Life…ups and downs…

Beautiful sunset reminding me my auntie is always with me…

This past weekend was full of ups and downs.
The ups included the hubs and I getting away for a little trip to celebrate our anniversary.  Overall it was a good trip.  We had yummy food, I got to run with the ocean (gulf) next to me, and I even got a little bit of sleep.  The downside to the trip was that our hotel lost power for a few hours Friday evening, so it threw our plans off a bit.

The BEST burger place we have yet to eat at!  Cafe Michale Burger! We eat every time we are in Galveston 🙂

View from our room.  We were able to check in a little early, so we got one of the good rooms.

Chilling by the pool…we never actually got in cause there were about 20 kids in there while we sat and read for a bit.

We tried a new spot, called The Spot.  I had the most amazing salad 🙂

Morning run and some fun in the sun.

I am so thankful we were able to get away, even just for 24 hours.

The downs:
On my way to babysitting Sat afternoon my mom called to say her sister passed away.  It was (and still is) a huge shock that she is no longer here.  I miss her so much!!  I will cherish the memories and always hold her in my heart.
Thankful that these kiddos brought me many smiles and gave lots of hugs on Saturday!
