Big thank yous to my Mom and Mother in Law who watched the kids for us on Friday and Saturday. The kids adored having the grandparents over for the evenings, and John and I welcomed the change of pace and alone time together we were able to share.
Laura was an absolutely stunning bride! And her groom was so proud!
Everyone was sad we didn't bring the kids, because they love seeing Mark and Julia, but we explained that date nights are few and far between and having time alone with friends is important too, no matter how cute and wonderful are kids are, everyone needs a break from time to time. Plus, Julia and Mark got to spend the evening with Grandma Judy and Grandpa Jack. Julia got a new doll from Grandma and Mark got a new train!
At the BBQ we were pampered and served and we sat and talked and talked...and no one interrupted us, no one had to go on the potty, nobody's diaper had to be changed, and no one was competing for attention. It was sweet.
I also got to see John sit back and relax, and chat it up with his buddies, John and Adrian. There were several couples there and it was so nice to have an adult conversation for a change!
For dessert we had red velvet cake, fruit, and apple strudel!!!!!
It was also nice for me to have girl time.
