That afternoon, we took the boys for their first trip to the beach! It was funny because we had to pay for parking in a close lot (a whopping $1). There were trees planted in the parking lot, and of course sand was all around them. The boys immediately started playing in the sand.....as if that was the beach! Cracked me up!

That night, my parents watched the boys so that Brian and I could squeeze in a date night. We went to this cute little restaurant for dinner. It was just nice to get away from the kids for an hour or so before the final day of travel.
Again, the boys were near perfect on the planes going back to Texas. It helped a lot to have 4 extra hands on the way back to help with them (my parents took the same flights back with us). I took off work the day after we returned, and Brian and the boys returned to their normal routines. Thank goodness! ha! It was so nice to have that one day to recoup.....alone.
The trip was so much better than I could have imagined! Before we left, I was beginning to think we were crazy for taking the kids. In hindsight, I'm so happy we did. They are such good boys and they were SO easy going the entire trip! We had one meltdown per day....total. It was just an amazing trip all around. :)
