Lovely Weekend

Paul and I finally got the opportunity to celebrate his 30th birthday together after a crazy couple of weeks.  My mom came into town to keep the kids for a whirlwind 24 hours while we ran off about 10 miles down the road and shopped, ate, hung out with friends, and most importantly, SLEPT without children around.  It was a glorious 24 hours.  There were only a few minor glitches, like when I gave Paul a bite of my {delicious} shrimp and scallop risotto and he had an allergic reaction to the pine nuts.  And then when our hotel neighbors got busted for marijuana and having like 7 people in their room at midnight.  But nothing could have kept us from enjoying our much needed getaway.  And while I am thankful for getaways, I am also thankful that I have the best job in the world to come home to... here I come, Monday, ready and refreshed!

I'll leave you with one of the only pictures I took this weekend- and it was of Norah!  This was my first night away from her and let me tell you, I was dreaming about those cheeks the whole time I was gone...

Glad that you all had a chance to get away!

The picture of Norah is darling! I happened upon the picture of your family in the church directory the other day and it seemed severely odd that she wasn't yet in the picture (in a way that we could see her)!
