A Weekend Away

Randy and I have been away all weekend, kid free!  A few months ago we decided that we would try and do something for our anniversary this year and decided to go to Nashville, TN.  It was so nice to have a full 2 days of practically no responsibilities.  We made it down to Nashville with only one pit stop, which took under 5 minutes.  If we would of had the kids with us, we would have been at that rest stop for at least 25-30 minutes.  There was no fighting, crying, screaming "are we there yet?' or "how much longer?" coming from the backseat.  It was peaceful.  It was all about us.  There wasn't all that extra luggage of kid stuff to carry around.  Snacks or toys in my purse in case of a melt down.  We didn't have to worry about nap times or bedtimes.  We just went where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go and stayed however long we wanted to.  We haven't had the opportunity to do that in a very. long. time!  So we must give thanks, where a thank you is due......THANK YOU Monica and Ernie (aka: mom and dad/grandma and grandpa)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Taking care of our kiddos for two whole days, was much appreciated!  Of course I did miss the rugrats and kept thinking about how much they each would love certain things about our trip, but I knew that they were having so much more fun with their grandma and grandpa and that made it easier.  But I was so happy to see them when we went to pick them up this afternoon and I'm feeling a little more refreshed to take on their never ending shenanigans :)
