Tuesdays Unwrapped

It's time for Tuesdays Unwrapped again!

Want to unwrap a Tuesday of your own? Then head over to chatting at the sky to find out how.

The goal of this is to tell a story or post a photo documenting your messy, lovely, unexpected gifts of the small and ordinary nature and to unwrap your daily gift :) Beautiful right?

This past weekend the husband and I got a chance to do something big. Something HUGE. Something we rarely ever get to do. We had a 100% child free day!

I love my boys to pieces, but sometimes I just need a day to recoup and be the person that I was before having children took over every single fiber of my being. So what did you suppose we did while the boys were spending a fun filled day with their Grandma? We went to an amusement park to act like children ourselves!

For the past 6+ years every single time we've gone to an amusement park we have had to spend the entire day in kiddie land or chasing our kids off of the people in the costumes that walk around, or drying eyes full of tears because someone wasn't tall enough to ride something. In short going to an amusement park with the boys, while fun, was a lot like work.

But this time it was an adults only day and we were able to spend the whole day riding rides and frolicking through the park like we were teenagers in love.

I love the Yo Yo! On the very rare occasion we get any time to ourselves, we often find ourselves at this gaming place called Main Event. It's the one time I get to play the games that I want...I can play Dance Dance Revolution without worrying about stepping on little hands.
