A picture may be worth a thousand words, but sometimes it paints an inaccurate story.
We went up north this past weekend to celebrate Todd's 40th birthday. Judging by this picture it would appear that we had a calm, serene start to the weekend. This picture does not show the whining and crying and fighting and nonsleeping children for the three hour ride to the cabin. It also does not show the absolute downpour of rain that occured minutes after this picture was taken.
In the end I just wish my dear hubby had the relaxing, wonderful birthday weekend he deserved. Instead he spent the whole time trying to make everyone else happy and trying to fix everything. I'm afraid he was more drained when the weekend was over then when it started.
P.S. You were right to stop at 4. ;)
