Settled for the Night

We left a little after 7 this morning, and after a nine hour drive, we’re settled into a hotel. We’ll do some shopping tomorrow before heading up into the mountains and our cabin. The drive was pleasant and uneventful. It felt different being in the van versus the bus. We definitely were in much closer quarters, but that just made everything cozier. And yes, I’m enjoying the mountain air.

May you have a blessed evening rejoicing in Jesus!

Joyfully His,
Sarah

Anna planned our meals for the vacation and did an amazing job of preparing them and freezing them.

Back to pillow bags (okay, it’s true, we are fond of our own pillows) and luggage.

A view from the front. Mom and I changed spots so she could rest her back.

The first view of the mountains. It was very hazy tonight, due to wildfires.
A great foursome!

in wisdom hast thou made them all:

  1. Great pictures,as always Sarah! enjoy the trip. on average how much time do you guys spend at home each year? was rather curious. I would love the opportunity to travel. (if i didnt have to constantly plan and pack for it.) ha ha!! šŸ˜‰

    We never know how much time we will travel, but it has roughly averaged being away around 3 months a year.

  2. I noticed that Joseph, John, and Jesse are growing beards. Is there a reason for that.

    Just something different while on vacation.

  3. Were planning a big trip out east this fall and would love some ideas for freezer meals. We have 9 children, some adults and some children. Also, where did you get your trailer?
    Have a wonderful trip!

    We rented a 5×8 cargo trailer from a local trailer business.

  4. Oh don’t talk about the mountains to us level landers.;) It makes me “homesick”. There just ain’t nothin’ better than a good mountain, a cabin, and some country or bluegrass music. Ahh. Sigh. That’s the life.;) šŸ˜‰ Have fun!

  5. Anna ~ if you ever have a moment to post the meals/menu that you used for your family , we would be most grateful. Menu planning is such a challenge ! Blessings ~ HC

  6. Looks like Max Moody’s pillow stack! I remember he had the huge pile of walking pillows in Autumn. He also did that in Spring Days. So funny! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚
