Hello Alabama

Goodbye beautiful Northwest.
I'm off for the weekend kiddo free to go see Doug in Alabama.

It was a much needed weekend. He was on his 4th week of being gone and at first I was doing fine being a mom 24 hours a day then after the 3rd week and the kiddos being sick for 2 of those weeks I was starting to loose my mind. I'm not sure how single moms,  moms who's husbands travel or husband that work more the X amount of hours do it? Doug has 3 day weekends and is home in the afternoon during his work week. I'm a totally spoiled brat I know.
What I am trying to say is that I needed a break after 4 weeks of Doug being gone and after my vacation he will be home in 2 weeks

My first day in Huntsville we drove out to the Cathedral caverns. They are amazing!! If you live out here and haven't gone you HAVE too!!

This was one of my favorites. The bottom half is water and reflecting the top. So perfect. 

This is beginning of one of the stalagmite forest.

Two very relaxed parents

Heading back out.

On Sunday we went to space Camp...kinda

Every part of this museum was amazing. Not only is everything about 1000 times bigger then I thought it would be it was also 1000 times cooler.


The weather was beautiful the whole time I was here...until the morning I was suppose to leave and return to my Little's.
This happened.

Thunderstorm warnings, tornado warnings, rain, wind, hale and some more rain and wind.
My flights were canceled and here I sit typing on my computer for 8 hours, watching movies, the OWN network, eating snacks Doug had stashed in his room and drinking beer.
It was a perfect day!
Thank you mom for hanging with the kiddos an extra day and Thank you Jen for helping with the kiddos.
THANK YOU Alabama for your freaky weather patterns and granting me my
 perfect do NOTHING day wish.


  1. Sounds like the perfect day to me!! I am so glad you got to get away. I don't think you are spoiled at all. 4 weeks alone with my kids would leave me....well....dead!!! Glad you had a great time!

  2. How totally awesome that you had that time together!

  3. Sounds like a nice little vacay to visit your man. Good for you.


I love comments!
