Since I knew it would be hard on all of us if we "just stayed home", Papa and I decided that we would take the kids up to Mt. Baker for the long weekend. It was close enough to home that I could drive in to work on Friday, but far enough away that it was definitely still "a weekend away".
And ... seriously a bonus ... we had no internet or cell phone reception. We were less than an hour from home, but the little town we stayed in is kind of tucked into the side of the mountain and doesn't get any reception. (You can get cell reception just 15 minutes down the mountain ... or 15 minutes up the mountain. But, the little town of Glacier loses all cell service. Which ... we thought was GREAT.)
We watched a few movies.
We ate more good food.
