A Weekend Away

Our family has been suffering through so much sickness lately!  One virus after another...seemingly no end to it all!  All the kids, except Matthew, got sick last week again.  Katelyn and Jimmy were even hallucinating with their fevers...kinda creepy and hilariously funny at the same time.  William also has some bacterial issue that continues to make him sick.  He was on an antibiotic, but now he is sick again.  Not quite sure what the problem is with him yet.  Thank you to those on face book that prayed for our kids!!  God is truly gracious to us!  We would appreciate continued prayers for William's issues to be resolved.

None-the-less...the kids managed to get mostly better by Thursday...Eric's birthday.  Eric had a mission meeting that day and while he was occupied, I planned and packed for two nights away...to celebrate his birthday and our 13th wedding anniversary.

When he came home, I convinced him to go run some errands with me and much to his surprise (good job kids in keeping the secret!!) we kept on driving straight to Jinja to the Kingfisher...a lovely resort on Lake Victoria.

So glad to get away from the sickness and busy-ness that is making us CRAZY!!!

Not quite that good at aiming the camera, but here we are!

Got to watch the sun rise...

And the moon rise! (Set the camera on its timer for this one :)  )

So thankful for this guy... I'm so blessed to have walked the earth as one flesh for 13 years now.  God is so good to me!
