Over the weekend, Chris and I had our first ever trip alone since becoming parents. We hadn’t spent more then a couple hours alone together and had never had an overnight-er. Chris decided that a weekend getaway, just us two was be the perfect way to celebrate the weekend of my birth. It took a ton of convincing, but I finally got down with the plan. And I’m so glad I did, we had a really great time and so did the kids – win win win win (there is 4 of us). We packed up and drove to Niagara Falls, since it is only an hour and a half from home, it was the perfect “getaway”. Two kids who don’t ride in a car often and were pretty grateful for the ride.
We picked up the kids, and it was cuddle town for the rest of the day. They of course had a blast without the boring parents, so thankful that my cousin could watch them and that they all had such a great time together.
These are a few iphone snaps, in case the pixels didn’t give them away. Our first ever weekend away was a success, but more on that later. We had planned on stopping to see family that live near by, but weren’t able to make it happen. We kept talking about how much the kids would enjoy a visit to the Falls (figures, talking about the kids the whole time) so hopefully we can swing by with them in tow, when the months get a bit warmer. Even though it was only to Niagara Falls, I fell like I might have caught a bit of a travel bug – I feel the need to find a way to make more trips with the whole family (and maybe some with just the adults) happen.
