We the kids did not disappoint. They woke up at 7am. Ready to go. Good lord, didn’t we tell them vacations mean sleeping in? Sigh. We got up and got ready to head out for breakfast. Sign in at Camp Sesame started at 9am. :0P
We were still unsure how we were going to handle this. After the day we had yesterday, we needed a break and the kids needed some cool activities. During breakfast we worked out a plan. Maybe half day, maybe just a couple of hours. We were not worried about William so much as he could be easily distracted. Olivia on the other hand, has a history of separation anxiety. It would be interesting.
After breakfast, we headed to Camp Sesame and totally played it up. The childcare workers were lovely and the quickly took to these monkeys. Olivia and William just wanted to play. We fillout the necessary forms and Martin took Olivia to get settled in ther program and I took William to get settled. We said our goodbyes and left. Of course, it took us awhile because Papa had to go through his list of questions and concerns about the kids. The people there patiently listened and told us not to worry they were going ot have a great time. Worked for me! They gave us the cell phone and off we headed to the beach.
We found our lounges and settled in to enjoy our morning at the beach – constantly checking our phone to see if they had called. I actually got to read for an hour and half!!!! Martin went swimming in the ocean. It was heavenly. Then, it was time to make that decision. Do we pick up O from camp? Nope. No phone call, means no worries. So we let that go and they had lunch with the other kids. Maman and Papa had lunch by the beach. Some yummy jerk chicken and pork fajitas. I even took a virgin strawberry daiquiri just because we were on vacation. Oh man, we are eating wayyyy too much. This inclusive vacationing is dangerous.
When we got there, the child care workers told us they had a wonderful day! What? Yup, the kids were great! They played well, ate well, and were still sleeping? What? Olivia took a nap? GREAT!!!!! As we were talking though, Olivia was started to get out of her sleep when she saw us at the door. Still disoriented, she ran over and hugged us! Yay, she wasn’t crying! WE signed her out, but left William because he was still sleeping. We decided to take Miss O to the beach.
Anyways…we had dessert and then it was time to go. William had enough and was in his stroller for the remainder of the night because of his temperament – he was done. Olivia’s cheeks were flushed red – means she was totally exhausted to. We walked back to our room and the crashed (eventually). Not bad for day 2. Definitely Camp Sesame again tomorrow
