Last summer John found a great little cabin in the mountains and where we vacationed, without Whitney. It was strange not to have her a long. There were so many times I wanted to turn to her and tell her something, but I took hunderds of pictures instead. I'm not sure what happened after we returned, but I never posted the photos. I never even sent them to Whitney. I'm a terrible mother.
So I am finally pulling myself together and edited all the photos (my new lightroom knowledge is very helpful). One of the best things about lightroom is that it drastically cuts my culling time. That is what was the worst part for me, sorting through the hundreds and hundreds of images to find the ones I love the most. I should probably just take fewer images, but clearly that won't happen so it is nice to have an expedited process. I have posted and backdated our week in installments and I have linked the posts down below.
Having the site be down last week has also spurred me to get all the images from 2013 posted so that I can have a blog book made, thus allowing me to have another back up of our documented lives.
We spent a week high in the mountains, exploring, fishing, fighting (because we are normal, even on vacation), eating, and being together. It was wonderful. I especially loved that all the modern convienences were still available, but in a rustic mountain setting. I even placed a quick order on Amazon (we had a few essentials break) and was delighted to see a UPS truck come up the dirt road. It's pathetic I know, but there it is.
Our vacation happened just after I was given permisison to start walking again after my ankle surgery, you might remember that I broke and severely tore things: here. I was off the scooter thankfully and able to move around slowly and careful. I spent most of our time in the cabin with Loaf, while John took the children hiking and fishing. It wasn't perfect, but it was still wonderful.
If the pictures are around the cabin I took them, but everywhere else the photos were taken by one of the girls. They were so wonderful to lug the camera along and get some wonderful shots for me.
