While we are definite homebodies, every once in a while we enjoy a weekend away. One of our favorite places to go is my parents' home. They have 40 acres just outside a beautiful tourist town where there's never a shortage of fun to be had.
This weekend was perfect - we spent Saturday hanging out with my parents, talking a walk along the river, and playing. Then on Sunday, my parents took the boys up the their cabin and left Dan and I alone for 24 hours. We watched movies (The Descendants and Tinker Tailor Sailor Spy in the theater, The Help at home), had an amazing lunch at a brew pub (10 Barrel Brewing), and reveled in the lack of responsibility. And while I never loved farm chores when I lived at home, getting to go back now and bottle feed calves and use the four-wheeler to feed the cows is a lot of fun on the occasional weekend.
Thanks, Mom and Dad, for a great time. It was a perfect winter pick-me-up, and the time both as a family and as a couple is so necessary. We can't wait until the next time!
