Every summer Chad’s mom takes each set of grandkids for a week, giving all of the parents a break and making fun memories in Panguitch. Chad and I get excited for this week and usually come up with a big list of things that we want to do while the kids are gone and this year was no exception. While the kids are at Grandma’s, they get to sleep out on the trampoline, ride on the Ranger, play in the tree house, and just have a good old time. It’s a pretty good deal for everyone involved, although six weeks of grandkid time is probably a little rough for Grandma Ruth!
Here is what we did while the kids were gone:
Took a trip to Ikea
Went to the gym and running together
Got a pedicure
Went to Lagoon and rode all the big rides
Went on a long, really steep hike that was awesome
Ate a fancy dinner at The Roof
Cried through “The Fault in Our Stars”
Talked to each other without interruption
We missed the kids and were glad to have them back, but it was a really nice break.
It’s good to be reminded that we still like each other after all.
