My husband has a huge family. (in comparison to the way I grew up… with just my mom, dad, and I) Each year, we all meet up for a 3-day weekend away. This year, we decided on Labor Day weekend.
We have found the best vacations are the ones where there isn’t much to do. That might not make much sense, but we just have the most fun this way. Theme parks are great… and always tons of fun, but sometimes it’s nice to just hang out.
My son says it’s the best time he has ALL YEAR!
This year, I decided to take it one step further, by leaving my phone in the room. And NO SOCIAL MEDIA. I sort of did this on a recent staycation we took, leaving my phone behind most of the time, but I still checked in and posted some stuff online.
Lately, I have been a bit social media obsessed. Specifically, when it comes to Instagram. If you follow my IG page, you know I LOVE to post a pic or two… or 5… a day. I love seeing what everyone else posts, pictures of their kids, their vacations… whatever.
Sometimes I find myself editing and cropping pics when I should be paying attention to my kids or my husband. (whoops) So this trip I decided I would just really enjoy myself and not worry about getting pictures of every cute moment. But I did make sure my husband had his phone, and when I wanted to take pic, I just asked him for it. (also, lots of other people were taking pictures, so I just had to steal them from Facebook)
I have to admit… it was SOOOO nice. It made me wish I could just get rid of my phone, then an hour after that thought… I was back on Instagram.
So here are a few pics of what we did this weekend… since you didn’t see any of it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. 😉
