Fun Weekend - Special Stuff

Last weekend Jason and I got to go on a mini weekend away. Kristen, Grammy and Grandpa stayed the night so we could get away. It's SO nice to do that! Although - as much as I want a break from the babies I miss them SO much. We stayed in Boise and drove around, ran some errands. Then we ate at Tusconos (sp). My new FAVE restaurant! I loved it!! I walked out of there 10lbs heavier though. They just kept bringing more and more and more meat! And the salad bar had so much good food that you had to taste. And then there was the dessert..... Then we watched movies all night. We slept in the next morning, (YEA) Jason snuck out and and washed and cleaned out the car and brought me coffee. Then went to IHOP for breakfast and a Costco run. Doesn't sound like the fanciest of dates but it was so nice!

(This doesn't look like a lot of food - but by the end - it REALLY is!!)

(Red up means NO MORE FOOD!)
We also stopped at my Grandma's grave. I had not been back since her funeral and really wanted to visit. It was a really hard visit. It seems like the hurt and pain of her passing has not had a chance to really happen with me yet. But the last month I have just been struggling! Things are finally seeming real and final and I am having a hard time dealing with that. Her house is being packed up, things being sold and my Grandpa going more and more downhill. I just miss her so much and hate to think she is actually gone. My only hope is I do know I will see her again - in Heaven! I was able to get a quilt of hers that I love and her coffee table. It's so special to have some things in the house that I can say were hers!

Looks like you guys had a great time! And you get to go out tonight, too! Have fun!

(I am glad that you were able to have some of your Grandma's things that can be a daily reminder of the good memories you have of her!)
