Last night, Mike and I headed to Rogers for a night away to celebrate our anniversary. We celebrated 11 years on February 10th and our sweet friends kept our girls for us so we could enjoy an evening together. We don't get to do that very often - and by not very often, I mean this is the first night away from our kids in nearly 2 years - so it was much needed and so fun!
We had a great dinner and did some shopping that night. Then this morning, we got up, had breakfast and did some more shopping, had lunch and then headed back home. It was such a nice time to just enjoy being together! We have been so blessed with a wonderful marriage and 3 happy, healthy girls and for that we are thankful. It's always nice to just slow down though and have time alone - away from the busyness of kids and life in general and take some time for each other.
Hopefully we don't wait another 2 years to do something like this - wonder if we could convince the grandparents to just move here?! HAHA! We are very thankful for friends that we can leave our kids with and know that they are being loved on and cared for just like they would be at home. We truly enjoyed our night and didn't worry about them one bit. And they had a ball, too! I think it's just as good for them to have time away from us - Macie was calling me her precious angel tonight - too funny!! :)
Us with our free dessert - and yes, it was as good as it looks!
