Well folks, as of now, no one is throwing up, the kids are at the grandparents', and we are packed to go. Yesterday we had to cancel our first reservation to avoid a major last minute cancellation fee. But this morning we booked a great room at another Bed and Breakfast that I think we'll like even better.

So, we're off. Thanks to those of you who prayed for me and my silly disappointment. There definitely are worse things that could've happened. Yet even in our silliness, God still shows us grace-abundant grace.

As long as no one else gets sick, we're going to be gone for two whole days...hiking, eating good food, sleeping and BEING QUIET!

It's been too long.

God showed us major grace in still allowing us to go. He didn't have to and I know it.

So I'm going to enjoy it!


  1. We went away last weekend for the first time since Aaron's been born and it was SO wonderful! Sleeping in, staying up later (which really wasn't much later), eating uninterrupted, going to stores and restaurants we don't have in our town, etc. ENJOY!!

  2. Sounds like a great trip! I'm so glad you got to go!!

  3. So glad you two got a chance to get away. We loved having the children here. They were great and so much fun!!
    Love you both,
    Grandma and Grandpa
