Like I said previously, I booked our flight, rental car, and hotel for a trip to Kauai in May. Just me and the misses. Being that we'll be away from Pax for 4 nights / 5 days, we thought it'd be good to have some shorter trips away from him between now and then...especially seeing as how he's never been away from us except for a day.
So, in January we're taking a 1 night / 2 day trip up to Mendocino thanks to our housemates who got us a B&B gift certificate for Christmas. Mmm.
Then in February, we're planning a 2 night / 3 day trip out to the sierras for wine-tasting, property-scouting, and general relaxation.
All of these trips will be sans Pax. I love that kid...and I already kinda miss him as I type that he won't be with us on those trips. But still, I need my space. So does he.
