Weekend Away

Next weekend Erin and I are headed off to relax at the Deployed Soldiers Family Foundation weekend getaway in Dallas. I think by the time we reach Dallas after driving three hours with 4 kids, we might need a weekend getaway....with a stiff drink!

Anyway, it sounds like a lot of fun and we are signed up to get our haircut. There are also massages, etc. The kids will have age appropriate activities and the hotel where we are staying has an indoor/outdoor pool. I can tell you where my kids will be at night!

These weekends are offered periodically to Fort Hood spouses so that they might have a reprieve from the daily grind. There are tons of volunteers and Tucker will even have his own caregiver! (Once they meet Abs and Junior they might want to get some one-on-one defense on them as well.)

And Erin wrote nice things about me here. :)

This sounds fantastic! My hubby is still here, but will be deploying in the nearish future. I'll have to save the link. (Speaking of the link, blogger did something weird to yours and it didn't work. It added a "www.blogger.com" in front of the actual link.)

I can't remember how I found your blog, but I'm glad I did!

I am an Army wife also, stationed at Ft. Riley. My husband is deploying again also.

I just wanted to say hi!
