We're Back!

Well, we made it back, safe and sound.  Let me tell you...our trip was awesome!  I feel so refreshed, renewed, I feel like a better person, wife, and more connected than ever with my husband.  We had a wonderful time exploring Oregon, and all it had to offer us with its spectacular views, and fabulous scenery.  Us Mid-Westerners are not used to random mountain ranges, huge rocks sticking up out of nowhere, and ginormous trees everywhere.  I am pretty sure we took over 500 pictures while we were there, and hardly any of them even begin to capture all of God's beauty.  But I am sorting through them and am going to post them anyways! 

While we were gone, Molly was spoiled by Grandma and Uncle Nick.  My Mom came and stayed for a couple of days and then our best friend, Uncle Nick came and stayed with Molly.  I give him a lot of credit, a single, 30 year old guy staying with a 2 year old for 2 days, wow!  He did great!  But I was so happy to see Molly today!  I am one of those people that really only needs a break from my kid for like 2-3 hours, then I am good, so to go for 6 days, I was dying on the way home.  I couldn't wait to get home and see my baby! 

I am caught up on all your blogs, I did read some while away, and the rest tonight.  Sorry for no comments, sometimes when catching up, it's just easier to read all the way through and move on.  All of your kids looked cute for Halloween!  I can't wait to share some pictures with you all!

Way to go, Uncle Nick! LOL :)
I look forward to seeing your pictures! I am the same way....I really don't like to be away from my kids for even a night. But, I'm glad you had such an awesome trip!!!

Glad you had a great time! I bet the views out there were really awesome. Def not used to mountains!! We're used to seeing flat ground! hahaha

I bet it was so good to get back to Molly! 6 days is a long time! I bet she was so happy to see you.

So glad you guys had such a good time. I was just thinking about you this morning wondering if you guys had made it home or not! :) That's so cool that Uncle Nick stepped up like that. I don't even think my Hubby could manage my girls by himself for even a day!

That's so funny too about what you said about being in awe of mountains and trees because that's all I'm used to. I'm sure it would be a shock for me to live anywhere but CA. Boy I'm spoiled, aren't I?
