Vacation Day #8

We took a vacation from our vacation today. Mom always wakes up at like 5am when we are at home. She always wishes she could just sleep in but her body just won't let her. This morning I woke up at almost 9am which I never sleep past 8am. I noticed Mom was still in bed too. I was shocked. When she woke up I said I guess you need to stay up till midnight more often. She couldn't believe she slept that late. It sure felt fantastic for both of us.

We took our time and walked over to our next door pancake house that we are in love with. It was BUSY. We had to wait probably a half hour but it was really worth it. We noticed the line never died down either. I think it actually got longer by the time we left. We walked to a little store next door to get our own breakfast things for in the morning. We are going to hopefully sleep in again and eat in for breakfast. Breakfast in bed sure sounds good to me. Since it's just so busy and with the eclipse tomorrow we are planning on just sticking right around here to be safe and sound.

When we got back after the run to the store I had one chore to do...
With the heat we've been having laundry could not be put off any longer. Fresh smelling clothes is a must haha. I told mom I want to have more than one set of washing/drying machines at home. It goes really fast when you can do two loads of laundry at the same time haha.

We ordered Dominoes Pizza delivered and relaxed the rest of the day. We had several TV shows we needed to catch up on since we've been out so late having fun the past week. It was a very nice very relaxing day.

We have been glancing out the window and watching the crazy crowds of people walking down the street. It's so busy out there! They are doing some free concerts nearby and with the eclipse tomorrow and tourists it's busy busy busy. Unfortunately we've heard so many sirens. We are so glad we decided to stay in for the day. Now to see if we all survive the eclipse tomorrow haha.

I do love to have a lie-in but if my son isn't awake by 7.30am he won't go to bed before midnight so we get up at 7am every day.
Glad you had a more restful day today to recharge your batteries!

Good for you for staying in and relaxing, especially with it being so busy.
