Vacation Blues

We were out of town last week for a vacation in Donnelly, Idaho. 
It's about 2.5 hours north of Casa de Shifley.
Getting back into the swing of things this week hasn't been an easy transition. 
At least for me.
I really enjoyed the time away. 
I have been eating way too many sweets to help me cope. 

And maybe some crying in the shower.

It's not going well. 

Maybe I am missing the sweet, sweet 'stache? Yes, it's gone. This is one of the last times it graced my face. I think Hayden knew I was going to shave it off and that's why she looks so very ecstatic.

Maybe I'm missing spending all day with these two characters? 

Maybe I'm missing spending all day with the mother of the characters? 

Maybe I'm missing start a fire when it's 100 degrees outside?
OK. Let's be honest, I wouldn't say I am missing this one. 

Maybe I'm missing seeing Hayden pose for me after she enjoyed a s'more? 

Maybe I'm missing having ice cream in the after lunch?

Maybe I'm missing spending the afternoons on the water?
Kyle and Hayden weren't too upset to try out the boat slide. 

Maybe I'm missing taking naps whenever I felt like it? 

Maybe I'm missing going on "serious hikes" with these two? They definitely had their game faces on. The woods were not prepared for what they saw that day. 

Looking forward to our next vacation and some new maybes. 

Take care. Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you soon.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


  1. Looks like a great time was had by all.
    That boat slide!
    107 here today...

  2. That does look like a fun trip. We don't get scenery like that here in Florida. Have a great time at the Roger Clyne solo show. I'm pretty jealous, but I will hopefully see one eventually. Hey if you meet him you can say you know the kid who requested 'I-70 Westbound' in Atlanta.

  3. Sun, water, naps, treats, family - now that's a vacation worthy of the name :)

  4. Like Jenny said....!

    I wish you'd give over, Matt. I wish I'd had lovely kids and nice places to visit. Heehee hope you've settled back in the work routine.

  5. Sadly there will be no vacation for us this year. It's tough coming back from them though; kind of depressing. Set up a kiddie pool, invite Miss Frizz and drink a tall cold one.

  6. The scenery where you all were looks lovely. In 100F doing anything would SUCK. Random naps rule.

  7. Looks like fun! Hope you adjusted ok this week. It's not easy crashing down from a fun vacay.
