Since it was the first time leaving my babies, I wanted to stay close. We decided on Midway and it was absolutely the best decision ever. On Friday, our anniversary, we dropped the girls off at my sisters and headed out. We had bought a Groupon for The Homestead Resort. Well, upon trying to check in, we found out that Groupon never sent the information to the Homestead. Usually that would have been ok, but they were completely booked. Thankfully the Zermatt (their sister hotel) had space so we were able to get a room over there. It was an super nice place, and it looked like we were in Switzerland or something. (the only downside: no free breakfast and it ended up costing us $30 more. Still worth it though.)

After the Crater, we went and got pizza at this cute little Italian place. It was so good and fun and quaint.We then stopped by the store for some goodies and headed back to our hotel to swim. They had a great indoor/outdoor swimming pool, and two pretty great hot tubs. We then spent the rest of the night eating our candy and watching tv.
So, I should mention that I was so focused on getting everything packed for the kids I forgot a few key items. Namely: our toiletree bag, (which meant to toothbrushes, toothpaste, or deoderant for me to name a few) my pump (which really was awful) and my fan. With no fan noise, I couldn't get to sleep. Finally at about 2:30 my sweet husband called the lobby to see if they could send up a fan. They did and after that I slept great.
We had to check out by 11, so we mozied about, got ready, and left our hotel room. We then ate breakfast at the expensive hotel restaurant and walked around Zermatt and The Homestead for a bit. We walked to the top of the Crater, which had like a billion stairs, and my legs are just starting to not be sore. Midway is so beautiful! We decided if we ever get rich, we are buying a cabin there. And maybe retireing there when we are old.

It was such a fantastic weekend together, reconnecting. I'm not going to lie though. Picking up my babies from my sisters was the best. They were both so happy to see us. Maddi wouldn't stop grinning and bouncing. Abby couldn't wait to tell us all about her weekend. Thanks McGees for taking our cuties!
When we woke up Sunday morning, Sam told me he had taken Monday off so the fun continued the whole weekend. Monday we just hung out around the house and then went to a Bees game that night. We lost big time, but hey, I got my hotdog. (side note: I got a fancy hot dog. I think I will stick with normal hotdogs from here on out.)
It was the perfect weekend spent with the love of my life. Happy 5 years Sam. Here is to many, many more.
