This past week, Eric, Hendric and I headed up north for a little R & R. I was just a little excited. This was our first vacation (other than our honeymoon) since we got married 5 years ago!
I might have overpacked for the 3 of us. For 6 days.
There was also a counter full of 9 grocery bags full of food and 4 bags of clothes. Yowza.
We took off to my parents' cabin at Mormon Lake and couldn't wait for some much needed family time.
The afternoon we got there, we just hung out a little and played...
...which of course for my child, means shoveling rocks.
The first full day we took a little hike.
Apparently, we like to play in the dirt.
We drove into Flag the next day to catch a movie, lunch, and a little ice cream.
How can you not love this face?
Later in the week, we did some more hiking. Eric taught Hendric a very important lesson on how to pick flowers for momma.
And more dirt on the face.
I am pretty sure this is one of my favorite. pictures. ever.
It is a perfect shot of who my child is. Contemplative. Discerning. All while carrying a giant stick so he can smash anything at any moment.
Our last full day, we took Hendric to fly his first kite. I thought he was going to go crazy with excitement.
Afterwards, Hendric was so wound up from all the fun that he had a harder time getting to sleep for his nap. So Eric went in to just lay down with him to see if it would help--even though he wasn't "really tired."
10 minutes later :)
What a saint.
Love these boys.
