The first four days of November, these sweet hooligans from next door stayed at the cabin with us while Daddy Kristoffer and Mommy Dana had a much-needed and deserved little getaway.
Earlier this month, Kim and I were so very blessed to witness two of our grandchildren's dedication in their new church.
As hard as it was to leave this beautiful place, our fabulous three weeks in Peru had come to an end and we were missing our peeps and little cabin back home.
Winding down our fabulous three-week trip to Peru, we knew beforehand that after the fun-but-hectic itinerary we'd need a couple of days to relax and unwind before we came home.
It's Peru's tourist claim-to-fame and one of the most visited sites in the world, on many people's bucket list, with up to 5,000 visitors daily.
Which is precisely the reason Kim and I did not add Machu Picchu to our original Peru itinerary.
After the steaminess of the Amazon jungle and the rugged accommodations therein, I have to say the cool mountain air of Cusco and the luxurious hotel we stayed in were even more appreciated than ever. This colorful mosaic was just outside our Cusco hotel.
