Getting Away

Our weekend get-away to visit Wife's family went well, and so fast! Her brother just moved to a nice, big house with lots of room for us, but it is an additional hour's drive, making the previously 3+ hour drive much more daunting. Sure, it's not like we're driving to Branson Missouri, but still, with 2 kids in the back seat, that especially on the way home we do not want to fall asleep because then they won't go to sleep on time at night, it felt like far enough!

Highlights included playing on a trampoline and swingset, not yet picked up by the former home-owners, and a 1137 picture slideshow (Brother's girlfriend went a bit crazy with our new digital camera!). Our Baby Girl could have lived on that trampoline, and pretty much did for the two days we were there. The first morning she had a complete meltdown when we wouldn't let her go out before breakfast since it was just too early. The next morning, the first thing she says to me is, "We go outside for a little bit? Me no bother neighbors." How could I resist? Let me just say, who needs coffee when they can wake up with a good work-out on the trampoline?

how precious! It's amazing that little things like a trampoline can do such wonders.

Oh, lawdy, kids can steal your heart away, can't they? Glad you all had a good weekend.
