What Happens In Vegas...

Tomorrow morning we head off to Vegas, for three whole days! I'm so excited to have this opportunity to spend time with Josh and get a break from day to day life!

(Random shout out to my awesome Sis and Bro who are picking up the parental slack in our absence. Here's hoping the kids don't have you tied up and in the closet when we return!)

With work, school, the munchkins and the myriad of other responsibilities that we deal with on a daily basis, sometimes it's hard to remember that we need to make time to connect as partners. We need time to have conversations that don't get interrupted. We need time to cuddle, without a child (or two! or three! or a cat!) squeezing in between us. We need time just be Leeann and Josh, without the demands of being Mommy and Daddy, at the same time.

This is the longest that we have ever left the kids. Prior to this, it was about 2.5 days...we're coming in at just about a full 3 days this time. It is for sure the furthest we have ever gone from them. That is a little scary, but I know that they are in capable hands and I'm pretty sure my house will still be standing, when we return.

So...adios! Mommy and Daddy have left the building! Hopefully, when we return, we will be well rested and ready to face reality. If not..perhaps there will be a little more hiding room in that closet... ;)
