so...back to reality

Hubby and I had our first night (2 actually) and days alone in 6 and 1/2 years.  We went to a great dinner (part of the conference) at Shula's in the hotel and then the sales guys took everyone out for the evening to Pleasure Island.  The next day we slept in, ate late and went to the parks after I did some conference stuff.  We only rode rides we cannot ride w/the kids!  I did Tower Of Terror and The Rock & Roll Rollercoaster!!  And ate ice cream!  Then we had a concert (also part of the conference) with H.OOTIE and the B.LOWFISH!  Awesome.  Thursday we slept in late and went shopping!  Then it was time to come home.

But that taste of our old life - the fun carefree life before we had kids.  Remembering what it is like to have fun with each other!  And have one another's full attention!  And eat a meal in peace!  It's almost shocking to come home and be dropped into the life as parents of three children - especially since the 2 little ones are SO little.

We have already started planning our next escape!
