Michael and I had a great weekend!
A HUGE THANKS to both sets of grandparents for keeping the kids for the weekend! Michael's parents kept the boys at our house and my parents took the girls to their house for the weekend. Mom's words tonight were "how do you do this every day?" LOL, but it sounds like the kids AND the grandparents had a good weekend.
Michael and I spent the weekend in Orlando and went to Universal Studios parks both Friday and Sunday with a "day of rest" on Saturday and a trip to see LaNouba. We are thankful for the gifts from our parents that allowed this weekend's "adventures" as well!
Now we're home and thankful to be back home :). We enjoyed a chance to spend total ADULT time together, to relax and to do things that we just wouldn't have done with our entire crew in tow, like dinners out, roller coasters, and SLEEPING IN :).
I must say, this was a good length of time to be away. Just long enough to get refreshed, have fun, spend some great time together, and by the time we were coming home, we were READY to be coming home and ready to be back in the groove with the kids. At the same time, we were very blessed to know that all of our kids were in good hands and we didn't have to worry about anyone while we were gone! We checked in each morning but aside from Aleksa bringing my parents in to the knowledge of her ability to be a bit sneaky... it sounds like everyone had a busy but good weekend.
THANKS AGAIN to our parents!!! And a big I LOVE YOU to the man of my dreams who I'm so blessed to have spent the last 10 years of marriage to!!!
(And, yes, we have prepared ourselves that after a 3 1/2 day get-away, it may be another 10 years before we have that many continuous hours alone :) ).
