The Best Vacation I Never Took

I'm reading: The Best Vacation I Never TookTweet this!

It's been quiet around here recently, both on the blog and at home. My in-laws took the boys on vacation, leaving DH and I home alone. As it turned out, DH finished a fabulous contract position on the 21st and starts what promises to be an equally wonderful permanent position at a new company after the start of the year. Which means we had a week to play!

And play we did.

We went to the Art Institute of Chicago, The Shedd Aquarium, The Hellenic Museum, lunch in Greek Town, a first-run movie in a theater, installed a closet system in our upstairs hall closet, spent a few trippy, but relaxing, hours at King Spa (seriously, click that link), took our first (and likely last) trip to a local casino, and hosted an adults-only party for which we made too many homemade goodies. We also each provided hours of practice for our Science Olympiad teams, cleaned the house (mostly) and bought a couch.

It was a great week with hubs, but I'm looking forward to seeing the kids (mostly). Anyone want to place a bet as to how long they are home before the whining and fighting begins?
