Our Weekend...away!

Our first full weekend away from the girls, to sum up in a word was...RELAXING! I love my girls but man, they are alot of work! It was nice to step away from everything and enjoy it!

It started early Thursday morning, we left before the girls woke up. Worked perfectly because when they woke up Mimi was here and let's face it they were super excited I'm sure. We drove to Austin and checked in to our hotel. The boys went one way and the girls another...Manis and pedis! I was all sorts of ready for someone to pamper me and catch up on all the gossip mags! My mother in law surprised me and treated me to all that for my birthday!!!

After that, we had a wonderful dinner at the Salt Lick
You are missing out if you have never been to this place! A must have in Austin.

Friday was all about the wedding! In grand wedding fashion most people involved were running from place to place with finishing touches!

Andrea and her Dad (her parents are about the nicest people ever, LOVED THEM)

Sorry the pictures are not great, I had Chris's camera and it was DARK! We didn't take many pictures all weekend because we forgot the charger and didn't want the camera to die.

Chris was the best man
If any picture sums up between the wedding and the reception it is this....



Never a good sign when GPS looks likes this and you have NO idea where you are going...Anyways we got there finally and all was well ;)



The Four of us...Yes I know my eye are closed but this was the only picture we have!


Chris and I enjoying the night!

Congrats, Uncle Clint and our new Aunt Andrea! We love you and wish the best for you guys!


After the reception we headed to San Antonio for two nights...It was wonderful and we slept in both mornings...Has seriously not happened for me since before I had the babies!

Our Hotel...

A few pictures of our time on the Riverwalk
It sure was nice to just be a couple again instead of parents for a few days. I think we both came back well rested and ready to be better parents. I highly recommend it to any parents, take some time for yourselves...it's worth it!
