I gave up blogging during vacation. That was the closest thing to writing I was doing and I decided I wanted a complete break from "work."

Of course, Mackenna going over the handle bars of her bike and ending up injured changed up our vacation a little. Out was whitewater rafting. In was mani-pedis. Though we probably would have had our nails done anyway! But she couldn't go down the water slides or play tennis or do a lot of the things we had planned. A good thing we plan on going back next year! We see a specialist tomorrow. Fingers crossed this won't impact her swimming too much!

Outside of the bike accident, the vacation was exactly what I needed. Relaxing rather than running around. Hanging out as a family. We met up a couple of times with friends that were there. Watching fireworks on the Fourth of July. Fun times.

On the drive home, we stopped by my parents' house. The three kidlets decided they wanted to spend the weekend there so we were kidless until Sunday. That meant going out to brunch on Saturday after our jog and just spending time together (and with the furbabies)

Now it's back to the same old same. Hubby is back to his traveling. I'm back to my writing and driving the kids all over the place! But now we're not so tired! A little R&R can make such a difference!

Hope you had a great Fourth and week!

Sounds like fun, except for the injury. Crossing fingers for good news from the specialist. Have a great day

Didn't do much around here on the forth! Went and spent time with my sister's the weekend before. Older sister had a stroke in her right eye and lost here vision there. They say it want come back. I have been working on my deck, cleaning it up to put finish on it. Hopefully I will be able to do that tomorrow if it don't rain again. That is all its done around here lately.

You had a little more excitement than you anticipated.

R&R is still a pipe dream for me. I'm looking forward to a little down time in the winter though.

Hope MacKenna heals quickly.
