Fabulous Weekend Getaway!

We had an absolute awesome weekend. the Girls spoiled me with attention and surprises for my birthday, and the Hosts were so nice and accomodating. As you can see we had lots of photo op's and we had some great orderves and a little wine tasting that was enjoyed. We all were tickled by my little 9year old niece that went with us. She was busy scrapping along side of us and ishooked on the xyron sticker maker. My sister loved the cricut machine for all her creativwe cutting. This was her first encounter with scrapbooking and she said she's got the 'fever' and she's hooked. My friend Joy has scrapped on several occasions but I think after this weekend she is hooked. Of course My friend Layla and I were just dying to get them all into die hard mode along with us. they are well on the way until about 10pm, then they pooped out on us. We on the other hand were up to about 2am and wished we would have stayed up later because we weren't that tired. We had a great time getting to know one another better and girl talk was a little embarrassing for the 9yr old at times but all in all she thrived well. As you can see by some of the pics we had a few crazy moments. The next weekender is in the process of being planned and we're taking more with us this time.
We were all sad to leave even tho we missed are litle ones and the big guy's as well. I hope everyone else will have a time as rewarding and unforgetable as what we did. God bless and blog again soon, Christina

P.S. I am back and both of my children seem to have chicken pox. My 3year old had a very light case a year and a half ago but evidently not enough because he has a lot now. Little Mister just has a medium case. Haha you probably didn't think you could have small, medium , or large cases huh.
P.S.S. I wanted to try to summ up one of my favorite times in the weekend but it's not sumable, I guess you need to go on a getaway and see how fun it is!!

So glad you had a good time. I hope I can go next time. Sorry we gave you the pox, but I guess it's better now than when they're older. Hope they get over it soon. Katrina

ohhh this looks like SO.MUCH.FUN! :) Such renewal and refreshment. You took some awesome pictures. I am really thrilled for you!
Getting met by the chicken pox was a bit of a clash back into reality huh?! I do hope they will clear up quickly.:(

Great pics! That place looks so sweet and charming!

Sorry about the pox--my kids had it in February; the ones that did not get the vax had it for about 3 days--just spots (and not lots) but (ironically) my one who did get the vax was in her bed moaning with a high fever for 4 days! My advice--lots of Aveeno Oatmeal baths!!
