Romantic Weekend in Boise!

Ah...Boise, Idaho...romance capitol of the United States.  Haha, not really, but since we were headed out there for a family trip to McCall, Idaho we decided to make a little getaway out of it.  My parents flew us out there for an adults only week long vacation in McCall.  The trip was Sunday through Sunday but, because of a prior committment with a church thing, we had to come back Friday so we decided to fly out to Boise the Friday before and spend a little weekend alone before all the family time.  THANKS TO MY WONDERFUL MOTHER IN LAW AND SISTER IN LAW FOR FLYING OUT AND WATCHING MY BOYS!!!  

Here we are at the airport saying goodbye, I got really teary eyed saying goodbye to Jackson.  I started to walk away then saw him crying so I had to go back and give him hugs again.  Melted my heart, he's so sweet.  However, Tegan had him laughing not five minutes later so he got over it.  And, might I mention, never mentioned me again the rest of the week!  Hahaha! 

We got in super late Friday night, it was so weird traveling without kids!  We watched a movie, read, talked, rested, etc on the plane.  Saturday we slept in, had breakfast, hung out at our hotel, then headed out for lunch and bowling... 

Saturday afternoon we headed over to see my Grandpa Barraclough.  My grandma died almost 9 years ago and I miss her so much.  My grandpa is 92 and is finally starting to lose it a little bit.  He is surprisingly healthy for a man his age but recently had to move to a care center because of a few minor problems. 
 I don't think he really knew who I was, and kept claiming he had a third wife (which he didn't) but she died and, "despite what they may tell you, I had nothing to do with her death."  Hahaha, I'm so glad I was able to spend time with him.  He was really lonely and didn't want us to leave.

After we left the care center we shopped for a couple hours then headed back to the hotel to relax and freshen up a bit.  That night we met my other grandparents for dinner!  They live in Oregon and Utah but were in town to pick up my sister's kids because they watched them the week we were in McCall.  They took us to a YUMMY steakhouse and we had so much fun with them.  My great aunt Ruby (my grandma's sister) came too... 
 Loved this full rainbow when we came outside...

Sunday we met up with my dear friend Tara for lunch (we forgot to take a picture, which is probably for the best...Tara and I have a track record of taking bad pictures!) then headed out to McCall for a week of fun on the lake!  It was a really nice relaxing weekend with Parker.  It was so nice to be just him and me for a few days.  We really bonded and enjoyed our time together.  I love you babe thanks for an amazing weekend!!

Next post of McCall coming soon!!!
