This past weekend, Ben and I were able to get away from Chi-town and spend some time together before he leaves! Grandma (B's mom) came all the way up here to watch the boys for the weekend:) Ben and I went to Madison, Wisconsin and stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast! We had such an amazing time. The innkeepers serve a gourmet breakfast each morning and it is such a relaxing atmosphere ( a little different from where we live!). We went to the Dane County Farmer's Market on Saturday, which was voted the best farmer's market in the US!! It is 4 blocks long, all around their capital building. They had veggies and fruits, wisconsin cheese, syrup, baked goods, crafts...We spent a few hours there!
We met another couple at breakfast that ended up living just a few streets away from us! Strange! We had lunch at a crazy place called Ella's Deli (http://www.ellas-deli.com) that had toys hanging all over the walls and ceiling that moved, a carousel, and amazing ice cream! We both had expresso oreo ice cream...mmmm...It was a relaxing weekend, getting to eat out two times (when does that ever happen!!), watching movies, sitting down by the lake....Thank you so much for those of you that prayed for us this past weekend. We haven't been away together since before Samuel was born so this trip was LONG overdue! We felt so peaceful and the boys did so well with Grandma! I had been worried because Samuel had the flu on Friday but they were SO good. They had undivided Grandma-time, so who wouldn't be happy?! If anyone ever wants to get away, I'd highly recommend madison, especially the bed and breakfast where we stayed. As you can see from the pictures, the Speckled Hen Inn was beautiful!
