A Staycation

We had a big storm a few weeks ago that knocked out our power and made our neighborhood nearly unlivable. We decided to go against my cheapskate tendencies and we took the little kids to a hotel (the biggest one was at a friend's house). It had a pool and hot tub inside, an indoor play place and lots of cable tv. It was a super duper treat for us!
Daddy delivered pizza to us. We ate it all over the hotel room!Ahhhh. The life.
He wore himself out swimming and is snuggled into fresh sheets. So sweet!

Daddy went to get milk and cookies which we ate in bed. We had 2 double beds in the room but, of course we woke up with 4 people in our bed. ;-)

We came home to lots of this. Chainsaws for days and so many trees lost. Our grass and my rose bush are getting more sun these days though....



  1. So sorry about your trees, you know how much I love trees, but I am glad you and your house are safe and sound! "The other one" is getting sooooooo handsome. He looks like a character in 50's and 60's story books....he and "That one" are cuties and "This one" is becoming a beautiful young lady!!! Just Me!

  2. Thankfully, none of those trees belonged to us, though I felt sorry for all our neighbors. Many of their trees were 45+ years old... My rose bush is happy, sunny now though!
