Road Trip!

Well, I didn't do as bad as last time with going 3 weeks without any new posts! But, 2 weeks isn't that great either. Oh well! Take what you can get right?! :)
Last weekend my little family headed on over to Redmond for 2 nights away! It was so wonderful as well as a much needed break from the "norm" here! A friend from church let us stay in their house. It was perfect for us! It was a relaxing weekend of doing whatever we wanted!

On the road again....
We time our trips so we'll be on the road at nap time!
Stopped in Sisters for a break to play at a park!

While in Redmond, we:

Had fun playing with each other, even if it was just sitting on high stools and watching Lily color!

Took much needed rests

Played with the camera

Channeled our inner Tarzan (check out Lily's face in the background!)

Went down slides as fast as we could

Took walks as a family while enjoying God's creation

Marveled at the view from the back patio that God allowed us to see!!
Used every opportunity we had to cuddle with our sweet kids
Enjoying snacks while someone LOVED sitting at the table and not in a high chair
Got to spend about 45 minutes swimming at a pool-which they ALL loved!
Tried to tan our pasty skin (Don't let the lady in the background fool you with her coat on! It wasn't that cold out!)
Played ring-around-the-rosie on the deck as the sun was shining
Enjoyed one last view before heading home....

It was a great getaway with just our little family and some fun memories were made! We also enjoyed an afternoon shopping (mainly sightseeing!) around Sisters and enjoying a yummy lunch there too! The weather was perfect! So thankful we got to get away!
