This is a blog about our life. I started the blog because we lived overseas for my husbands job. That meant it was hard to keep family, back in The States, in the loop about what we were up to. It also became a great way to share my sons birth story with everyone who we wish could have been there. I slowly got busy with life & stopped blogging. Here we are in 2014, living back in the good ol' USA & as we make life changes I find this to be a great way to share my thoughts and save them for my son to look back on someday.

Spain Day 1

Memorial Day weekend we decided to head to Spain. Spain was one of our "Must See's" before we PCS. I have to say that, if Spain were the only place we visited while here I would be fine with that. It was so beautiful. Something about it was so calming and peaceful. It has been a rough year in my family and I really enjoyed the relaxation and peacefulness. It is kind of odd that it was so peaceful because where we stayed is such a tourist area. I don't know if we just picked a good time of year or what, but it was amazing.
So our adventure.
We flew out early on a Thursday morning. I was a little nervous about this flight because it was the first time the kid would be flying as a lap baby. He has always had his own seat when we fly. Now that he is older, he likes to move around so I was worried he would be restless. He did great though. We arrived in Spain, got our luggage and walked to the rental car place. The rental car place was actually off airport grounds. I was afraid it was going to be a nightmare. It was less than a 5 minute walk. We were already HOT. It was pretty cool when we left Germany. We ran the AC in the car ASAP. Getting into the car was fun because they park the cars like sardines in a can there. It didn't take long and we were on our way to the hotel. It was a quick drive to Lloret De Mar, The town we would be staying in. We took a few wrong turns trying to get to the hotel. And the roads were super tiny. Eventually we found the hotel and a parking spot. We were super early though for check in. We figured we could hang out at the beach until check in. I needed to change The Kids diaper though, so we went to ask to use the restroom in the lobby. To our surprise our room was ready to go and we could check in already. YAY! Their system is rather outdated so check in was a much longer process than what we are used to, but the lady at the front desk was super friendly. I was super excited to get to our room and see our room and our amazing view.
