This past weekend we took a "whirlwind" trip.
The type of whirlwind trip where we picked up the children from school, told them they had ten minutes to pack two of whatever they needed, and to meet us in the car. An hour later we left, oh well, all excited for a spur of the moment adventure.
A road trip to see the trees.
A road trip to see a town most of us had yet to lay eyes on.
A road trip that would land us in the midst of a Wool Festival.
Convenient or planned? I'll never say.
With four chidren trips on the whim can be a bit, challenging? But, we did it. We all had favorite moments over the time we were gone.
Even despite the freeway closure at eight o'clock p.m. on Sunday that provided a fourty five minute delay, the "oops, I forgot I had homework" and the funny sound the car was making...We did it.
We saw some beautiful country and spent time as a family and really how can you beat that?
Any "whirlwind" in your lives these days?!!??
