Our Get Away

by adustyframe ~ May 26th, 2016

We had such a nice time on our get away. I wouldn’t have complained about an extra day but I’m not complaining about the time we had.

It was nice to just be “us” and not have to parent the whole time. Don’t get me wrong. I’m so privileged to have these two boys to parent. We are blessed beyond measure but I need a teensy break now and then and Lee and I need a little time to be spouses not parents. (Hmmm hope I’m making sense!)

We were able to go to a big flee market.

We had a nice meal out.

We used a gift certificate for lunch (free!)

We used a gift certificate for the hotel (free!)

It was an inexpensive get away that’s for sure.

The drive to drop the boys off and get to the hotel was a bit long just because there wasn’t really a straight shot but it was nice. We meandered and got to see some pretty sights.

Of course I cannot keep my eyes open in the car and so there wasn’t a ton of conversation on the drives!

At the hotel, we saw some neat sights–it’s in a secluded area. I wanted to sit in an Adirondack chair by the beach and read my book but chose to take a very big nap. If  we’d have been there one more day, those beach chairs and I would have had a meeting!

Now, I have to figure out how to make this happen sooner than later!
