BabyMoon!!Andrew and I trekked up to Lawrence this past Saturday for a little getaway. We left Mia with my mom and dad for her first night on her own... and she did surprisingly well. I think I cried more than she did when we left her.
Once I got over the no-Mia sadness, the Babymoon was just peachy. We checked out all the new stuff at my alma mater. We visited the sweet sports museum in Allen Fieldhouse and then went out for ice cream with Val and Scott. The ice cream was hella chocolately... but I guess that's what I should expect when I order something called something like "Death by Chocolate." I also discovered that the apartment complex I lived in during college is totally not called the same thing anymore.
After ice cream, we checked into our awesome possom hotel and then went to Mass. After Church we decided to walk from our hotel to dinner. (It looked a bit stormy outside, but the restaurant was only a block away and we figured we'd be okay.)
We ate at the very yummy Free State Brewery where my hubby got some great beer while I drank a preggo-friendly glass of lemonade. It turned out that it stormed like crazy while we were in the restaurant but had pretty much passed over by the time we returned to the hotel. So we only got slightly sprinkled on... but it was a lovely chance to get kissed in the rain so that was pretty neat.
We took full advantage of having cable for the night, a ginormous king-size bed, and a heated indoor pool.
It was a much needed and very fun getaway for the both of us.
The strange part of it was that I realized just how much effort we put into parenting. It's nuts to me how much time I spend just making sure Mia isn't in to something she's not supposed to be in or just playing with her. I hardly knew what to do with myself without a baby to keep an eye on. And in about 3 months... I'll have two of them to keep an eye on. Craziness!
I hope you all had as great of a weekend as we did. Yeay for babymoons!!!
