Aaron asked Crystal to stay with the boys last night.
We left the house, went and ate at Pei Wei...my favorite, and then drove through a terrible storm, tornadoes and all to get to our destination...
A little cabin in the woods at the 7-F Lodge.
how cute is this?
We had a sweet time.
We played Rummy.
Rummy isn't code for something else.
We really played Rummy...the card game.
Before we were married, and before we had kids, we would play Rummy a lot before bed.
There are only two games I can play with Aaron and win half of the time...
Rummy and Scategories
What a fun thing to do on our anniversary.
I was reminded, as I sat with Aaron all evening...no tv...just lots of talking and touching...how much I enjoy my husband.
He really is my favorite person to be with...to talk to...to work through huge ideas.
He makes me laugh.
After the tornado warning subsided, and the huge hail stopped falling, we sat out on that porch and talked...watching the rain.
We came home to sweet boys, waiting on the front porch for us.
And a horror story.
Hudson woke up at 6 a.m. She went to get him, picked him up and realized he was COVERED in poop.
She was covered in poop.
His bed, everything in it was covered in poop.
He was screaming with a horrible diaper rash.
Crystal must really love us!
We're so thankful for her.
Before she left, she said, "This was good practice. Except, I get to go home and take a nap before work. Real moms don't."
I told her to savor this time!
If you live here locally...or even if you don't...
I must say, I am sad I didn't know about the 7 F Lodge sooner!
It was so nice. I am a hotel snob, so when Aaron asked me if I wanted to stay somewhere for the night on our anniversary, I told him..."Here? In this town. No. There is not a hotel in this town nicer than my own bedroom."
I was wrong.
We will be going back.
It was the perfect get away.
They have several cabins from which to choose. Check them out! Here's a couple of my favs:
Batt's Ferry Log Cabin
And check out this chapel...
Someone SERIOUSLY needs to get married here and invite me.
My favorite part of our stay...
We never laid eyes on another person the entire time we were there. Breakfast was in our room, waiting for us. The key was hidden for us to find.
I know not everyone cares about that...but if you do...you know what I'm saying...it was fantastic!
