A Mini Vacation Celebration

My wonderful husband of almost 20 years and I were able to get away for two full days and nights to a friend's beautiful penthouse flat in downtown Sacramento last week. Thank you to Rob for the use of your elegant getaway! It was utterly delightful and something we have not done for 13 (!!) years and you made it possible. Thank you!

Here are a few pictures of our weekend home...

Isn't it just lovely!? We had such a great time. It was two of the most relaxing days we have ever had. 

Thank you to our dear and precious friends, James and Charlotte, for watching our children while we were gone. Thank you for your love and faithful friendship. Life would simply not be the same without you and your family! 

What did they do, you ask? A lot of Rock Band, great food, wonderful conversation,
and a giant water fight!!

(The common denominator here is James...)

Future discus thrower? ;)

James did get it in the end!

She and Rocky were hiding from the water!

Thank you again, to Rob, James and Charlotte. We could not have done it without you!

Kate, My husband and I love to take those special times away at B&B's. So glad you had the chance for your special get-a-way at such a restful and lovely place. I would enjoy seeing a comment from you on my blog which I write about faith and care for aging parents.

We had so much fun with the kids!! We are already making plans for this to happen again next year....I think we have started a new tradition. :-)

Love you so much, dear friend!
