I decided last Sunday evening to plan a surprise trip partially to celebrate my wonderful husband's birthday. We wanted to do something special before he leaves for Officer Candidate School in June too so this was an awesome opportunity.
We got a great deal on 2 round trip tickets and 7 nights at a hotel. We were also able to get our rental car for free for the whole week because of our United Mileage Debit Card.
Joseph did awesome on all the airplane rides. We had two on the way to Colorado Springs and two on the way back home to Detroit. Joseph is an amazing kid. He slept in a double bed almost completely by himself the whole week. He enjoyed seeing the sights and meeting new people.
All in all it was an awesome trip. We couldn't have asked for it to go better. We are blessed to have such a mellow, well behaved toddler.
It was great to get away and have family time without distractions and "real" life stuff getting in the way. It was just what we needed, and I'm so thankful that we were able to spontaneously take this trip.
