I *Heart* Weekends

I especially *heart* weekends with my sweetheart, and we had the wonderful opportunity to make Valentine's Day weekend all about us!

My parents had made plans to leave town for the weekend, and offered us their house as a get-away. What with the King Size bed, hot tub, hammock, and delightful outside cats, the only difference between being there and being at a bed and breakfast was that we had to deal with our own breakfast!

Friday night we learned how to broil a steak. I was very thankful for Joshua and his watchful eye. We plopped a steak as big as my arm on that pan and stashed it in the oven on broil. I then proceeded to leave the room. I figured we had a good twenty or thirty minutes. I am not sure I had gotten to the next room when Joshua announced that the meat thermometer claimed our steak was done! Seriously, it was not even ten minutes. And that was a b-i-g steak! And good, too!

The rest of the weekend was a little less dramatic. If you call that dramatic. Which I don't normally, given that my life revolves much around having four little children. But isn't it lovely to say that the broiling of a steak was the most drama of the whole weekend?

No, the rest of the weekend was spent playing darts, lounging in the hot tub, eating out, and riding all over the town that I grew up in, making note of all the changes that have taken place over the years.

What? Our kids? Well, they were spending the weekend with various grandparents, except for Anna. She kind of needs me, since I am her food supply and all. =)

Thanks Daddy & Mom, for a relaxing weekend. We had a lovely time and hope your weekend was a good as ours was!
