Zach and my 9 year wedding anniversary is in a couple weeks. To celebrate, we took advantage of doting and willing grandparents by leaving the kids with them and escaping to San Antonio for two nights. We did this about 3 years ago, too...it was a great break then, and even more welcome now. The fall semesters were great in many ways, but Zach was so busy with, well, everything that we hardly spent any time together (and looking ahead, the first couple months of the new year may be just as busy). We did a few touristy things like the Riverwalk and strolling through the King William district (everything looked so pretty all decorated for Christmas), but focused mostly on something we rarely get to do-- just hang out together, no distractions.
Yeah, it was really nice.
