story time together...

this past week was a fun one for the whole family. tiffany visited with hannah and issaac while jason was training in florida. tiffany is an adventurist! a 12 hour drive in the car alone with two kids doesn't scare her. either does a year without a husband around to help with the crazy daily duties of being a parent. jason deploys to afghanistan in just a few months for an entire year. i had a fantastic time watching tiffany interact with all four kid's. sometimes i find that my kids and i get bored. tiffany is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to entertaining kids and having constant activities for them to do. our days were planned out ahead of time and we stayed busy the entire time. an unexpected detour to the ocoee river brought us to a place i'd never seen before. we embarked on an adventure together that day and ended up 5 miles down a dirt road. this wasn't just any dirt road though. it was located on a mountain and the scenery was unbelievable. we stumbled upon the ocoee river and enjoyed a quiet lunch on a concrete picnic table. the only noise we heard was the trickling water from the river. beware of bear signs were posted around the area. we went on a nature walk and talked about our surroundings. tiffany and i agreed there is no better way to be closer to God than being in nature. all 6 of us enjoyed the entire experience. our adventure may have begun as a "detour", but i think it's the best detour i've taken in years! if only i would have brought my camera along...
