Do Not Disturb!

On Thursday, after a sweet comment that Quinn made about Slickpaw, Grammer and Slickpaw could stay away no longer! So, they hopped in the car as soon as mom got out of school on Friday and headed to see us! ...Since they're already planning on coming next weekend as well, Matt and I had no problem asking them if they would be our "babysitters" on Friday night so that we could go on our first "get-away" since Quinn has been born. Around 5, the three of us headed to the Westin Stonebriar to drop off our bags and check in to our room. When we saw our room, we were pleased but a little disappointed with our parking lot view. That's when Matt worked his magic {telling the front desk that it was our first night away from our almost 2 year old} and we were upgraded to the MOST AMAZING suite!!! It was HUGE...living room, 2 flat screen TVs, HUGE bedroom, ridiculous vanity and bathroom...it was TOO much and we were so thankful and excited! At about 7, Grammer and Slickpaw met us at the hotel to pick up our little man, and, after a long goodbye, Matt and I were FREE! It was a crazy feeling! We've both spent nights away (me 2, Matt lots because of church) but never together!...And, we had such an amazing time...dinner at Macaroni Grill, shopping {I spent a bunch of my Christmas money and got some fancy sunglasses and jeans}, staying up too late watching our shows on Matt's laptop, Matt ordering a midnight snack of hot wings and fries, sleeping in, taking our time getting ready, and having some really amazing talks about our future, our relationship with Jesus, and our family. ...It made us realize that we need to spend time together like this more often!...and, of course made us love our little guy even more!

Thank you, my sweet husband, for planning time for us to go away and for realizing the importance of having time together...just us! I love you so much and am so thankful for your love, your leadership in our family, and your love...you're TGTBT!!!

Good for you guys! I'm sure it's hard to get away... I guess we'll soon understand. We don't get away much now even!

Sounds like a great night. Your parents are sweethearts for coming. But I need to know what the sweet comment Quinn made about them was...
