It was a great two weeks vacation this year. Being able to take a break and a step back from the go-go-go of everyday life is so nice. Charlie, Jake and I hung out in our PJ's every morning until 11am. I never EVER get to do that. It was so refreshing, and you can tell Charlie loved the slow down of life too. I feel bad for the poor guy since our lives are so busy all the time, he just tags along with us where ever we go. But this time, we just slowed down and enjoyed each other. One of my favorite parts of the entire Christmas break was taking Charlie to the Travel Down Train. Jake and I got him a wooden train set for Christmas so he is just starting to love them and make the sounds... or as he says "tooo tooo". So we took him to ride the train. He was SO excited. He looked like he was on top of the world. Seeing his face and that smile made me so happy. Nothing can beat that.
