Well it only took five years and a friend getting married out of town, but Nick and I finally spent a night together away from the kids! I mean, I've gone away on girls trips before, and he has gone on guy adventures, but we have never both left for the night together. I think after five years and three kids, we were long overdue.
See that car seat back there? No baby inside!
We left the kids at home under the entrusted care of Grandma, and headed up to Adrian, MN to attend the wedding of one of Nick's long time, high school friends. The funny thing is, he (Brian) and his now wife (Ann) actually live in our same town. But we respect that Ann wanted to get married in her hometown. We got there early in true Nick fashion, thinking we'd grab a quick lunch and explore a bit before the wedding. Turns out, it was a really small town, so we ate lunch a Subway attached to a gas station, and found only one antique store to browse through, but it was still fun.
After the wedding we headed over to Sioux Falls, South Dakota for the reception. Here there was an abundance of places to explore, but sadly they were all mostly closed by the time we got there. So we just walked around a bit and I made Nick stop a bajillion times to take silly pictures.
The reception was a lot of fun, and a great chance to reconnect with lots of people who are now parents like us, and we hardly ever see :)
We tried to sleep in on Sunday morning, but sadly it just didn't happen. Go figure, huh? So we got up, and headed to the falls.
It was really pretty, although chilly.
Before leaving Sioux Falls, we had breakfast at an awesome little café, something we always dream of doing without kids. I mean, I can actually sit and eat my entire meal, and drink my coffee while its still hot? A little slice of Heaven right there. Plus, this latte was delicious.
Although brief, it was definitely refreshing. We enjoyed our time away and were ready to kiss the faces off our babies upon returning home. We're already dreaming up our next getaway...lets just hope its sooner than another five years!
