A Night Out without kids

It was another whirlwind week with John and I getting the opportunity to speak at the Heart2Home Fundraiser. I always have a hard time speaking in public but I did survive it. We followed that up with Zachary's baptism. Hard to believe taht boy is 8! He is doing great the ADHD medicine is working just like it should be and he does so well.
After asll of that, John and I decided to get away for one night. We went to two different temples. Got massages and pedicures from the Brickhouse Day Spa then, it was on to the Anniversary Inn Swiss family Robinson room. We had a great time but truly missed our kids so much. We still have the baby, Taedin. We should be hearing soon about what DCFS' plans are for him. We know what our plans would be if we had the choice. He sure is a cute baby. And so happy! Well, I have committed myself to getting this blog update today so here it is. We hope you are all doing well and love keeping up on your blogs.

That is so fun that you got to get away. I've always wanted to go to Anniversary Inn! It looks so fun! Congrats on the baptism and I bet you did awesome speaking in front of those people. You are amazing! Love you!

I never noticed how much Josh looks like John...you'd think they were related or something! ;-) You guys inspire me -I don't know how you do what you do. I come home completely wiped out...and I only have 1/3 of a child! Josh and I think of you often. Love to your family.

Wow! That was all in one week!? I guess it was a whirlwind :). I am glad that you got to have a break. You and John deserve it!

Looks like you too had a swing in the jungle, I bet the kids wondered why they were not invited. You deserve a night out on the town hope you allowed yourself to enjoy every minute of it!
