VACATION! Finally! #CareGiversNeedAVacationToo
We realized that neither one of us, my husband and I, had taken a vacation for over a year and a half - just like the rest of the world. So.........In the midst of the pandemic still hanging on, we were able to safely sneak away for a one week road trip to visit family and see some sites.
I made sure mom had everything she needed, of course, before we left and we checked in with her twice a day and shared our vacation pictures with her as well. She decided to take out her sewing machine and work on a project while we were away.
We visited Mt. Evans in Colorado where we climbed to the 'tippy top' and I got this great picture:
