Travelling to the mountains and then to the prairies
My family and I made a whirlwind trip - four out of the ten days of holidays were spent driving us to our destinations (which are opposites on the compass in relation to where we live). We had one day at home between the two trips to give us a chance to do laundry, refill our travel bags and reload the cooler with travel foods. ;o)
Here's a bit of a quick overview at some of the activities we enjoyed ...
insect catching (in this case, it's a praying mantis that hopped aboard my eldest son while he was in pursuit of an orb weaver spider),
all mixed in with catching up with dear friends and family while stuffing ourselves with delicious food. There's nothing like fresh from the garden veggies (thank you, Heather!) and we were lucky enough to have some bounty sent home with us. This is a wonderful time of year to travel! Of course all that travel and fun meant that some of us didn't wait until we got home to start catching up on some much needed sleep. ;o)
I'm still catching up, but I'm re-energized and think I'm more ready after our little break, to tackle the challenges of the new season ahead. Still trying to figure out how September came upon us so quickly. ;o)
