When Mops and Pops offered to keep the girls for a few days, we jumped at the opportunity! We had no plans other than a few projects here and there, but we knew it would be great fun for all parties involved.
Michael and I enjoyed some quiet, restful time together. We were able to meet for lunch a few times, and we even ventured out on a date at something like 9:00 on Saturday night. Michael got to work slightly longer hours, and I got to tackle a few nesting projects in the house. I caught up on some much-needed sleep and was even able to have a leisurely date at Panera with a good friend. The time was such a treat!
We missed the girls terribly, but it was a delight to get to go back to the newlywed days -- if just for a few nights. And while Mom assures me that we were missed too, it appears that the girls had a blast spending time with their Mops and Pops. Highlights of the long weekend included lots of dressing up, ice cream with sprinkles, baking brownies, and sparkly princess crafts.
And now the girls are back, sleeping sweetly in their little beds. We couldn't be more excited to have them home, nor could we be more thankful for the sweet time we had apart. What a blessing it is to have grandparents (on both sides!) that adore our babies!
