This past weekend my sister came down from Lansing and stayed with Leo so Dave and I could get away for awhile. This was a combination getaway – to celebrate our 5 year anniversary in December (because with a newborn we won’t be going away), as a last getaway before baby girl arrives, and as a getaway date because we haven’t had one in awhile!
We left Saturday morning and headed up to Grand Rapids. We didn’t have huge plans for the weekend – originally we thought we would spend a lot of time outside walking around downtown or parks, but the weather was a little cold and wet for that. Instead, we just enjoyed doing whatever and being on our own! We went to Uncle Cheetah’s Soup Shop for lunch when we first arrived and it did not disappoint!
We sat in a coffee shop. We walked around a mall. We read magazines in Barnes and Noble. We saw The Butler at a discount theater (good movie, would be even better without Oprah). We had delicious Mexican food for dinner and ate way too much queso. We slept in. Dave overcaffeinated himself. We had a leisurely breakfast and read books. We walked around Target. We talked and talked and just hung out. It was perfect!
Thanks, Jill, for watching Leo for us!!
