Patrick surprised me a month ago. He had his parents watch the girls while we stayed in a Cabin in S. IL. It was beautiful we did some intense hiking, and some not so intense hiking. We happened upon a wine trail, and that was a great highlight. Driving around sampling wine, looking at the scenery, and talking. Talking about things that didn't involve what Curious George was doing. We were free to not plan, and free from planning something based on nap/ snack/ the size of Emma's bladder.
We both may be a bit nutty ;) We may get in the habit of doing our own things, and forgetting to work as a couple. We may find that we are too busy for time together, but in the end we do complete each other. I look forward to many more years!
