We were away last week visiting with my family and spent the weekend in Maryland at my brother-in-law’s family’s “cabin.” It’s actually a house, but it is out in the woods with very few neighbors, so I think it still counts. We had so much fun “camping.” We did it up with campfires and s’mores and walks in the woods and even threw in some ATV riding (don’t worry, B was NOT riding alone, far, fast, or without a helmet) and wild animals for good measure. Oh and we got to hang out with my super, duper, uber adorable niece! Such a welcome break from city life.
Here’s a look, with some photos courtesy of my sister’s father-in-law who made sure we all had a wonderful time.
In addition to all of that fun, the boys also had their first motel experience and were thrilled with continental breakfast. Plus we spent time with my best friend from college and her family, who are really like family to us. Our kids always get along so perfectly even though we only see them a few times a year. We returned to the city around 2am on Monday morning, after an uneventful (6.5 hour) drive, feeling refreshed and renewed. Even though every aspect of the trip wasn’t easy, it was well worth it.
