Dan trashed our hotel room the minute we got there, lol.
|The first day, I wore this top I made 2 years ago. I love it! It's a racerback with a draped color blocked front and low peter pan collar. So comfy and great for vacay.|
We spent a lot of time in the hotel pool downstairs. One of the things that keeps Dan calm is water. If he were in water all day, he would be so still and peaceful.
My oldest also enjoys water but is less adventurous in the pool.
On the third day we made our way to the shore. I loved seeing this sign. Stronger than the storm...
I wore this shirt on the third day. Small shirt to draped tank, tutorial here
Amusement park rides also calm Dan down. He loves motion. Water and motion are his favorites! Here we are on the same train ride we took last year, I wrote about it in this post and took the same exact picture. This year I knew the drill; I went straight to the customer affairs office and asked for my bracelet, the bracelet that allows Dan to ride free because, well, he's "special". It's interesting that they put the bracelet on the mother and not the child. Last year was the first year I had to grapple with the fact that Dan does indeed act "special". I couldn't hide behind the the late bloomer label anymore and he outed me as a special needs mom.

All in all, we had a great time and it was a much needed change of scenery.
The end of the summer is approaching. Would love to hear what you all did!
