Weekend Getaway

We had such a great weekend away!  We spent some time at a friend’s cabin and had tons of fun.  There were six families total and it is truly hard to describe the mix.  We are all totally different but when we get together, it just works and hilarity is sure to ensue.  There were times we were just plain silly and laughed til we cried, and other times where we talked for hours over some pretty serious stuff.  The kids got to fish and swim and play and get dirty and just be kids.  It was just a fun weekend spent with people we love.  Despite the fact that I am super exhausted from staying up way too late every night and feel fat from eating WAY too much, my spirit is filled beyond capacity.  Here are a few of the hundreds of pictures I took.

Everything’s all messed up!!  This week, I’ll admit, I didn’t put a lot of thought or effort into planning our Family Fun Night.  We are going out of town tomorrow so our normal night didn’t work out and I just didn’t get around to planning something until today at, gasp, 5:00pm.  So, I stole borrowed from the creative genius of Heather Whittaker’s Backwards Night and threw together a crazy messed up meal!  The table was set with all the dishes upside down, the chairs were all backwards, we drank “7-downs” and, of course, we ate dessert first!

Noah, in the spirit of the evening, ate his upside-down

We didn’t have any backwards, upside-down, inside-out or otherwise activities planned, so we just went outside and had an impromptu waterfight, because, well, you just can’t go wrong with one of those!

It took Alden a little while to get what he was supposed to do with the water bottle.  Guess he was thirsty!

Man down!  Man down! Noah took full advantage! The happy, drippy bunch
