I took last week off. A lot happened which I will post about later, but man did I need a bit of time to wrap my head and life around what was going on. I will say, everyone is ok and we are moving forward and that is all that matters!
Our family was able to get away for the weekend and spend some time up in the mountains on my grandparents property. It was a much needed getaway. We took off early Saturday morning and came back on Monday afternoon. It was great to get our camper out and I was incredibly impressed with my ability to get everyone packed up and showered and on the road in under 2 hours!
Once up there we set up camp, ate some lunch and the boys hopped on the ATV’s. Our little guy is doing really well on the trails and although his ATV is governed, he has really good control and is a very cautious rider.
I grew up camping and most of the time my parents really liked to rough it. We had a little tiny pop up camper that we would stay in, out in the middle of nowhere often and at one point my parents also owned a 100+ year old cabin about 15 miles into the deep dark wilderness accessible safely only by ATV’s or hiking. Seclusion and being one with nature is something that my dad loves, so when I was 16 and my dad brought home a travel trailer with all the amenities of home, I was pretty excited! Since then we have also purchased and renovated our own travel trailer and now instead of roughin’ it camping, I go “glamping” and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
