One of my goals this year is to hike more (6 times to be exact). Last week was a disappointing week for me. And I've generally been feeling taxed by our hectic schedule. Sooo, Brian and I planned a very inexpensive two day getaway.

Day One was spent hiking at Obed Wild and Scenic River - don't you just love that name? We hiked to the top of -something- and it was beautiful. Otis and Colt came with us and got some much needed exercise. We saw hawks circling at the top and felt like we were living the Discovery series Life.

My boys. Love the tongues.

I am so very strong!

The night of Day One and the day of Day Two were spent at my parent's lakehouse. We have enjoyed many family get togethers and holidays at the lakehouse. But this past week, the lake house was uninhabited. We didn't do much other than just be - and not worry about work or house stuff.
It was a refreshing couple of days. Writing about it makes me want more :)

at it again

One of my friends in small group got on to me last week because I haven't blogged this year. So, here I am - blogging. And asking myself how long it will last this time.

Blogging is not some huge goal or priority for me - but I would like to be more consistent. Part of my thinks I'll be a more consistent blogger when I have something to write about -- namely children. Another part of me thinks I may never be consistent here.

But here I go again. The children thing doesn't seem to be happening on my time schedule, so maybe I'll take this time as blog-training.
