Our Fun Filled Weekend

This was kind of a bitter sweet weekend for me. Paul was home! But I knew it wouldn't last. So, while he was here we had a lot of fun! Paul got in late Friday night and I made him one of his absolute favorite meals, Lasagna! It was so wonderful to just sit and talk with him. We talked about anything and everything. We do talk to each other everyday, but that's on the phone or a video chat which just isn't the same.

On Saturday we all kinda slept in, mostly me. Once we were all ready we headed down to Bridal Veil Falls for a picnic and hike. Bridal Veil Falls is a very beautiful place that has 2 parks next to it. So for the picnic we went to Nuns park.

As you can see, we went the easy route and just got fast food.

After our wonderful picnic was over we headed to the play area just down the road! We ALL had fun there!

After about an hour or so of playing we decided to go hike up the path to the falls. It's a very easy paved trail so it wasn't too difficult for the girls. As I said before, the falls are beautiful and the girls had a blast!

Here are some more pictures taken throughout the day!

I don't know how many of you have tried and tried to get one good shot of all your kids, I assume most of you have, but there's always at least one of them who doesn't want to cooperate. In the picture above, Amanda isn't looking at me, Ashley is slouching and Eden was crying but managed a smile just at the right moment. So, no this isn't a great picture of them and I took several more trying to get at least ONE good shot. Paul was even standing behind me trying to get the girls to look up and smile, with no luck. I got enough shots to do head swapping, but I'm feeling a little lazy and didn't do it. For me being a photographer, I think it's kinda pathetic that I have a hard time getting good shots of my own kids.

Back to more pictures of the day!

The girls really loved having their dad home again!

We took Paul to the airport Sunday early evening. I kept telling myself I wouldn't cry. Then as I was hugging him good-bye I could feel the tears trying their hardest to make my mascara run, but I fought them back. I didn't want to make things anymore difficult by crying, so I was strong and held them back till Paul was about 15 feet away from me. I did my best to wait till I was back in the car before I really let loose.


I just wish the government would decide exactly what their doing with the whole "bail out" stuff. Our realtor was telling us that with all the confusion, people aren't buying because they don't know if they can. I just wish the house would sell.

I am so glad that you got to be together as a family again. Man, that would be so hard. It looks like you made the most of your time though.

I hope all of this financial nonsense goes away soon too. We seriously pray every night that you guys will be able to sell your house.
