Well this past weekend I arranged for the kids to go to Mike and DeDe's so that Matt and I could have a weekend together to just hang out and relax. I had planned on surprising Matt but since we hadn't ever left them anywhere I decided he would probably want to know first. After he slept on the idea, he was all for it!
Saturday morning we were supposed to get massages but the masseuse was sick. We relaxed and took our time getting ready and then we had lunch at Jason's Deli and went to the movies and watched "People Like Us." It was good.
We also looked at spaghetti sauce recipes online and picked one we wanted to try and went to Wal-Mart to get all of the ingredients. Then it was too late for us to cook because Matt wanted the spaghetti sauce to cook a long time so the flavors could meld so we went to Rib Crib, ran by Kohl's and Target, and then back to the movies to watch Men In Black 3.
We tried to fill our weekend with relaxing activities that still kept us busy because our house is just a little too quiet without our sweet things here. (:
Sunday morning we got up and had breakfast and made our spaghetti sauce so it could cook all day. By this time we were chomping at the bits to see our babies. We had a great time and we got some much needed rest this weekend and I know we are both probably better parents this week because we are re-energized but We. Were. Ready. to see our babies!! We met Mike and DeDe to get them and we were so excited to finally get there and hug and kiss them...and they were asleep!!! Haha! So we just switched cars and headed home. As soon as we got in the car with the kids--all just felt right with the world again.
Thanks Mike and DeDe for taking such good care of the kids! They are still talking about all the fun they had. ( : I will post about their weekend later.
