Suprise Weekend

So Friday morning Philip came home way early. I went downstairs to greet him and ask him what he was doing home when I had just called and he was in a meeting. Well his answer was go change, we are leaving for the weekend. I was in shock.

He had totally surprised me by packing our clothes, arranging a babysitter, and everything. I was so shocked and overwhelmed with excitement that I became emotional for some reason. Poor Philip was probably thinking he married a psycho.

I had been telling him for a long time that we should go on a vacation together and get a sitter for Summer. For me it has been needed for a year or so. I think I just needed this emotionally etc.

So, we left and took Summer to our friends house. We then took off to San Antonio for the night. Philip had completely pulled this off without me knowing.

This is the view from our patio looking down at the Riverwalk. It looks a lot better in person.

Enjoying the patio.

I had to take a photo when we first arrived of the room. It is not everyday that I will be staying at a nice room at Westin.

We enjoyed a fancy dinner at the Italian restaurant inside the Westin. I don't remember the name. Zocca or something. It is too dark, but that is the Riverwalk behind us.

Summer enjoyed the dress and bracelets we brought her back from the Mexican Market there.

We loved being by ourselves, and the freedom we had for a night. But we really enjoyed seeing Summer again. I think it is mandatory for couples to get out for themselves, but really who would want to be without kids again once you have them. I could not imagine it.

I am so thankful to Philip for all he does. He totally surprised me, and I don't think he really realizes just how much I appreciate all the work he did to surprise me. Thanks again for the amazing trip.

How fun. That was totally sweet of him to plan that. I'm in so need of a vacation away from the girls, so I told my husband he can watch the girls tonight while I go grocery shopping at Walmart. I'm glad you got a vacation with your hubby.

Way to go, Philip! You totally win the "husband of the day" award. I thought you were a pretty cool guy before, but now you're 10 times cooler for being so suave :)
