Our Spontaneous Weekend
We will go back when the kids are a little bit older to do the Alpine Slides!
"Um, o.k. But we have to stop somewhere to buy clothes for tomorrow."
So after a stop at Target, we check into a hotel for the night (it was 11pm by the time the kids finally settled enough to sleep!). Sunday morning we went to a mall, Old Country Buffet and then to the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth. We had never been to the aquarium, but the kids had a lot of fun. I think their favourite thing was the slide built into a tree and the Great Lakes water system complete with locks that they could open and close to send the boats through!
This weekend was good for me.
I haven't felt like blogging lately because, well, I just haven't.
Life has been a little overwhelming.
But this weekend, just going and leaving everything behind, being out there and enjoying the creation God has given us to enjoy.
It was a wonderful reminder of His love and care for me.
Alexandra's prayer at bedtime last night made me smile, it was something I *knew* but had forgotten. She had finished saying thank you for the number of things she says thank you for and had then proceeded to ask God to hold certain people in His arms.
She paused for a minute and than says "God, please hold everybody in Your arms, cuz they are big enough for everone"
And that's my reminder for the week from my almost 4 year old.
That no matter where I am at, God's arms are big enough!
