Shortly after I was released from the hospital, John got a letter telling him he'd been selected to serve on the UPPAC board. They are a panel of educators that decide whether teachers who make poor choices get to keep their licenture, or diciplined if need be--you know--the teachers that make the news. He had pretty much decided that he had not been chosen because he applied forever ago. So, he was pretty excited to be chosen. Congratulations, honey! Anyways, his first meeting/training was on August 12th, before school began. Because I had a doctor's appointment the following Monday, we decided to make a mini family vacation out of our weekend. With everything that happened this summer, family time with our children did not. While we were waiting for John to finish his meetings at the State Office of Educaton, I decided to pass the time taking a few snapshots of our kids outisde.

The next morning we packed a sack lunch and headed to Bridal Veil Falls. We have driven by the falls hundreds of times, but never stopped and walked the trail to see them up close. It was beautiful! The kids loved getting their feet wet.
It was a great weekend, and I think a good time was had by all. We left Mr. Z's company on Sunday afternoon and went to stay with our friends the Mannings. They made the best homemade pizza for us with all the fixings! We love visiting with them. Monday I had two doctor appointments which went well. Not released from them yet, but heading in that direction. :)
We said our goodbyes to the Manning family and on the way home, the kids got a hold of my camera and were entertaining themselves. :)
It was a fun, adventurous, much needed weekend with our children. I'm just sad we don't have any pictures to help the kids remember. Guess we'll just have to go again sometime! :)
