The hubby is in the middle of his family medicine rotation right now, just thirty minutes from our home, which is a nice change from the hour commute he usually has!

But even being thirty minutes away is rough when you’re on call, so last week, the boys and I packed up and stayed across the street from the hospital with him while he was on call two nights in a row.

You would have thought I was packing for a month away, but you never know what you’ll need in two days with two preschoolers!

But without internet, errands to run and chores to do for those few days, we had a lot of fun family time!

First, just learning, playing, and relaxing at the house…

And then at a local dinosaur museum, a.k.a boy heaven…

Changing things up a bit can be a HUGE blessing, especially when it means more time with the hubby and getting a glimpse of what our life could look like in a few years. It was fun to tour the hospital and be right there when he was called to help someone, even if it was three in the morning!

Have I mentioned what an AMAZING doctor he will be?!

I love that man. (Did you catch that, honey?! xoxo)

And the blessings continue to flow…

Happy Valentine’s Day dear friends! May your day be filled with His love overflowing in your heart and to those around you!
