Babymoon and Summer's Weekend with Grandma and Grandpa

Paul and I took a "Babymoon" / "late Valentine's Day" / "early 5 year anniversary" weekend getaway trip to my parents cabin in Wisconsin this past weekend.  It was our first overnight time away together since Summer was born!  With the upcoming birth of our son next month and Paul's big CFA test looming in June, we knew we wouldn't get this kind of time for "connecting" for a while, so we grabbed the opportunity!  I picked Paul up from work on Friday and we stopped for dinner at a place near Paul's work called The Black Sheep.  It had really good pizza and a fun atmosphere!  It was my first time there, but it is already a favorite!  Then we drove to Wisconsin and stayed at my parents' cabin for the weekend.  We talked, and talked, and played Skip-bo, and talked, and played Sequence, and went for walks (55 degrees!), and talked, and read together, and talked about what we read, and ate good food and talked some more!---it was so wonderful to connect without any interruptions from our favorite "little one"! 

Meanwhile, our "little one" got spoiled at home with Grandma and Grandpa! :)  They came to stay at our house and did a bunch of Summer's favorite things and loved her up quite a bit!  Grandma and Grandpa were great about taking pictures and videos of Summer to send to Paul and me on our phones while we were away, as we missed her ;).  Here is the string of pictures and video we got to see while we were gone!  Enjoy :)

Right after I left on Friday, I missed her, so Grandma sent me this picture!

Summer waking up on Saturday morning (6am!  Good Morning Grandma and Grandpa!)
Every morning, Summer and I read a story from her picture Bible (We are on either our 3rd or 4th time through it, I can't remember!), so on Saturday morning Grandpa picked up right where we left off and read the next story!
On the way to see the puppies and kitties at the pet store.

Grilled Cheese :)  Apparently the lady next to Summer sneezed and Summer turned, looked at her, and said "Bless You!"  The lady was pretty surprised, according to Grandma and Grandpa :)

All tucked in, ready for bed, on Saturday night.  She now says "G' Night, Lub you" as we walk out of her room and did the same thing for Grandma and Grandpa :)

Eating "Macaroni's" as she calls it (Macaroni and Cheese).  She ate the while bowl!

Seeing Auntie Kristin

Silly face!

Grandpa and I were so blessed to have that weekend with Summer. She is a very happy, secure and obedient little girl. Glad Mommy and Daddy had a great time at the cabin, too! :)
