Every once in a while you just need to get away with your spouse. Sure you see each other every day and eat dinner together most nights and sleep in same bed (unless someone has homework...) but to change up the routine you just need to get away. Is doesn't have to be far away-just not at home.So on Friday Dave and I took the day off of work and went skiing. We skied all day and I even did my first mogul run (accidentally)! After 10 minutes standing at the top of the run, looking down at the "bumpy" run, Dave finally coaxed me into making my first turn down the run. I ended up following him down (thank you, Dave) and I am proud to say that I didn't fall once! However, I did watch some guy blaze by me, catch his ski in a mogul and fly head over heel down the hill while both of his feet ejected from his skis...
After skiing we drove to downtown where we had hotel reservations. We cleaned ourselves up and walked to have dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory. Dave had never been there before and I hadn't been there in 6+ years. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner, spumoni ice cream and a balloon guy even came to our table and made me a flower.
After dinner we walked through downtown back to our hotel and enjoyed a drink in the bar on the 27th floor of the hotel. The drinks were expensive, but the view was fantastic.
The next morning we slept in, walked to a little cafe, ate breakfast and headed to my parent's house to begin the Easter weekend festivities. After dying eggs with my sisters and their friends we enjoyed an Easter/Birthday dinner with Dave's grandmother, mother, uncle, aunt and cousin. On Sunday we hunted for Easter eggs with my sisters, went to church and then went to my aunt and uncle's house for Easter dinner. All of my in-town extended family was there and I always love seeing everyone and catching up.
All in all it was a great weekend and even though it was just for one night, I was happy to have a night away with my husband!
