Weekend Get-a-way!

Matt and I recently went away for the weekend to celebrate our 4th anniversary. This was our first weekend away from Grace so we didn't want to go far. We ended up at a beautiful B&B in Nags Head, NC. It was great but we really missed Grace a lot!

Before Grace and baby girl to be we traveled a lot. We have been to Mexico twice (once on our honeymoon and loved it so much went back 6 months later) and then celebrated our 2nd anniversary in Punta Cana, DR. We had been planning our third anniversary trip to Italy when we found out that we were pregnant with Grace. But who can compare the two..obviously Italy can wait...we were so thrilled with the news of Grace's birth.

Now with Grace getting older and traveling even better than she did last summer, we just want to take her everywhere with us. She is the queen of road trips. At just three and half months old we took her to GA, TN, and AL for a 10 day adventure. I couldn't believe how well she did! I think she is going to love road trips like her mom and dad. :)

Now with baby girl #2 on her way, we new if we didn't get away now just the two of us, it might not happen for a very long time. It was nice to get away with no agenda or schedules. We went to a late movie, slept in, ate good food, and layed on the beach and relaxed all day. However, the topic of many a conversation was GRACE! We were at dinner one night when I saw the cutest little girl...a few months older than Grace....laughing and hugging her Grandpap...when all of a sudden...I started crying! At that moment, Matt and I realized that as much as we needed our time away that we wanted to take Grace everywhere we went. We wanted to experience all our vacations and get-a-ways with her. So as much fun as we did have I don't know that we'll do again anytime soon.

The McClain Clan isn't just the two of us's the four of us!!! That is still so crazy to think about. In less than two years we are going from two to four! And we couldn't imagine life any other way!!
