Just Relax

Sometimes you just need to relax...

Hang out...

And have some fun...

Which is exactly what the WBH and I are doing this weekend.

All by ourselves.

Yep. We have been sans kiddos for more than 24 hours now.

And at last report, the house was still standing and so were Jamie and Sarah, who gave us this time off as a Christmas gift.

Talk about a gift worth more than gold!

We miss the kiddos, but we have enjoyed having some time to ourselves to reconnect, have entire conversations without interruption, and eat hot meals. It's the first time since the boys were born that we've had more than a couple hours for just the two of us. That is without chores to do, bills to pay, or errant children to tuck back into bed. It's been nice.

Vacations are always nice.

And homecomings are even nicer.

Thanks, Jen. We had the best time, and we did things like hung out at the hotel and watched TV and read good books. Funny how life with triplets changes your perspective on things. Just the silence was a treat.

John, I highly, HIGHLY recommend it. We came back renewed, refreshed and will probably be better spouses and parents for the break. It didn't take a week in the Bahamas. In fact, we stayed in a hotel less than 10 minutes from our house. Location wasn't the goal, separation was.

It was blissful. And yet we couldn't wait to get home.
