An Early Valentine’s Getaway

So last week, after dinner one night, Justin asks Tristan if he’d given me the picture he made for me yet.  I was smiling, wondering if Justin had done a craft with Tristan?  Then, Justin brings out this cute little note written to me from “Tristan.”  How cute is that?

I was blown away and so excited for our pre-Valentine’s weekend away.  Justin had Grandpa come in town to help Aunt Co-Co with Tristan for a night and two days while we got to getaway and have some sweet couple time together.  Believe it or not, we’d never taken a night away from our little man since he’d been born.

So we packed a small bag and left Saturday around lunch.  We went shopping a little then had a nice lunch at LaMadeline!  Justin would never usually break the doors of that place, so I was extra appreciative!  Then we went to an afternoon showing of “Up in the Air.”  Was a little disappointed in that movie, but still fun to get out and go to the movies together.
