We woke up Sunday morning and checked out of the hotel. The kids loved riding on the luggage cart! Ha!
After church, we met our great friend Cate at SEALIFE Aquarium. Our friends hooked us up with free tickets here too! Amazing!
He was super excited!
Yep, you guessed it! The next stop was the AmericanGirl Store!
Thanks to some giftcards, we couldn't leave Tobin out! He got a fun surprise as well!
We had a great time as a family at Cate's home. We got to swim in the pool, and got a good nights rest before the ride home the next day. Monday, we woke up and headed to Ikea. This is where the miracle happens. We finally found couches that we could agree upon, that looked nice and were affordable. Have you tried to buy furniture lately? It's been so hard for us! Since we had a minivan, we thought we'd try to fit them in the vehicle to drive home, and safe $300 delivery cost. We did it! Well... I think the Lord did it! We fit a Couch, a love seat, an Ottoman, two storage units for the playroom, a play kitchen, and two rugs in this minivan! How is that possible you ask? Like I said, it was a true miracle! We were all seat-belted in and safe and comfortable too! Wow!
I need to say another HUGE thanks to our amazing friends who put this trip together for us. Thank you to Cate, and her sweet mother too! We could not have done this trip without our amazing friends! The Lord's timing in this was wonderful. We will always have the amazing new memories and photos of our first family vacation together- just the 4 of us! Such precious memories!
