A few weeks ago we headed to a place for some rest time away from the hospital.  (Leaving town is really the only way for Paul to get a day off.)  So we headed to a Norwegian guest house in Awassa, which is only about a 3 hour drive.  Half of the drive is on bad roads and half is on good roads.  It is a beautiful place, right on the lake.  Since it is lower in elevation it is a bit warmer and they even have a swimming pool.  Nathan loves the water, so he was very excited about going swimming.  It was a nice time to be together as a family
