Fun without Mom and Dad!!

One of my birthday presents from Todd was to take me to the 4th of July sales at the outlet mall in Allen, TX. I took off work yesterday, so we could head out early. Last year we took M & L, but this year decided to leave them with Nannie. That way we could get some much needed alone time, plus shopping would be much more enjoyable. This was the very first time I have ever left them over night. I missed them like crazy, but enjoyed the time just with hubby. Of course they were the topic of our discussion a majority of the time, plus on the receiving end of most of the shopping! I did make sure that I used all my birthday money I received on me! :)

I don't think M or L had time to miss us at all! My niece Kayla and her boyfriend Branden helped Nannie in the entertaining department! The below pictures are in opposite order of the events, but it will still work. Friday they went over to Nannie and Granddad's to swim and ride bikes. Then today they went to the park to play and feed the ducks! I know they had a ball! Todd and I express our thanks to Nannie, Granddad, Kayla & Branden for making the trip so much easier on us! We had a very grand time while our kids had a very grand time!! Fun times all around!

It looks like M&L had a blast! And I am so happy for you and your hubby, being able to take a little bit of time for yourselves. I'm sure the trip was really great for everyone. :) :)

Glad you got a bit of time away! And have I mentioned lately how cute M & L are? No? Well, they are SUPER cute! I love the pictures of them!

Good for you! I'm so jealous! I really, really wish that T and I could go off on a little weekend trip (or even longer), but we just don't have any good childcare options for an overnight. We did spend a night, just the two of us, in a hotel while visiting family in Iowa. The kids stayed with my aunt and uncle (which was where we were all staying for the majority of our trip), but we put them to bed and then were back relatively early in the morning. It wasn't much alone time for us, but I'm still glad we did it.
