Our weekend away was lovely. The boys were happy and good for their grandparents. Brad and I had great conversations; read some books; (I) wrote; we ate at a great restaurant; saw a good movie (Slumdog Millionare -- a Bollywood romance of sorts); met some interesting people who we were able to have nice rambling conversations with; saw some "old" friends; listened to some encouraging lectures; and discovered a bird who can mimic chainsaw noises spot-on. It was a bit difficult to return to "real-life" though we love the boys. Thank you to all of you who prayed for us to be refreshed by this vacation away together -- It was very very good for us. Thank you, Nancy and Tom, for loving us (the boys) like this for us.
