Couples Retreat | Round 2


We wrapped our second successful Couples Retreat this weekend and it has been confirmed that every year we get a little better at camping and have even more fun. This year we took our 5-pack of couples to Camp Ripley. Thanks to Justin, our beloved soldier, we were able to gain access to this fantastic park (free firewood! free ice!). We spent lots of time around the fire, in the water, and with plenty of food and beverages to keep us all very full and plenty silly. Traditions being made!

farm sleepover

if you think you’re too old for sleepovers, i’d suggest reconsidering! we had such a wonderful night out at the farm – lots of friends, furry animals, and a roaring fire! after visiting with Mazy (quite possibly Macy) and Gilly – the fuzziest cows i have ever seen – we all sat down to dinner outside, opened some red wine and talked and laughed. the blazing fire was started with one little match (high-five jan) and roared for a while before we were able to get close enough to roast marshmallows. it was beautiful. wouldn’t it be a dream to live on a sweet ‘ol farm – friend’s homes connected by walking path, an enormous garden, and animals raised for ambiance? knowing near nothing about all the work that goes into maintaining my fantasy leads me to believe it would be amazing. a HUGE thank you to the strandemo’s for inviting us out to their perfect place!
