More Anniversary Adventure time! I’ll start with Pat and my weekend.
Saturday Pat and I both had to work, so it started as just a normal weekend. Ben and I only put in a few hours at the office before heading to Meo and Omi’s place. I was able to get Ben all nice and settled in there before Pat picked me up and off we went!
I was a little sad to be leaving Ben behind. I felt bad leaving while he was napping. But that was the time that worked best for us to leave, and we are currently prioritizing sleep for Ben over almost everything else. So I didn’t feel it was a good idea to mess with his naps just to say goodbye.
Pat ended up getting us a deal on a hotel in a nearby suburb. It was a four star hotel and it was great!! When we got there he even got us upgraded to a suite. It had a king sized bed and a terrace. It was still kind of chilly out, so we didn’t get to enjoy a lot of time on the terrace, but it was still pretty nice. Once we got checked in we actually went over to a nearby Target. I had forgotten a couple of items I needed for our time there. We had a coupon for free Oreos too. We were living it up on our little trip, so we picked some up! We really know how to party, don’t we? 🙂
After getting settled into the room it was time to go swimming! I love swimming. Sadly it is something we don’t have a ton of time or opportunity to do. Having a pool was a major factor in choosing the hotel we were at. And we were not disappointed! It was huge!! There were a bunch of people enjoying it, but it didn’t feel too crowded. There was also a hot tub and sauna. I really enjoyed the hot tub. Warm and bubbly, it was great. There were a few babies at the pool, which of course made me think of Ben and miss him. But it was super nice to just get to hang out and play with Pat. I have so much fun with him!
After swimming it was time to get ready to dinner. Pat got us reservations at Gibsons!! I was so excited. Pat really adores a good steak. Plus Gibson’s has a great appetizer that I love. I had to call and check out how Ben was doing, and he was doing very well. Our reservations were at 7, which isn’t that late. However as parents to a baby we haven’t been out of the house after 7 in forever! Ben goes to bed around that time, so we are in and settled for the night. We were such crazy kids being out so late! 😉
Dinner was amazing, as to be expected. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and ate a ton. Our server was really nice and gave us a complimentary dessert! Free ice cream! Sadly, I was so full from dinner I couldn’t eat very much. I generally try to have a no ice cream left behind policy, but I couldn’t follow it. Overall though, it was a wonderful time.

Sunday we got every parent’s favorite thing- to sleep in! Well, we are trained to not sleep too late, but it was still nice to just relax and have a lazy morning. I didn’t let us relax too long though, I missed Ben too much! We got breakfast in the executive club at the hotel (another upgrade Pat got us!!) and hit the road to go get Ben.
I really enjoyed our time just the two of us. We had a lot of fun and really got to reconnect. Coming home to Ben was wonderful. We got a great report from Meo and Omi, which makes every parent happy. I am so lucky to have a husband who plans fun trips for us. I am so grateful to have parents who are willing and able to watch Ben for us. We had such a great time. And up next will be Ben’s fun weekend with Meo and Omi!!
