Weekend Getaway with the Hubby!

This past weekend Mike and I ventured up to Minneapolis, without Sullivan. For the majority of Sullivan's life he's had both his parents with him all the time. There has been only a couple of nights where Mike or I have been away but never together. On Friday after work he headed up to Calmar to spend the night at my parents. The next morning we packed up our things and took Sullivan over to my sister's house and then we head to Minnesota. I knew Sullivan would be fine because he's very comfortable with my sister's family and she has two boys, one which is almost exactly a year older than Sull. My biggest concern was how he would do when he was tired. 

We got several updates from my sister, all of which were how much he was loving life, loving the "Cozy Coupe, " and loving Asher. We took our time get up to Minneapolis, stopped at a suburb to do a little shopping. Once we got to the big city we checked into our hotel and headed to one of my favorite places, IKEA! Gosh I love this store, I believe we spend a little over two hours in this place, but I could have easily doubled that. Of course I couldn't leave the place without not getting Sullivan something. This lucky little boy scored a circus tent. 

We then headed to Roseville to hit up the Crab Shack. I've been dying for crab legs ever since we left Seattle and ever since I was done being pregnant. They were great, definitely something I miss, but definitely not the same as Seattle. Can't beat fresh seafood right off the coast! I will return, someday....

After dinner we decided to something we would never get to do with Sullivan, or at least not for a while. We headed to the movie theater. We weren't overly impressed with the movie selection but I saw reviews on one I thought was worth a try. The Heat, featuring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It was actually pretty good and definitely had it's funny moments.

After that we called it a night. The next morning we woke up at our usual time as if Sullivan was right there with us, 6:30am. Got ready and hit the road before 8:00. Before heading out of town we got breakfast at Panera and then cruised to Rochester. I forgot to visit one of my other favorite stores in the cities but luckily they have one in Rochester, Trader Joes. Got a couple of goods and anxiously traveled south to go get our baby. 

Once we got there he was overjoyed to see us. Gave us big hugs and then continued to play. My wonderful sister filled his belly before we had another hour and twenty minutes back home to Cedar Falls. We said our good byes, gave kisses and played with the Cozy Coupe one last time before throwing a little tantrum not wanting to leave that red and yellow car. He sure had fun and seemed to not miss us at all. I'm so glad he was good for Jer and Stac. Thank you both for taking Sull in and giving us some time to ourselves. We love you!
