Now you're probably all waiting for me to say how much I missed the kids but I didn't...not at all. You can judge me and say I am a bad mom and I am totally fine with that. The kids were having a blast with grandma, grandpa, auntie & uncle and I was spending time with my husband alone. I loved holding hands, waking up and reading while he was still sleeping, taking an early afternoon nap, and not worrying if a restaurant would have enough high chairs. We got to talk all day long for three days about where we are in life and what our goals are for our family in the years to come. We were able to go out in public and not have to explain how we came to seven kids in four years. And after three days we realized how much we still really enjoy each other.
|Paul sent this to the big kids to ask what they recommended for breakfast. Drew said caramel apple and Natalie went for the pink cupcake.|
|We thought about Vegas t-shirts but thought they would enjoy pool towels a lot more for being good while mom and dad were away. (Don't mind the two toned wall. We are working on figuring out paint colors.)|
