This past weekend we were able to get out of town for a quick visit to Sam's Godmother's place. We got lucky weather wise....it was suppose to be cloudy and rainy the whole time we were there, but other than some rain on Friday, it turned out to be a sunny, beautiful weekend.
Sam and I really enjoy our time there. We've been going on weekend getaways since we met...long before the kids came into the picture.
The kids equally enjoy their time there. Since it isn't pool time yet, the kids had to find other ways to occupy their time. Anthony got to do a little wood carving work with Mike, he really liked that. We took walks around the lush yard, played frisbee, discovered how much fun a leaf blower can be, took a dip in the hot tub, did a little shopping, and went fishing in their backyard stream with the fishing pool Anthony made. I'd say fishing was the highlight of our weekend. Anthony really got a kick out of making his own fishing pole with a large stick, string, and wire. We dug for worms....but no one would put the worm on the hook, so Mama had too. LOL Eventually, Anthony worked up the courage to hook a worm with Jonie's help. We never did catch any fish, but that didn't matter. It was just so awesome watching the kids have a good time.
Hopefully we'll be able to get back that way come summer time when their pool is ready. Those summer trips are always our favorites!
