Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Recharging the Batteries

You know how there are times you just need to get away & recharge? Mr.Fix~It & I did just that this past weekend.  We’ve been trying to work in a weekend camping with Rachel & Adam for months.  We decided on this past weekend then,  found out one of Mr. Fix~It’s Missouri relatives would be camping in state & we decided to join them on Thursday night.….with Rachel & Adam& Hayden, Erika & Chris & little ones, Mr. Fix~It’s parents…a brother & his wife…joining us over the weekend.  It was a blast!  We had the first night with just his Aunt & Uncle.  It’s been years since he (or I ever) have had one on one time with them. Boy have we been missing out! Such warm and loving people.  A campfire, bottle of wine and chatting till nearly midnight. That night alone made the trip.

The others trickled in over Friday & Saturday.  We all joined more family members at Wagner’s Village Inn Oldenburg In. for one of the best chicken supper’s I’ve had in a long time. Super kid friendly, they had tiny table for Isaiah & Hayden, books, crayons etc.

Back at the campfire, Rachel decided to pop some 5 minute Jiffy popcorn…
