Spring Break Getaway!

A little glimpse at our blog lately and you'll see that life has been a bit chaotic for the last few months.  We have been neck deep in house projects since February and we are getting ready to list our house on the market in the next couple of weeks.   It hasn't been ALL work though.  

During Spring Break, we were able to get away for a couple days to rustic cabin camping trip in West Virginia.   There were several other families we knew there, all of whom had kids Adam's age.

   None of whom had any Ellie's age (except for a boy or two), so Ellie made some furry friends... 
and spoiled Rocky a little too much! 😂

And as per usual, she made friends of all ages while she was there! 

Emma also had a great group of friends there...

All these seniors are off to grand adventures in the next few months...

One of her friends (Harlan) opened his mission call to Finland while we were there.   I loved being a part of mission call openings! 

It was great to get away from all the moving stuff for a couple days and just enjoy being outside....

and with friends...

I had fun with my friends too, however we didn't get any pictures of us together, so this one with Adam will have to do. 

Oh yeah, and the food was good too. Ellie and I mostly ate keto while we were there, but we did allow ourselves a couple small cheats.  We were in charge of breakfast, so we had a fruit and yogurt parfait bar.  I actually had some low-carb granola, but she was really excited for a taste of flavored yogurt, something she hasn't had any of in many months. 

With my birthday, Easter, and Ellie's birthday recently, we've cheated more in the last month than we have the entire time we've been on keto.  We are still 95% good, but definitely  need to get back to it in May.  

Really,  this getaway was just what we all needed.  The only thing that would have made it better is if Glen had been able to come too.
