Monday morning started out like any day. Zak and I got up and shared anniversary cards and started getting ready for the day. Zak got dressed, grabbed his briefcase and all of his work stuff and headed out telling me he'd try to be home early. We had decided to do dinner in because we had such big plans for Saturday and I was totally okay with that. After Zak left the boys and I went on with out morning routine and about 45 minutes later Zak came walking in, kicked off his shoes, handed me a huge bouquet of pink flowers and a framed picture. The frame has to be one of my all time favorite gifts, ever. It was a family picture made up of 800 photos (from the time Colton was one year old) that Zak hand picked. Its such a special thoughtful gift. He told me he was home for the day and we would be going to Cheesecake that night. I was so surprised! Although it seems small it was such a wonderful surprise because I had NO idea! We spent the day playing and hanging out and even had a family trip to HEB. That night we went to Cheesecake with the boys and had one of my favorite all time family dinners. The boys were so well behaved and we laughed, ate too much, and really really enjoyed ourselves. Zak made me feel so special all day.
Saturday was the day we were going to celebrate. Pa (my sis in law, Andi) agreed to come down to watcvhthe boys and offered to take them for the whole day to do something fun so we could have the whole day to ourselves. We didn't realize how much we needed that. It was such a great day! Pa and Byrd showed up around 10 and whisked the boys away. Zak and I headed to the Urban Retreat where we had a wonderful couples message. We went to Katzs Deli for a quick snack and then stopped at Academy to get Zak and new shirt. He insisted we go try to find me a new outfit but I just wasn't in the mood to shop. We stopped at a couple stores and looked around but I didn't fall in love with anything. So, we headed home to get ready for a nice dinner. On the way to dinner we stopped at the Chevy dealership and visited my Tahoe (that I'll get one day). We ate that night at Taste of Texas (our favorite)! We enjoyed the day together so much and like I said we had no idea how much we needed that alone time. It was refreshing!
While we were out enjoying ourselves the boys didn't miss us a bit. They spent the day with family at the boat show, Chuckie Cheese and ended the day playing hard at Gaga and PawPaws. (Thank you Andi and Byrd for taking our boys for the day. You have no idea how much we appreciate it. )
