18th Anniversary Getaway

Pat planned a little getaway for us last weekend for our anniversary (which was in July). We realized this was the first time in four years the two of us got away by ourselves and that we definitely need to do that more often.

We had so much fun relaxing on the beach and at the pool for three days.
I actually finished a book!

I was a little worried because Mei Lin still doesn't like it when we leave, but she did great with Pat's mom. They did art projects, saw a movie, went out to eat, and stayed very busy. Apparently she didn't miss us until day three and only mentioned it in a matter of fact tone! Thank you, Nancy, for your wonderful care of the children. We didn't worry about them at all.

My private little spot on the beach. Ah, I want to go back already.

Our attempt at a photo together - Scary.

Pat, enjoying his rental upgrade.
The ONLY thing the girls wanted us to bring them back was a big lollipop and they asked us about them every time we talked to them. Believe it or not, they're not easy to find and we had to make a stop at Cracker Barrel on our way home. Oh, were they excited!
