Blake took off work last week for our annual "staycation." We are not going on vacation this year, as we are saving our money to take Jackson and Claire to Disney World in December. (Shhh...it is a secret). We are soooo excited!!! I am not going to lie and say I haven't missed the beach this summer, but a staycation with a 3 and 6 year old is pretty fun, too!! My kids have sleeping problems when we travel (and by problems, I mean they don't sleep), so our stay cation may even be more refreshing! On Monday, our buddy Cheng Yu came over to play. (Blake actually worked Monday...his vacation started on Tuesday)....on Tuesday Claire woke up with a fever and puke. That part wasn't so great, but she bounced back quickly and she didn't share her virus with us. The rest of the week, Blake worked on his "to do" list, cleaned out our garage, and WE PAID OFF OUR PILOT. That is a really big deal. We had 2 car payments when we married, and for the most part have had at least one car loan at one point or another for the past 10 years. I am thankful that debt is GONE!!! We have been working with Dave Ramsey's budgeting tools for several years now, and are thankful for the knowledge he has taught us...especially about vehicle loans! We also went to the Discovery Museum, Aquarium, and had a swimming day last week. I have so missed Blake this week since he has been back at work. Summer is FLYING by.
