I happened to find a last minute reservation for a yurt at a state park along the coast (which seriously never happens! You have to plan a yurt trip months in advance!) and after visiting family for a few days, we went to the coast. The yurt was super fun - kids loved it, and I loved that we didn't have to set up/tear down a tent, plus the mattresses were actually pretty comfy...and bonus: there was electricity. It was a super short trail to the beach, and if it hadn't been so windy, we would've spent our entire time ON the beach. As it was, we still spent quite a few hours there, so no complaints except that I was cold the entire time. It's kind of a shock to go from 90-100 degrees to high temps in the 60's or low 70's!
Now we are home. I don't even want to look at the house or the mountains of laundry! The kids are already fighting and beating each other. But it feels good to be home!
