Weekend Recap

I hope you all had a great weekend! We ended up with an accidental 3 day together so we were all very happy about that : )

On Friday we woke up bright and early to head to a marriage retreat with our Battalion Chaplain for the morning which we were excited for because 1. we think he's great and 2. who doesn't need to sit and focus on marriage every now and then and 3. free childcare and a beautiful view of the Potomac...hello! Slight problem though, the childcare didn't show up and so the retreat ended up getting cancelled and we were all sent home. Mr Soldier and I were disappointed obviously because we love learning new things and bringing the Bible into our marriage BUT it was 84 degrees outside and we suddenly had the whole day together so we looked on the bright side, packed a picnic and a bag and headed to the pool with the girls.

On Friday night we had a babysitter come over so that we could go on a quick date night so we filled some solo cups with wine, packed ANOTHER picnic and walked down the road to the park where they have free concerts on Friday. It was low key and perfect and the singers were great!

Saturday was another fun day at the pool with the kids and one thing I have worked out is that I am guaranteed a naptime from both girls if we wear them out with sunshine and swimming in the morning which is always a good thing! Then Saturday night we had my old college roommate and her new husband come over for dinner...Mexican themed of course because coronas, sangria and tacos are always a hit with people. It was so great to see her after 5 years apart!

By the time we got to Sunday we were completely exhausted so we had a lazy pajama day and ate way too much food and watched about 3 movies...when I say watched I mean with kids climbing on us and pressing pause a million times but hey that's life : )


  1. Yay for 3 day weekends!! Glad you guys had a great time together!

  2. Awe sounds like such a nice weekend and time well spent together!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! And what a sweet date night.

  4. FUNSIES!!! That date night sounds perfect! Can't wait for our lives to calm down enough to do the same :)
