We had a wonderful day--and Grandma and Grandpa have the kids tonight.
We gave each other gifts:
We went up to the other good-sized town in the area after we dropped off the kids and had lunch, then went to a prepper's store (didn't have what we wanted), and an military surplus store (found something we didn't know we needed--isn't that always the way, though).
And then, we came back and went to a bookstore--something that isn't easy with book-loving kids. And a hobby store. And a liquor store, where I found something I've been wanting: Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream.
We ended up the day out at the place where we got married, and stood and watched the water (and water creatures, including at least one if not two otters) for a while. It was lovely, and peaceful. I wanna do it again, soon.
Not the gifts (though Odysseus is just happy he's found a good go-to gift for when I can't think of anything I want, and he can't think of anything else to give me--Jinhao fountain pens are very nice, and affordable). The afternoon with no kids to supervise (and yell at when they misbehave), and time spent with my best friend, and the other half of my soul.
