last thursday, we departed for a big fat family vacation to the mountains. derek’s parents and his sister’s family stayed in a cabin and our family stayed in a nearby little condo/apartment type setup. nearby like less than 100 yards. it was my fourth weekend vacation in as many weekends.
we kicked off the trip with a giant lego set. i think the plan was that isaac would work on it in the in-between times of doing other stuff. except isaac had it together in no time. he’s a lego savant.
on saturday (after our delicious breakfast spread) we heading into boone and blowing rock for some shopping and eating. we went to cafe portofino for lunch. and took the kids to the incredible toy company. and of course, the mast general store. so. much. candy.
on the ride home, we had to stop at the mast general store again (to replace a toy of one of the cousins that isaac broke). i waited outside by the stream with isaac. he begged to take his shoes off and walk in the water.
anyhoooo… some low lights. i had planned to take the supplies for a quilt i’m making to auction for isaac’s class at the spring fling. it’s due on 4/22. i had it all packed and ready to go. and forgot to actually load it in the car. so. no progress there. i knew it would make for a crazy week, but i could manage. until sunday morning when i stood up from the couch with a horrific pain in my upper back/neck. i could barely turn my head. sewing is not super friendly to the neck and back region, so, well, i was about to have (and still have) an interesting week getting this quilt completed.
it was fun. glad to be home for a good stretch now. and after a few days on the couch and heating pad, i’m feeling a lot better. stay tuned for the quilt…
