Vacation update

Well, it's Saturday, and that means it's time to vacation the condo and head back to my moms house. This trip has gone by super quick and I'm not ready to go!

I'm bummed because due to my foot injury we didn't get to do a lot of the things I hoped we would. Shawn took the kids out yesterday and they did some fun nature hikes and saw some pretty things, and I stayed back at the condo and read a book. It was actually nice to have some quiet time, but I wished I could have gone with them. I was kind of bummed about that.

And speaking of my foot, it doesn't appear to be broken, but it's pretty bruised. I wrapped it and kept it elevated and iced and the swelling came down and now it's just black and blue from the middle of my foot to my ankle. I can basically walk on it now, it's just a little sore.

Last night we went to the drive in and it was awesome! It's one of the few old fashioned drive in theaters left and it was really fun to go there! The kids had never been to a drive in movie before, so it was a fun adventure for them. It didn't start until 9:30, so I was skeptical that all three kids would stay awake for it, but they did and they loved the movie. We had a really great time.

Also, and it seems weird that I got this far down in the blog post to mention it, but today is actually our 17th wedding anniversary! This trip is our celebration this year. I kind of chuckled this morning. Clarissa woke up with a bloody nose that had to be dealt with and we're running around trying to get everyone fed and packed up and it was a bit chaotic and in the middle of it we kind of went "oh, hey! Happy anniversary!" It wasn't roses and gifts and a fancy date night, but I actually kind of love that we're spending our anniversary this way. I love that we're navigating the chaos of a vacation with three kids together today. I love the life we have built together and the family we have created. It might be a bit chaotic at times, but there is no one I would rather navigate the chaos of life with than Shawn. No matter what happens in life, everything is easier and more fun with Shawn by my side. I love him and I'm happy to be celebrating 17 years of marriage with him today.

So now I've got to get back to the chaos and get everyone packed up and get on the road. We're thinking of taking the long way home and stoping in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for lunch. It's really pretty there, and the drive is beautiful.

Today I'm grateful for a beautiful crazy life. Pictures will follow later. :)
