I took a few days vacation from work to enjoy the last days of autumn, to get away from the big city, to enjoy my family and kiss my little ones more often.
Then on Friday my husband fell off a ladder and broke his ribs. So there goes my vacation plans. But we still got away for a day into the mountains and breathed the cold crisp air, looked at beauty and thanked God for his generosity with the colors of autumn. My husband stayed in a hotel room and rested with our 9 month old baby girl, while I went on long walks with my 5 year old, and my 2 1/2 year old. We had a nice time.
On our way back we stopped at a little river where the trees were majestically golden, after resting a bit and smelling the wonderful scent of dry leaves and grass, wet earth and rocks we continued home.
Its nice to be home and nothing makes you appreciate your own bed, and your own space as going away into a tiny hotel room, where we all had to share one room, and the not so comfortable beds of the hotel.
So everything went well, if I don’t count that the trip was cut short due to my husbands injury, my 2 year olds crying and wanting to go home in the middle of the night, my 5 year old throwing up on our way home all over my car, and the baby not wanting to sit in her car seat, and cried every time she had to sit in there.... But it was nice to get away... Thank God I am home...:)
