Just Half The Family

Ryan had been gone the week before to Orlando for some church business meetings, and I missed him in a bad way. (more than normal for me) Most of the time when he says he's going off for a few days, whether it is for church business, or hunting, etc, I'm usually pretty great with it. Don't get me wrong, I love my man, but I love having that break to read, watch what I'd like to watch on tv, if I want to see a girlie movie, go for it, etc. And if the girls and I want to have cereal for dinner, who cares? You get the drift... anyway. He went to do a wedding ceremony for his cousin in TN practically as soon as he came home, and I ended up not being able to go because of Chesley's volleyball schedule. (life of a teen...) 

So when Sunday morning rolled around, I was still kind of missing him. After church, it was such a pretty day that we took the top and doors off the Jeep and headed out with #3- Emileigh. The others had gone with various people in the church for the afternoon, so it was just the three. Half the fam...Three peas in a pod... The three amigos...The three musketeers. You get the drift. I enjoy going out in the Jeep with my husband. Mainly because he loves it. And I love being with him. 
If you like my cap, (it's got a teal and yellow cross on it) I got it from Staci  @ The Picky Cricket. Super crafty and talented gal. Love her lots! Go check out her FB page here and like it! 

So it was crazy windy, hence the hair wrapping around my cute cap! We rode wherever the rode took us, which at each turn Emileigh said "where are we going?" or "Are we lost?" Gotta love kids. We weren't lost, but found ourselves in Guntersville State Park. We love it there. Went to the lodge, so therefore, Ryan had to get his piece of pecan pie, Em had chocolate ice cream, and me...basket of fried okra. :) While riding around the park, Ryan let Em take the wheel a bit (under extreme supervision) She's a natural driver. :)

Then we went looking for the deer. I think that's the whole family's favorite part. I got a little nervous with the doors off, the deer were pretty close to the road. (Deer is closer than she appears) Bahaha! She was beautiful. 

Ryan of course acted like he had food in his hand, leaning across me, I just knew that deer was going to come get in the Jeep with us. lol She just checked us out really well, and then paid no more attention to us.

It was a much needed time with my husband and as an added bonus, we got some alone time with Em. With four girls, it's hard to get one on one time with them much. So when we can get it, we cherish it. 

What's something you like to do with your hubby, or little ones on the spur of the moment? Most of the time, the free things are the most precious...don't you think?

Enjoy the Journey!
