Its A Trip!

Yep, the hubs and I hit the road for our first weekend away since we brought Silas home. David made all the arrangements, he really is an amazing husband, I feel so blessed to be married to such a thoughtful man. Thanks babe, I had a blast just being "US".

My sweet friend Sarah kept our babies so we could get some time away, all alone. My amazing husband borrowed our friends convertible Mustang and off we went to Sedona. A night at an amazing hotel with an amazing view, fireplace, peace and quiet, late dinner, a walk under the stars, and just spending time together was exactly what we needed!

David and I both share a passion for photography, we haven't had time to just experiment with our cameras without kids so we capitalized on the opportunity. I love seeing what David see's at the exact same spot I'm at with a completely different "eye". We had a great time, hiked up in the rocks, drove all over with the top down feeling the wind in our faces, truly a weekend to remember. Here's some pictures from our trip.















And when we returned, the kids were thrilled to have us back, Mr Silas did great, Sarah made all kinds of fun things with the babies, and I can honestly say I didn't worry about them a bit. I knew they were in great hands. Olivia told us she didn't want us to go away again cause she missed us too much. Thank you for watching them Sarah!! (Evan, thank you for sharing your mommy) ;)

Sound like a fun time to me. I love Sedona. However we are on the East coast now so it looks a little bit diferent. But we love it here as well. Fall in New England is a heaven for photographers!

What a great thing to do. When Mommy and Daddy are happy.....then the "babies" are happy.

Great pictures! It looks so warm and lovely. I'm thinking about turning on the heater. No joke, it's freezing here. Hopefully by the time you guys come it will be nice!!!!
