B and I rarely (pretty much never) leave our kiddos to go out of town.
Recently an event was planned through Brandon’s office which would give us a short get away to host a client on an overnight trip.
It was terrible timing because Cullen was SO so sick, but having Blakely with us for over 4 years and my mom here on Saturday I knew that he would be in capable hands. I laid out the list of meds, times and breathing treatments for our little man, packed our bags and we were officially out on Hall Pass for the night!
I am SO disappointed that I didn’t take many pictures at all. We rode a limo bus with 20 people and it made the 2 1/2 hour ride seem closer to 30 minutes because we had so much fun.
We arrived at the resort/casino right at noon, which was just perfect for some Pool time.
It was so nice to relax in a real Adult pool with no kiddos splashing and screaming! However, our adult time was short lived when hurricane force winds blew in and the torrential down pours began. It has literally been raining in Houston for over a week and I thought maybe we would escape it by visiting a different state, but no such luck. There really aren’t many options when you are at a casino and you can’t go outside, so off to the casino we went. I’m not a big gambler, but Brandon does love to play craps. I gave him some cash and disappeared with the girls. I would check on him periodically and it seemed like every time I did the news was worse than it was the time before. Soon, B was out of money and it was off to the room to get ready for dinner.
This is when the fun really began:
~ One hamburger eating contest…with my hubby declared a WINNER
~ A successful run at the craps table…with ME declared a WINNER
~ A 6am bedtime…with NO ONE considered a WINNER
~ An exiting game of craps for B that made him a WINNER
Before we knew it we were back on the limo bus and headed home. After 4 hours of sleep it was a very long trip back and an even longer recovery on Monday, but by Tuesday it was business as usual around here.
Unfortunately, this virus (or whatever it has now become) made it’s way to Ellie and back to me…AGAIN. This weekend I actually thought that I may be the one going to the ER. This junk that we picked up has been awful for a month now!
I missed my babies, but it was a total blast to get away for a one night hall pass on our adults only get away!
You work harder than anyone I know. I am beyond thankful that we are partners in crime on this journey called Life! We are awesome parents to our little miracles when we are at home, but we sure do know how to have fun together still!!! I love you babe!
Total downpour! The lights actually went out for a minute which forced us to walk down the fire escape for 7 floors!
This thing was HUGE! I am amazed that he actually finished it!
So excited to cash those chips in!
