And I smell great too! (You know what I'm talking about.)
We've been in Collingwood for a couple of days. Just a little mini-vacation for Hubs, Little Boo and me. (The Teen is with his mom.) Thursday and Friday were mostly vegging in our room and playing in the pool and hot tub. There was a lot of screen time too, as our plugged-in family travels with 2 smart phones, 2 laptops, an iPad, and a 3DS. But that was in the evenings, when we just hung out together doing our own things, and not worrying about housework or cooking or bedtime schedules or work or anything.
Yesterday we did venture into town for a bit. It was bitterly cold. Like November on the North Atlantic cold. The wind was high and it cut like ice coming off Georgian Bay. But we went walking some trails along the water for as long as we could stand. It was lovely.
Today we went to the Scenic Caves. The sun was bright and warm, but the air was still crisp, and oh-so-clean. I had my boys outside enjoying nature for more than 3 hours! Mommy was very pleased.
We did the suspension bridge:
|It's a long way down|
|But what a view!|
Fed the trout:
And almost got eaten by a bear:
|Well, ok. Not really.|
We finished our visit with a round of mini golf and a visit to the playground.
This was definitely the most fun and the most exercise we've had in ages. It was so good to get away and spend some time together away from the stress of work and keeping up the home. Throw the schedules out the window and go with the flow!
We need to get away together more often.
