One of my most favorite hotels is the Palmer House Hilton! It's old and beautiful and right in the middle of everything. We arrived Friday night and got ready to go out to dinner (we were very excited to sit and eat all by ourselves).
This was our view!
The next day it was on to our friend's wedding. We enjoyed catching up with friends and meeting new people.
Avery went to St. Louis and stayed with my parents. The following pictures are all text messages sent to us during our trip.
Avery spent a lot of time shopping and received multiple dolls and multiple new outfits. She also had Mum and Papa wrapped around her finger-even talked Mum into having a sleep over with her every night.
She also got to "participate" in a bike race downtown with her cousins. I write "participate" because she just rode her bike on the side.
When we picked her up today she immediately fell asleep in the car. We were thrilled she got this special time with her grandparents and are so thankful-they are amazing people!
Speaking of other amazing people-Nanny and Papa H.! They were generous and took Macklin. He got special time with his cousins and was spoiled rotten with attention.
We didn't hear much from Mack because he was not sad about us being gone at all. This little boy loves being alone.
Wouldn't you? Look at the stuff he got to do.
It's hard work to find alone time and just be husband and wife! I know we won't be doing it again for a while, but this was an amazing bonding time for us. We had so much fun being together with no interruptions from the kids. I missed them every second (and might have cried a bit), but knew it's healthy for them to see their parents together having fun. This took a village of friends and family and we are more than thankful.
I enjoed taking the time to see us more than parents-we started as husband and wife and that is the foundation to our family! Much love to you Mark! And much love to our special people!!!!!!
