Brooks and I got away for a few days on a couples retreat to Hot Springs, Arkansas! It was so nice not having any mommy responsibilities. Luckily Brooks’ parents came out to watch the boys so we didn’t have to worry about them. Here’s our house over looking the lake that we rented. It was awesome! It was 3 stories and had four master bedrooms!
Most of us headed up on Thursday night, but we didn’t arrive until late that evening so we spent the night just hanging out at the house. Friday, the guys headed off to golf and the girls headed to lunch and the spa! I had the most awesome facial! After the spa we headed home to clean up so we could make our dinner cruise on the lake. You should have seen some of the homes that were on the lake front…amazing!
The food was not so great, but the company was fantastic!
anybody notice the new short do I’m sporting? It’s a lot shorter than I wanted, but it’s growing on me.
The next day we headed to the horse races! This was the main reason for the trip. Every year we rent a suite at Lone Star Park here in Dallas so this year we thought we would do something a little different.
Brooks was the lucky one for the day! He hit 3 trifectas. Me? Not.One.Single.Race!! Errr. After the races were over we headed through the casino just to check them out for a minute. The guys lost a quick $40 in black jack and the girls were not so lucky on the slots. Then Mr. Lucky walks over sticks $10 in the slot machine and wins $76! Say What?! We decided to go home so we could make some dinner, but we lost Brooks. All of a sudden he comes walking around the corner with a voucher for $325!! He hit it on another slot machine. He went and cashed both of his winner vouchers in and we hit the road. Can you believe that?
Sunday morning we made the long 5 hour drive back. I couldn’t wait to see my boys. Blake looked as if he had grown in the few days I was gone and I even raced upstairs to wake Cole up from his nap just so I could love on him. Both boys were so happy to see us and we were happy to be back with our family. Hoping we can get away next year for another couples weekend!
