Anniversary Getaway

Friday, January 15, 2010
My adorable husband surprised me with a little getaway for our Anniversary.
At midnight {Friday, January 15th} he told me to look under my pillow..and there was the sweetest card. Inside the card was a little note that told me to pack up for one night, my sweet mother-in-law was coming to watch the boys, it was a surprise where we were going, and we were leaving at 9am on Saturday. I was sooo excited to have a little getaway with him {i adore my boys, but i love time with just us}. Oh, and he told me he would take our son, Tristan to school and I could sleep in...what a sweet husband! That was a treat because I get up every morning and get him ready for school, pack his lunch, and take him to school. After John David got back from dropping Tristan off he came in the room smiling... he had another surprise! He took off work!! YEAH!! I was so excited! We had a great time and Deacon was so excited too. We went to an amazing Mexican Restaurant for lunch, looked at our Wedding pictures, I tried on my wedding dress..which it was a little big, and talked about our wedding 10 years ago.
I. Love. This. Man.

I could not wait for this day. We got up, loaded the truck, and left the house about 9:30am. My mind was turning.. where is he taking me? Austin? The Hill Country? Where?? We drove through Houston..then turned on I10. I pulled out my phone and looked at the map... still trying to figure it out. We drove about 2 hours. All the places I thought we were going were getting scratched through. Finally I asked him "Are you taking me to the Alamo?" He looked at me with the straighted face possible {better than I could have done} and said, "why do you say that?" I know my husband and the places I thought he might take me were not on the route. I knew he would not go through San Antonio to get to these places. So, that only left... him taking me to the Alamo.

We had a fantastic time staying on the riverwalk, eating tons of Mexican Food, walking around, riding the boat on the riverwalk, listening to live music...

and Enjoying Each Other!

Happy 10th Anniversary Love
Thank you for surprising me with this getaway

{This picture makes me laugh! I was trying to take a picture of the room number: the door was shutting, he was trying to catch the door for me, he had no idea what I was doing, he was being goofy when I told him what I was doing...and this was the cute picture I captured}

{John David was not making this picture process easy for me... I had to set the timer every time. I'm laughing at the 2nd try.. I was not mad...haha.. the timer went off and I was not paying attention}

Enjoying the riverwalk:
