Weekend Away

We had our first long trip away from the safety of our house this weekend. Fortunately it was to another safe house. Our good friends in Maine. They have a mostly gluten free house as well, due to two of them having Celiac Disease as well. Needless to say, it was pretty worry free, which was nice. We haven't really traveled anyway overnight yet since Ethan was diagnosed. Mostly it's because we haven't had the time, but it's also because we wanted to make sure we had a clue to what we are doing. What better way to venture out than to go to another mostly gluten free home!! :)

We had a wonderful time. We really did. Even my husband made the comment "I like it when we come up here honey, your so much more relaxed!" Amazing that we can call a house full of 6 children...5 of them mobile, loud, and crazy..four adults (all of whom their sanity should be questioned), and a dog, relaxing...but it actually was! For us anyway, probably should check back with our friends to get their perspective on it!:)

Even though we had a great gluten free weekend away, we are glad to be back home. Back to the laundry, dishes, dirty floors, messy rooms, and other daily duties that make our house a home. My favorite duty of all...hugging and kissing my children!
