A Day Away....

So the Mr. has been working extra side jobs for the past few months. And while we are Thankful to God for the extra income, we have been super busy with it all.

So for the Mister's birthday we decided to spend a day away.   So last Friday, we had planned  on getting everything all ready and packed when we had an extended family emergency.  The Mr. had landed another side job that he was sure he would have done Friday night, but as circumstance would have it. It wasn't done until mid Saturday morning. 

I'd say around 11am Saturday morning we finally were headed out to our favorite place to be. Lancaster County.  We arrived to the our camper, made sure the heat was working and did a quick set up. We can only stay one night b/c we have no access to water right now at the campground.  But that's OK, we only needed one night/day to spend as a family and get some good quality time in. :)

We went for dinner, did a Wal-Mart run and the back to camper for games, snuggling and a few hours of Little House on The Prairie. :)

Sunday morning around 6:30 am we awoke to the heater turning on and off. That translates to, we ran out of propane!! Burr... we headed off to get more before the kids realized it was cold in the camper! :)  After coming back with the propane for heat, we had our coffee outside, while Amish buggy after Amish buggy drove past, as they headed to their church services.

We then woke the kids and headed out to church ourselves. What a wonderful time of refreshment!!!  We were invited to stay for a lunch fellowship and had a great time.

We went for a hike in the brisk air, headed back to our home away from home for a wee little nap, and then packed up to head home again.

But for dh's birthday we stopped at Cracker Barrel for supper, and we're met by dh's cousin and his family.

All in all we had  a wonderful weekend. We came home with 14 gallons of raw milk.  And refreshed souls.

 Isaiah 61:10
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.


From My Heart to Yours!
