- We stayed a place with a full kitchen (a cottage)
- We brought my mother with us.
I wasn't so sure how the weekend would turn out because my mom and I fight like cats and dogs. But, I didn't fight with her at all. The only disagreement I had with her was over her letting my four year old daughter watch Predator (yes, the one with Arnold Schwazenager and yes, I know you agree with me). Other than that, it was great. It was like bringing a baby sitter and a chef at the same time! My mom cooked all my favorite foods and she watched our kids at night while we went drinking. How awesome!
If my mom found it tolerable, I think we'd like to take her with us on all vacations. She's like an Amex card...we shouldn't leave home without her!
