House Husband

Over the weekend I went with 21 other women to hike and camp in Havasupai.  The hike was a total of twenty or so miles and not being a hiker, outdoorsie, a runner or an anything, I am very proud that I made it out alive and what’s more, with a great experience.

The very best part of the trip was when I got home, the house was clean, Joey had fixed our waterfall/pond, he also enlisted the kids in helping him clean the schoolroom (that we have never actually used as a schoolroom yet because it’s been such a disaster.)

As you can see he also did a few loads of laundry, swam with them, and took them to the movies.

Friday morning Joey dressed the kids up as cows (with Isabel’s help) and got free meals at Chick-fil-a.  As you can see we are not afraid to sacrifice our children’s dignity for free food.

Sylvia looks thrilled.

This picture makes me laugh.  Both her feet are an inch from the ground.

Joey also took them to the zoo.  I think Joey needs to be the house husband, or I really need to go on vacation by myself more often.

  1. I have to say WOW too! What a fun time for you and the kids to spend with their dad. On a side note, you have a very interesting house, is your pool right next to your house outside wall or is that a different building? I have never seen that before.

  2. What gorgeous pictures! I call those, “go away and come home a better mommy” trips. Especially when you are doing something worthwhile like hiking & backpacking!! Yes – I’m very proud of you for your outdoorsmanship 🙂

  3. I love that he took them to get free meal at Chick fil a. I almost did that too!

    I hate to say this but everytime I see a fanny pack, I think of you. I saw a really stylish one and almost sent you the link. Anyhow, great pics!
