Visit to the South

Our journey to the south for New Years (and the following week and a half thereafter) was about as much fun as a two-year-old could ask for. Taking a break from the cold, Chicago weather to chase chickens, ride horses, drive go-carts, play with toys abounding and have the pleasureful company of seven other big boys to play with was a refreshing and exhilarating start to our year.

But the most beneficial part of the trip was to just take a break from the paces of life, and the slow, simple routine of southern living was the perfect outlet for such.

He got to spend a lot of time sitting around and reading, coloring, and playing with trains and cars. And he enjoyed it thoroughly, and the simplicity made it so it wasn't a huge change in routine and schedule, making for one content (and not cranky) preschooler.

The trip was very last minute, and it cut into two weeks of "getting stuff done" around here. But it was a welcome relief, and I am SO glad we went. We'll probably be visiting again in the spring, with more adventures with farm animals and social engagements. We're greatly looking forward to it.
