The only reason we were able to go on a trip without our kids is because we have the only grandkids. If our kids weren’t such a hot commodity, I don’t think we could have convinced my parents to spend their spring break watching them. Fortunately for us, doing what we do every day sounds like fun to them, so they were more than happy to pretend to be us for a few days. Now that they’ve done it, we’ll see if it ever happens again. The kids of course loved spending time with grandma, grandpa, and Uncle Mitchell and hardly noticed that we were gone.
