Ali Loves Dave

How did I get so lucky? Tomorrow I get to go out of town to a friend's cabin to scrapbook with a group of girls. Hooray! But those who know me know it is extremely hard for me to leave my boys (including Dave). So I just got finished packing up the car and getting everything ready here at home so everyone has everything they need, and I'm thinking - God gave me such a great guy! Dave encourages me to go on these weekend trips to relax and clear my head and get away from the everyday life of "mom".

He had something he would have liked to do this weekend, but instead he put off those plans so I could do what I wanted to do. He's actually done that a lot throughout our marriage. And I just want him to know how much I appreciate it. I feel blessed that we can do things like this for each other, and I love and respect him more each and every day. I know he will do something fun with the boys while I'm gone, and they'll all have a great time. Hopefully that something might include buying me a new dishwasher? Ha!

Ali + Dave = FOREVER

That's sweet Ali, does Dave read your blog? I'm sitting here waiting patiently to leave! My kids are all still sleeping, but I have to start waking them up. See you in about two hours!

I hope you had a great weekend! It's always fun to get away and get refreshed. I was in Portland with Kristal and we had a great time!! You've got a pretty cool sister!

Kristal (Auntie Tis) told me you were at her game last night. I was there but was bouncing between gyms so I never sat in the bleachers. Dang...I would have loved to visit with you. I think it's pretty special that you support her coaching by coming to her game!
