where are the pictures of the kids?
I know many of you read our blog because our kids are cute, but this time you'll have to endure pictures of us without the kids. Friday was our 10th wedding anniversary, and we celebrated in style with a trip to Newport, RI. My parents and sister agreed to keep the kids for 3 days and 2 nights, so we dropped them off on the way north. We weren't sure if a 2 night getaway was worth driving so far, but we were pleased to discover that it definitely was. Even with some uncooperative weather, we had a wonderful time. We walked by the ocean, ate delicious food, walked around town, toured 2 mansions, ate more delicious food, read a novel together, and walked some more. It was the most relaxed we've felt since we became parents, and we loved it. The kids did better than anyone anticipated, and we were all happy to see each other again last night. If you'd like to see more pictures from our trip, you can visit my album.
