Vacation - we never get one

So back in the spring we had booked a couple of nights down in St. George to get a couple of R and R days, wanting to get out of the cold and into the warm spring sun down there. When the day arrived to go down, a cold front had moved in and we would have been stuck in the hotel room down there. Not exactly what we wanted so we stayed home and had a staycation, going swimming, visiting some places around here.

Well, we had to do that again.

We had planned on going up to Bear Lake and camping for a few days in the area. Something that we all, and most especially Tiffany, was looking forward to. Well, in the days leading up to our leaving, Logan had come down with a cold. It didn't seem too bad. We took him hiking, playing at the park, etc, and he would often come home tired, but he didn't complain too much. However, as time went on, he started to complain more and more. Walking to church, a short walk, he got tired easily. We had a birthday party for Tiffany and he went to bed instead (on his own accord). He had come down with a cough, that the dad in me said it was just a post cold cough, nothing too bad.

But a mothers intuition is something I have learned you always must listen to. She opted to take him to the doctor the day before we were to leave on the camping trip. After being examined, and an x-ray, the doctor confirmed that he had Walking Pnemonia and doctors orders were to not go on the camping trip. Apperantly the smoke isn't good, and you don't sleep or eat very well either. So to many family members behest, we canceled the camping trip and tried to have fun in any case.

We have a trip planned in October. I am hoping that we will be able to make that one. I would hate to miss out on all our outings for various reasons.

Or maybe we just aren't supposed to get out this year.

  1. Maybe you shouldn't speak the words 'vacation' and your plans out loud. You and Tiffany make a plan - then just grab the kids and go. Kind of like trying to get the temple sometimes! Good luck - hope it works out for you and that everyone stays healthy.
