Hot Springs Get-Away

For my birthday, Jim took me on a three-day get away to Hot Springs, Arkansas. We stayed at the Hamilton House Bed and Breakfast on Hamilton Lake. I must admit this was my first time at a bed and breakfast so I was a little nervous as we made reservations. You never know what you are going to get looking at pictures on the Internet. It was so pretty and perfect. We had a lot of fun doing things that we don’t usually get to do together, ALONE!

We arrived on Sunday night and we went out to eat, just the two of us. Very quiet!

Monday morning we got up and ate breakfast and then went for a 2 mile run. Jim was and still is determined that I was trying to kill him. I wasn’t but as I stated earlier I have to train if I am planning to run a 10k in July. I did enjoy getting to exercise with him. Later that day we went shopping, to Garvin Gardens, out to dinner and enjoy a nice stroll through downtown Hot Springs. Ending the evening with a bit of ice cream.

Tuesday morning was the same, breakfast and exercise.:-) However, our afternoon consisted of a great massage and we ended the night with a movie and a yummy McDonald’s Strawberry Milkshake.

Wednesday we packed up and headed home. It was nice to have some time but Jim kept telling me, “You don’t know what to do with yourself without those kiddos.” I guess I stay so busy with them I am lost without them. I love being a mommy.

Here are a few pictures from our trip:

All of these pictures were taken at Garvin Gardens. You have to get creative when you are taking pictures of each other. Actually, I had to help Jim think outside of the box. We had fun!

As we were leaving the gardens Jim saw this sign and just busted out laughing. He asked me take a picture. Do you see the humor?Special thanks to Nana, Jim’s mom, for watching the kids for us as we retreated for a few days.
