Rich and I got AWAY!

Rich and I got to do something I've been dreaming of for years and years! We took a long weekend and went on a little trip ALONE, without any kids! I was excited to go on our trip but I was SO worried about leaving the kids and both of us being away from them at the same time for so long! We've never both been away from them for more than 1 night and even then, we weren't usually allowed to take more than 12 hours at the MOST(that's a whole other story, though) accept for when my sister watched the kids for us last year! We went several years (like 5) without taking even a night to ourselves (part of the other story) and even very rarely get to go out on dates. I know that most couples go on dates once a week or at least every few weeks or so but getting Rich to take me out on a date, just the two of us, more than once every two or three months is like an act of congress!
So I had a work thing that I took time off for that ended up being postponed and Rich had taken the time that I was going to be gone off to be home with the kids. Since I no longer had to go we decided to take a little trip together! Even though I was aprehensive to leave the kids at first, we had such a great time! We had a few things planned that were completely ruined by the fact that the entire time we were there it was rainy and cold and then it snowed the day we left! But we got to visit some old haunts and eat fantastic food (as always)! We're hoping to go back to NC with the kids this summer on vacation and do all the normal stuff and hopefully it won't be 40 degrees and rainy/snowy! Here are a few pictures we got while we were out there.

While we were there I got to see my cousin Jimmy and his boys! Here is a picture of him with his youngest boy Evan. He is 18 months old!

This is a picture of Jimmy's oldest son Austin who just turned 3 last month!

Here we are on Sunday of our trip! (imagine me singing) "Ju-ust the two of us!"

Here is another one that we got someone to take of us in front of the Cape Fear River. We had a lovely walk down town even though it was a little chilly and rainy. It was nice to be home and really have the time to take things in at our own pace!

YAY! You actually made a post - I haven't done that in like 3 years! Too mentally exhausted to think of anything clever to say. Love you :D

So great that you guys were able to get away! Sounds like you had a blast, we're trying to so something like that before the next baby comes. LOVE the new family pic!

I'm SO glad that you and Rich were able to get away and have sometime alone. Looks like it was a fun trip for you even if it was a bit on the cold side. Hopefully this summer you will be able to make it on your Ghost Walk.
