As you can see Mom and Dad really got into their characters and had fun with the kids ;-)
We went on a lot of hikes together................
Mom and Dad left headed home just a little over a week ago. It was such a fun visit! Since then, I've been caught up in a plethora of activities including work, a wedding, home school, continuing education, kids, canning, a big ol' birthday bash, a trip to the big city, etc. etc.
I took a rare moment out in the kayak on the river today just to enjoy the beautiful day. A carpet of leaves crunched beneath my shoes as I drug her across our neighbors yard to the river. The sun was shining and it was warm enough for shorts and a tank top (which is rare for this time of year). The water was crystal clear and reflected the ever towering trees along the banks. I had just 30 minutes before I had to get ready for my shift, but it was a serene window of escape that felt like eternity.
After that, I think I drove my husband batty wanting to leave early so he could get parts for my new toy but not being ready. Of course we missed the store we needed to get to by an obscure 15 minute window. How does he ever put up with it?! He has to leave early because I want him to, then I'm not ready. Its a much longer story but I will incriminate my self no further ;-)
