James and I are back from a refreshing and relaxing weekend, just as James requested for his birthday. The actual day is Wednesday but an early celebration was fitting. We had a great time but the details are fairly uneventful.
We left late morning on Saturday and went to Wal-Mart and did our back to school shopping, which was a big help to me. I can’t believe it starts next Thursday. The girls seem ready and now I am too.
I’ve been waiting to see a new area of development that James is involved in doing cabinet installation and manufacturing and installing laminated countertops for. Some of the countertops are corian or marble but he will be doing his share of countertops, too. Touring fully furnished, primo homes is not a fun thing to do with children. This was my chance!
Here are some pictures. We pray for the success of this area of development!

The beautiful kitchen. It took many man hours to install.
A glimpse at the unique new neighborhood.
By the time we had toured several of the houses, it was time to check in at the hotel. We stayed in the Sheraton on the plaza. It’s a gorgeous hotel. Our room was sweet and relaxing. We enjoyed eating out at one of our favorite hangouts, when we make it to the city.
Sunday we watched Batman Begins, which is an excellent movie…really, it is. It’s definitely worth seeing, I kid you not.
We did some walking. The architecture and fountains are really fun to look at. There was a great band playing swing and big band stuff.
Well, those are the highlights! Oh, I nearly forgot my delicious custard dessert. Good desserts are note worthy!
I enjoyed spending time alone with James. I also enjoyed seeing him relax a little and let go of some stress. It was a much needed time for us and I am thankful for our parents for helping us out so much. The kids had a blast and were absolutely wore out last night!
