alone.
Me being the closet adventurer that I am, would LOVE to be able to do that, only I never have. It is my dream to be that free and daring.
She said that this weekend she is going to Canada and that she was looking into translations services because she will be going to areas where they do not speak English.
I told her how jealous of her traveling I am, and that I would love to be able to do that someday. She said that if I wanted to go somewhere, she would pack up the kids and we could go anywhere I wanted to go.
I am seriously contemplating taking her up on this offer. But at least for this weekend, we had a great time in Boston on the duck tours and swimming in the hotel pool!
