Friday. A day for a post of pictures.
Last week we talked about going to the mountains. Then we talked ourselves out of it. Then Stephen was asked to drive to a meeting that would put us only 1.5 hours away from the mountains. We talked ourselves back into going. Boy, are we glad we did.
We stayed with our dear friend, Olivia, who Canaan adores. Her affection is such for Olivia and it makes me smile because instead of trying to say her name she simply calls her, "Girl." She is one of Canaan's favorites and her name is simply, "Girl". Gotta love kids.
We played in the snow, visited old friends, and spent hours building blocks inside a warm little house on the side of a mountain. It was exactly what we could have asked for and more.
Now we are back. A pot of chicken and rice is on the stove, laundry is halfway done, and I am trying to not be sad that we aren't still tucked on that side of the mountain with Girl. Sigh.
Until next time. xoxoxoxo
