We got to relax and just spend time together and rejuvenate. We hadn't gotten away just the 5 of us since we've been here in Lima and going almost 4 months without the sun shinning was REALLY starting to get to us. I always had heard that there is about a 5 month period that the sun doesn't really show up here in Lima but I thought "how bad can it be?" Well.... BAD. It's gloomy and overcast everyday and all you want to do is curl up and watch a movie or read but wait.... you have a life to live, HAHA.
Anyway, that was probably the funnest part was just to be outside in the sun. We literally spent every moment outside until the sun set. The minute we turned onto the road near Lima, this huge overcast cloud set in. It was surreal how different the climate was just 45 minutes away.
I posted all the pictures of our trip on Facebook but for those of you who don't have Facebook, here are some of my favorites:
P.S. Thank you Patrick and Sara what a blessing this was to our family!
Oh yeah, at 10.5 months old Liam took his first step-crawl at the hotel. Guess all he needed was some good grass and some sun! Couldn't believe I actually caught it on camera! I screamed so loud I think people thought something was wrong with him.
We signed our kids up for what we thought was a "little kids talent show." They were troopers and got on this HUGE stage and danced away to "All You Single Ladies" Lee and I about DIED. Our kids are AWESOME!
Lee and I played each other in paintball while the kids were napping (don't worry our bungalow was just a few feet away.)
Here is the family picture we tried for about 30 minutes to take and finally just gave up at the end. We all had our ACU gear on.
Maddox talked the ropes-course guy into letting him climb with a rope, he was BESIDE himself excited! We all know Maddox's obsession with ropes:)
