The Wells Family Nacation

Last weekend, we took off a couple days of work and took a four-day-long "nacation".  And no, I am not misspelling vacation.  There are vacations, there are staycations, and this one was a "nature" inspired trip, so we called it a "nacation".  We wanted to get away for a few days, but didn't want to spend all weekend on the road, didn't want to go somewhere too exciting where we felt pressured to tour a bunch of stuff, and also wanted to bring the little buddy along.  Lake Blackshear fit all the criteria:

Lake Blackshear was a 2.5 hour drive through the most beautiful back-country roads lined with cotton farms and pecan trees.  On the way, we experienced all things southern by eating fried chicken in a town that is "Home of the Syrupmakers",  stopped at a country store that had homemade jerky, and believe it or not, saw a deer hanging from a billboard about to be " field dressed", if you will.  I'm not even going to get into Jeremie's encounter with a lady named Skeeter in the Dollar General.  Anyway, the remainder of the weekend was fairly uneventful.  We did a lot of hiking with Manny, who had himself a ball, and was so tired, he was snoring like a person at night.  Of course we watched a lot of football and had some delicious meals at the restaurant at the resort.  

The little buddy was so happy to join in on the fun.  Just like a man, he closed his eyes and stuck his tongue out for the picture.

Jeremie just couldn't resist climbing the tree.......can't take him anywhere...
We did spend some time in Americus, about 30 minutes from Lake Blackshear.  It had the most adorable downtown,  with so many beautiful historic homes and buildings.....and just look at what intersection we's to you Dad....

The beautiful Windsor Hotel....I think built in 1890.  

The highlight though was most definitely the quality time J & I got to spend together. Words can't express how blessed I feel to be married to my best friend who makes our marriage his top priority.  Even after 6 years of being together, hanging out with him never gets old.  Looking forward to many more getaways with my wonderful husband.  

Agghh.....the sunset at Lake Blackshear....I look at this and think:  We serve a Mighty God.
