Last week we got away to the cottage for about 8 days… and lucky for us the weather was amazing! We usually are stuck with rain. We relaxed, swam, boated, visited our property, rode the ATV, and hosted some friends for a few days. Alex was a real trooper when we went over to our land – we did a little clearing! 5 whole trees! That’s huge when you are with a 3 year old, and well, your wife is me. Also he went the majority of the trip in his undies or his swimming trunks! We are almost there. It was in all a great time away. And as strange as it sounds, it was nice to spend so much time with Alex! Since I work full-time, and Alex goes to the sitter most days (except in the summer – then he halves his time with Matt), I miss so much. But that week away we got to really just reconnect. I had started a listing of all the fun things I wanted to post about, but I’ve somehow misplaced it… but that’s ok – just know it was a great time. I really learned a hard lesson on the way home though. We were on the back roads, being detoured all over the place due to construction – and after finding yet another detour, I had it – and said the “f word” – and guess who else said the word? You got it… Not cool.
