Last Christmas, our little family escaped for an overnight getaway that turned out to be one of the best weekends we’ve ever had together. We took Kate to Busch Gardens Christmastown and stayed in an adorable villa just outside of Williamsburg.
The weekend was spent swimming in the heated pool, snuggling by the fireplace in our villa, trying hot chocolate for the first time, sitting on Santa’s lap, seeing a bazillion gorgeous Christmas lights at Busch Gardens, taking home one of her favorite stuffies ever, Icicle (the polar bear you see in these pictures) and pancakes in Colonial Williamsburg.
Mike and I stood in the villa after Kate had gone to bed and I remember so clearly…he hugged me and said “doesn’t this feel so good? Man, I love “off treatment.”
We decided this little weekend before Christmas getaway was going to be our new Rhoades family tradition. It was a perfectly brilliant weekend. I loved every second of it.
I loved every single second of being your mommy, Kate.
