Today the twins and I will venture on our first trip minus Daddy. We are only going about 2-3 hours... but, the thought of not being able to stop to run into the restroom without two babies... or any other stop without a hassle is a little unnerving. I am use to running around town by myself. I guess I can alway stop at a Wally world or someplace big where I could roll the stroller in easily.

Why are we going? Every year my husband and about 40 other BOYS take an extended weekend golf trip. It is always the 3rd weekend in July. They have been doing this for about 16 years. 6 years ago I came into my now husband's life. Lo and Behold... my birthday is on July 20th... which generally falls on that very weekend.

I guess I'm just a kid. I want that day to be MY day! I want to be pampered and loved... not left for a few days. SO... if I stayed at home I would be sad to be home, alone, taking care of babies.

So, now I am going to stay with a very good friend of ours. I am excited because this is the first time she will meet the babies. I am also excited to see her son who is now 6! I haven't seen him since last year... during this same weekend. Both of our husbands are on the trip... So, we have hung out the last 3 years.

Yes, I guess I'm a little bitter. I try not to be... but, a girl gets to be a little selfish every once in awhile.

I do give Brett credit though... he does try to make things extra special before and after his trip. For example, last Saturday I spent the day at a spa getting a pedi and a massage. Then, today I got to sleep until 7:10 (huge since he woke with Bree at 5:30).

Plus, I know that trips like this are important. As much as we love each other, it is healthy to get out and do things with your friends. Sometimes guys just need to get away with the guys... where they can drink, scratch, swear, gamble... and whatever else guys need to get out of the system.

So, we girls will have a little weekend with our beautiful children... and the guys will have a weekend with the big boys. Good luck to us all! lol
