Getaway Weekend

As I told everyone earlier, this past weekend my husband and I had a getaway weekend (really I am not gloating---much). We had a great time without the kids. Hubby did a great job in planning the trip. See, we have worked out our roles in our marriage. I take care of the finances and he does all of the planning, especially for vacations.

As a kid, vacations for me consisted of going to one set of grandparents or the other. No real destination trips except for one summer when my grandparents took me to Florida to see Mickey. My husband on the other hand went to a new destination every summer (most evolving around baseball games). So we are now working on expanding my catalogue of vacation spots. I had never been to Kansas before so we went to Kansas City (we stayed Kansas not Missouri).

We experienced the BBQ enjoyed the quiet of no kids and even went to the casino. That wasn't as much fun as it sounded but it is something we wouldn't be able to do with kids so it had some appeal at the time. We saw KNOWING (see previous post). The best excursion of the weekend was the WWI Museum. We are both history buffs so it was something we enjoyed and it sparked some really good conversation. We both had family in that war so we inspected every picture of German soldiers (that is where our ancestors were at the time) to see if we could see a family resemblance--no luck. The guide said it should take 90 minutes to get through the museum, it took us over 2 hours. It was a good weekend. The kids were glad to see us when we got back. They had fun with Grandma and Papa--went to the zoo, had a picnic and basically got their way 100% of the time.

Now that its Wednesday, the house is almost back in order and the kids are almost deprogrammed from the weekend. Hey we have almost recovered.
