OH, what a weekend I had :)

The hubby and I decided that we needed some quality time alone together so that is just what we did. I took Friday off of work and we went camping just the two of us. Well if that is what you want to call it. The next 3 pictures were of the passengers in my car on the way to the campground.
I guess Motley was waiting for me to buckle him in. I am not a bad driver.

Sophie is my front seat companion, or spoiled brat, whichever.

And Shadow, well he is just a big dork. So if you want to call that camping alone you can, but I wouldn't. You see, Sophi is a spoiled dog and heaven forbid I go in the camper to use the bathroom and not take her with me. If I leave her outside, she whines till I come back. Then there is Motley, who thought he needed to try and eat every dog that walked by our campsite. I am not sure who he thought he was. Then there is Shadow who is our air-conditioner baby who wants to stay in the camper with the air on but you have to leave the door open so he can see out. We do keep the screen door closed but I couldn't get a pic of him with it shut.
On Saturday, our daughter and her boyfriend came down to eat supper with us. The little turd that she is brought me this Birthday Cake. I told her "That is not even funny!" They all got a kick out of it. I hate getting old.

For supper I fixed hamburgers and smoked sausage, and since I was outside by myself cooking the sausage I thought I would just snap a picture of that too. I guess you could say I was bored. They were all in getting the burgers fixed. Eww, I don't eat hamburgers unless I have to.

Everything was going really well for the weekend, except the rain. It rained for about 3 hours on Saturday, not a hard rain just a slow rain.That's why we had to cook on the little Charcoal grill. I was going to cook over the fire, but well, you know the rain always wins when it comes to that.
Hubby does not like getting wet and even though we were sitting under the awning he was getting a little wet when the wind blew so he needed an umbrella. Of course we had to laugh at him a bit for that. The next picture is my Hubby and daughter.

So, after the kids left, I call them kids but they are 20 and 21, (who by the way took all 3 dogs home with them:) ) I decided it was margarita time. So I preceded to consume some Jose Curevo. Umm, they were so yummy!!

We spent some quality time sitting around the fire talking about everything that we never get the chance to talk about. Things from what we did yesterday to what we want to do next year. We really had a great time. And boy I needed that. Time alone with the Hubby!! I am always busy with the daycare kiddos and he is always off working on something somewhere or another.

Then, that's when it happened. I ran out of margarita mix. Not a good thing since Hubby asked me earlier when we ran to get more tequila if I needed more mix and silly me said "Nope, I got enough." WTH was I thinking? You can never have enough margarita mix, especially when you are spending the weekend alone with the Hubs! But that was okay I guess, I got over it.

So, needless to say, I am recharged for the time being. I totally loved getting to spend the weekend with him without kiddos saying "Tammy", "Tammy", "Tammy" and someone calling him and saying "Can you come fix this?" or "My car is broke down, can you help?" or "Hey man, we are drinking some beer, want to come over and drink some, too?" It is never a dull moment at our house. It's probably a good thing though, because that is what pays the bills....and pays for camping.

I do recommend that everyone spend time alone with their spouse. It revitalizes a lot of things. I just wish I could do it way more often.
