They're Back!!!

For the past four days Mannchen and Töchterchen have been visiting hubby's parents - their Mimi and Papa!  When we had kids, they told us this was something they would like to do for us each year as an anniversary gift.  And let me tell you - it's the BEST anniversary gift you can give!

Hubby and I had a wonderful time together - we did a lot of cooking together, played golf, did a little packing, and had a big group of friends over to throw one last BBQ before we move.  I love getting time to ourselves to connect.  I think it's so important for our marriage that we don't just get lost in the rolls of parenting.  A long weekend like this past one give us a chance to remember that first we are each other's spouse.  Plus, he's my best friend and a complete stud muffin, so I just love the extra time with him!

All that being said, we are SO glad to have the kids back.  The house is way to calm and quiet without them.  I absolutely loved hearing all about their visit - it's so much fun that they can tell us what they did now!  We could tell they had a wonderful time and partied hard.  I am so thankful they have grandparents that love them so dearly and value spending quality time with them.  I think these past few days will be stories and memories they will carry with them for a long time.

Thank you Mimi and Papa (and Uncle Nate)!!!
