we had us a crazy couple of weeks...the last week the oldest was a high school student.
full of fun stuff for her.
what a feeling of accomplishment to have raised a child through graduation.
i never realized i would feel that way.
we've done good so far.
two days after graduation we had a wedding at our house.
ang is one of my oldest friends.
we've been through a lot together.
i've babysat her kids on and off and they are just family.
she met the man of her dreams and they let the farm be the place they said their i do's.
it was cool.
and it was perfect.
there's something to be said for getting hitched when your a little older.
you're a little wiser.
and your wedding is funner.
two words...backyard barbecue.
i'm thinkin we're going to encourage the 3 girls to do the same.
maybe with a band.
so then a day after the wedding the graduation party.
family, treats, and a wahoo for mads!
the man and i were ready to escape for a minute or two.
so we decided to go up to one of our favorite spots and grab a hamburger.
on the way up the canyon we were talking about the farm chicks trip.
it was this time of year.
it was beautiful the whole way up.
rainy, green, lush, beautiful.
it really was the perfect trip.
then i said well maybe we should just take a mini vaca right now.
and to my surprise he said yes.
so we stayed the night here.
no toothbrush, change of clothes, nothing.
but they have comfy robes and we didn't care.
we put those things on and sat on the balcony and watched some deer
while we drank hot cocoa and talked for a while.
it was much needed.
i would highly recommend it.
we have to take advantage of having an 18 yr old while we can.
she's leaving us, you know.
so now on to summer!
hope yours is rockin so far,
