We sure did enjoy our weekend away. What a blessing it was to have some time together as a family. I think we all needed it. Since school started, we have been so busy and I feel like we haven't had much time to just hang out together. This weekend was supposed to be "fall break" and we planned this getaway 6 months ago. Matt took off Friday and Monday and we were all set to go somewhere. Well the school calendar changed and there was no longer any time off. We tried to find a weekend only vacation but that just wasn't working. We couldn't find a place that was going to work up in Tennessee. Then I started looking in Mentone, AL. I found the perfect place! It is the High Horse Lodge. Just an hour and 1/2 from our house and everything we wanted. Up on a mountain with hiking trails and lots of things to do. We were so excited. And it lived up to all expectations. We loved it!!!
