The weather was so gorgeous, and I was so thankful to have more time to enjoy the children now that the auction was complete, we decided to spend a couple days out in The Valley. We’ve gotten pretty good at getting packed up, since we take generally the same items every time.
We headed out on Wednesday morning, planning to come home sometime on Thursday. I took along the yarn and instructions for the lapghan I wanted to work on. The children took their imaginations. This is one of those times where pictures speak more eloquently that what I might choose to write.
We all came home relaxed, rested, and at peace. I was intrigued that I gave the children the option of getting home before traffic, or staying late, and they chose late unanimously. We played games, watched another setting sun, and headed home, happy to see Dad, but ready for our next visit to Paradise.
