Chuck surprised me with a night away for our 14 year wedding anniversary. This is the first time we have gotten away for it. wooohooo I was pretty darned excited.
He made a reservation at The Anniversary Inn in Logan. And he got the best and biggest room. Juliet's Balcony. It was soooo sweet and romantic!!
The next morning we missed the gym, and just went straight home to see our bear. It was the first time we have spent away from him and I was afraid he might have had a rough night. When we arrived he was on his way outside to play, and was super excited to see his Papa again. He had stayed up pretty late watching movies and having a fun night of his own. ;0D
We went fishing again and just weren't having much luck. So we bought most of our fish. lol
He danced in the fountains at the City Creek mall in Salt Lake City. He was soaked from head to toe, and he had a blast doing it. We just ran across the way to a store and got him some dry clothes on sale for super cheap for the ride home. lol The sales lady said kids come in all the time soaked from the fountains. lol
We stopped by Target on the way home since we don't have one near us, and checked out prices on headphones since Mama has been thinking about a better pair for when at the gym
Silly ole Bear. Bear's didn't know it, but we were secretly price shopping for a big boy bike for Bear's big Christmas present.
Ha ha ha Papa got him one now instead of waiting. lol Once Bear's saw it and got on it, he couldn't put it back. Papa Bear was mush is Baby Bear's hands. lol
We took him on his first big bike ride and he rode for over an hour. I am surprised he lasted so long. lol
We took Bear's to an Easter Egg hunt at the Zoo with the cool Iron Man costume his Papa bought him. And Bear's started school at his new school in Utah
I got to see Kat, whom hadn't seen since my wedding day 14 years earlier. Ohhhh I missed her. On my way home that day from seeing her I cried and cried that I would never have the sweet and amazing little family that she is blessed with. How if something happened to my bear I wasn't sealed to him for time and all eternity in the temple. My heart ached for the fact that I wouldn't be having any more kids, and for the little girl I longed to have.
The next day my beautiful friend Kat came through town on her way home. We let the boys play together for a little bit at the park. Ohhh how I wish we could do this more often.
After the park The Bear and I went to the zoo. A turkey nipped his little finger and almost ruined the whole thing.
It was a whirlwind visit. And he was only here for a few days. We got some family pictures taken, and tried to do the whole Trick-or-Treat thing with Bear's but he was coming down with a cold. So we went out to dinner instead.
The Bear and I got pretty sick right at the end of Papa's trip. But we had a great visit. Little did I know I had got pregnant while Chuck was visiting this time. Ooops!!
