Röbert and I have been talking a lot about how to spend more time together as a couple. He suggested we spend some time in the mountains together yesterday and then he and I could go shopping together another day. That sounded like a great idea. We dropped the kids off at Röb’s mom’s house on Saturday night after the baseball game, and we got up early yesterday morning and headed up to the mountains. He had bought me some cute-ish hiking boots when he got the baseball stuff for Merlin and I had some adorable hiking short-shorts and a sporty fitted t-shirt, so I would look the part of an outdoorsy gal!
Cari has been through a divorce and she gave me excellent advice about acting as if I like the stuff Röbert likes. She told me to pretend that I was hiking on a treadmill at the gym, and I did. It was mostly not terrible. And of course it was divine to have some time alone with the hub.
He packed a cute lil’ picnic for us of some sandwiches (LOL! Bread!) but he also had grapes and the darling man had a split of champagne in there for me too! He knows and loves his wife.
I was tired after lunch but Röbert brought me to a beautiful waterfall, which was very romantic. It was too cold to swim, but we dangled our feet in. The hike down was much easier and I pretended I was doing cross-fit the whole time.
Grandmama loved having her littles with her for the day, so it was a win for everyone!
I have to look up hikers on the internet later and figure out if I might end up with some weird looking muscles if I do this too often.
