Even though we are HUGELY tight on money right now with our extra adoption expenses (Haiti is much more expensive than our original adoption from Hong Kong was going to be)... I managed to squeak out a small bit a rented a cabin for us for a few days. It's only about 1 1/2 hours away from home, but feels like a true getaway. It's a very cute and comfy cabin with all the amenities of home: Two bedrooms, a loft with two twins, huge great room, dining area, kitchen (we brought all our own food), laundry, sunroom, and a big wrap around porch.
Additionally it's on the grounds of a riding stables! The kids have LOVED seeing the horses every day!
We ate out once (though the place I had really wanted to go was only open on weekends - we found a buffet that the kids loved), and ordered pizza in once.
There was an awesome "farm dog" who came daily with one of the stable workers and who gave the kids a great workout!
They got to do one trail ride!
And we did get to see some deer one morning out the back!
Today's our final full day and we leave to go back tomorrow, but it's been JUST what we needed. The perfect small getaway full of relaxation and family time. I've even gotten some light reading and a bit of work done while here!
