This weekend was one for the books! Staycation, celebrating our 5 years of knowing each other, and our first night away from Gabe!
Last year for our anniversary we went to Target after work, got stuck in traffic, and then ate take out at 7:30 at night while the baby cried. This year we decided to treat ourselves and spent 2 nights at the Four Seasons Seattle. The weather just happened to hit 90 degrees on Saturday. It was at July anniversary miracle.
The Four Seasons were kind enough to supply us with a real crib, complete with bumpers and sheets and a quilt. Plus all the Johnson and Johnson baby products you could ever wish for AND a little stuffed otter. This is how traveling with small children SHOULD be!
Our wedding anniversary isn’t until Wednesday, but Wednesdays are no fun. The hotel surprised us with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries shortly after checking in. Best Friday afternoon ever.
My parents also surprised us with a beautiful bouquet in our room when we got there. Totally stunning.
We ordered room service for dinner (easier to wrangle a baby) and afterwards headed down to the pool.
That night the babe woke up about 700 times coughing and crying because of the coughing (just getting over a cold) but then thankfully slept in until 8.
Of course we weren’t sleeping because I had schedule a breakfast delivery for 7:00 am thinking he would for sure be up by 6:30 at the latest.
He slept through opening the blinds, breakfast delivery, and Kamel and I munching away directly next to him. Screw all of that whispering we do at home!!
In the GIANT tub that morning we took a family bubble bath. It was awesome and so fun and the tub was truly as big as a hot tub. Kamel now wants one when we buy a house and will settle for nothing less. Ha.
Then we dropped Gabe off with Claire back at our place and Kamel and I got the rest of the day to hang out with just each other.
Grown Up Spaghettios.
After an amazing night’s sleep baby free, we were off to breakfast and the pool on Sunday!
And then it was time to pack up, watch soccer, and head back home to our baby (Thanks for tag team babysitting Emma!)
(Kamel is forever stylish in even the most mundane of tasks.)
