1st Ever Childless Weekend

For the 1st time since Noah was born, almost 4 years ago, Jared and I went away for the weekend. We had a great time. My parents and grandmother came down to watch the kids for us while we enjoyed a weekend in Chattanooga, TN. While I did miss them very much, it was great to get away for a couple of days. We woke up when we wanted to, did what we wanted to, ate what we wanted to, it was fantastic. We hit the hot spots, such as Rock City, Ruby Falls, the Incline Railway, and Lookout Mountain, and then spent the rest of the time downtown. We walked for miles and did not have to push a stroller or carry anyone for 2 entire days.

I'm happy to say that we are back now and I have more patience and energy now that I have had a couple of days off. I don't want to do that very often, but a couple of times a year will be a great way to recharge and appreciate my kids all the more. It is also a great time for Jared and myself to reconnect and to have conversations that are not all centered around the kids, it was great to spend some quality uninterrupted time with my best friend.

I'll post some pictures once Jared downloads them from his camera.
