Happy Mother's Day!

So this may seem "late", but let me explain. For mother's day, David gave me a gift certificate for a night's stay at the Inn at Virginia Tech with breakfast.

We decided we wanted to use it before mini-chinny #2 makes his/her appearance, so we settled on this past Friday night, July 8. David talked to Jeanette, and she was happy to come spend the night with her goddaughter. So Daisy and Jeanette had a sleepover at home, and David and I went "away" for the night to the Inn (which is about 2 miles from our house, in case you are wondering).

After we got checked in, we headed up to our room and I immediately enjoyed a chance to put my feet up.

I was craving the strawberry poppyseed summer salad from Panera, and it is a block away from the Inn, so we went there for dinner. We were going to walk, but it looked like rain, so we drove. Good thing, because after we finished, there was a torential downpour! Glad we weren't out in that walking.

We grabbed a movie from the redbox machine at Kroger and headed back to the Inn. We watched the movie on our laptop and just relaxed. We both were exhausted and were asleep by 10:30.

It was nice to have a huge king bed to spread out in, and we both slept well. I got up to use the bathroom at least 4 times, but that's normal these days, and I didn't have any problems going back to sleep. It was nice knowing Daisy was taken care of and not worrying about listening into the monitor or her waking up.

I got up about 7:30 and took a warm bath. David woke up about 8:00 and we took our time showering and getting ready and hit the breakfast buffet around 9:00. We made it home shortly after 10am to find Daisy and Jeanette playing happily.

It was a nice relaxing "Mother's Day" night! :)
