Dave and I are celebrating our fifteenth wedding anniversary this weekend!
We were able to get away to a little bed and breakfast about an hour away from our house while my mom and dad watched the kids. You can tell I live in the city when I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of driving through the countryside
The hosts of our Bed & Breakfast were so nice. We chose this Bed & Breakfast as President Abraham Lincoln himself “lunched and lodged” there. I love historical facts like that! This building started out as 2 small rooms upstairs and 2 small rooms down stairs (you can tell from the one picture how two rooms are at the top of the stairs in one direction), but then it was made an inn with 30 extremely small rooms! It now has 9 bedrooms with a common sitting area, eating area, basement (that used to be a cellar!) for watching videos and eating snacks, and a front porch and back area to sit and relax.
We even had cookies in our room, but there was only one left when I remembered to take a picture!
We walked around the town, took selfies, ate dinner out, and spent an hour talking and praying for our kids. It was a great time. Then we spent time unwinding and watching a movie–while I caught up on a little blogging. But I did stay off the computer almost all day!
Here you see one of the biggest monuments that is in our nation of an Indian.
On Saturday, we have more relaxing plans of wandering around the town and then heading back home to pick up four of our children from grandma’s and grandpa’s house and our oldest child from her first week away from home. She went to church camp for the first time this past week.
While she was gone, I finally finished the quilt I was supposed to finish a long time ago. She will be very happy when she sees her bed!
After our Fourth of July busy week, it has been a little more laid back the past two weeks which was nice and necessary–so we could get caught up on house work!
The children did have VBS two weeks ago and two doctor visits (eye appointment and dentist appointments), and we also got to spend time with Dave’s brother from California. We went to Dairy Queen with him and played some basketball. I took some of the pictures we had taken of him and our family and made them into a birthday collage for him.
