Child-Free weekend...

I'm sure at this point, you're wondering if we even survived our weekend away... YES we did!

This was another "first" for us, we had NEVER, in our almost 15 years of marriage, taken off without the kids (other than to dinner etc). HOLY COW, all I can say is WHAT TOOK US SO LONG?! Actually, to be honest with you, I don't think (ok, I KNOW) I would have felt comfortable leaving the kiddos before now. It took some creative planning on our part, making sure all 4 kiddos were going to be taken care of, but man was it worth it! Prince Charming & I had the BEST time together! I have to say, as much as we LOVED it, it was very weird not having them with us. It certainly didn't take us long to get used to the idea, but it was kind of "odd".

The weather was perfect (for the most part), we got to eat at restaurants WE wanted to eat at, in other words...NO FAST FOOD!!! ;) We took long walks on the beach, searched for shells, went shopping, drove around, ate, hung out in our condo, played in the tide pools, & just enjoyed each other's company. It really was an INCREDIBLE weekend away.

Here are some of the MANY pics we snapped...

Will we do this again? ABSOLUTELY, but, as much fun as it was, I'm not in any hurry, I kind of like hanging out with my kids & doing "family" stuff. In fact, next time we head over to the coast, it'll be with all 4 kiddos in tow! Can't wait!!!

***A special thanks to all that helped make this possible...Suzanne, Doug & Sally, Goldfish, & Mom & Dad. We couldn't have done this without your help with the kids, thanks again!***

This is awesome! Looks like the two of you had some well-deserved and long overdue "us" time! Need to do the same myself!
