This past weekend, Steve and I dropped the kids off at my parents' house on Saturday afternoon and then went in to Boston for an overnight date. How awesome is that? We checked in to the Hilton Back Bay, ate dinner at P.F.Changs, and then drove over to the Bay Side Expo to see Cirque du Soleil - Kooza. After that, we went out for dessert a the Cheesecake Factory (I know, we should have gone to some Boston original restaurants instead of the chains, but it was raining and we stuck with places in the Prudential Center so we wouldn't have to walk outside for more than a block.) Dessert was overkill -- I couldn't even finish half of mine -- but it was nice to have such a decadent evening. On Sunday we slept in until 10:00!!! And then after having brunch and browsing around the mall for a while, we took a nap! Oh my, the decadence has no end!! And oddly enough, the rain was a blessing in some ways because Steve didn't spend the weekend thinking about all the work he could be doing on the house!
I highly recommend a weekend away from your house with your significant other as a wonderful gift to yourselves. Happy 7th anniversary to us!!
