I was in San Antonio all last week, and the days were filled. I would get back from the conference, go get dinner, and then come back to the hotel and prepare for the next day's classes (I was "teaching"). I always think I will be productive on these trips, one of these days I'll learn...
Anyways, I got home late Friday night, and Saturday morning we were off to White Oaks lavender farm so we could get Catherine some culinary lavender. She wanted two plants, but I talked her into three.
We toured the farm, swung in the swings and hammocks for a while, and enjoyed a lavender ice cream treat while we were there. Then we headed up into Shenandoah National Park. The clouds and rain broke while we were at the farm, and I think the bad weather kept people away from both the farm and Shenandoah, since traffic was light.
Catherine indulged me as I took the kids for a short, 1-mile hike up to Blackrock to catch the views, and then we headed back into Harrisonburg for dinner and made our way to our hotel. There is still a movie date-night for Mother's Day, but all-in-all, I think we had a very nice time.
Happy Mother's Day!
