Little "Stay-Cation"

Our 7th wedding anniversary was two weeks ago. It fell on a busy Saturday filled with baptisms, library classes, birthday parties, and lots of work for Aaron. So he contacted my sis in the hotel business who booked us a room at the Embassy Suites downtown this last weekend. Aaron's awesome cousin watched the kids so we could go.
(we're not very good at these self-portraits!)
We went to dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe and it was super yummy. It is right on The Magnificent Mile so we had a great view of the city streets and passersby while we ate. The best part was the dessert:
"New Orleans Beignets Served Warm with Three Sauces" After dinner, we walked The Mile, stopping at a couple stores.
When we were ready to head back to the hotel, it was pouring rain---and I mean POURING! Luckily we had an umbrella, but we still got pretty wet with the blowing rain. It was kind of fun to run in the rain together--kind of romantic too!
The next morning our awesome sitters brought the kids down to the city to meet us for breakfast at the Bongo Room where they have all kinds of yummy breakfast foods including some very creative and delicious pancakes!
So glad we went, and it worked out perfectly to meet back up with our kids that way. Wesley kept hanging on to me--I think he missed his mommy!
Thanks for 7 great years Aaron. I love you more than ever!
And a special thanks to our babysitters for making our little get away possible.
