We woke up bright and early on Saturday and headed to our first stop...The Columbus Temple. In order to make it on time, we need about 3 hours to get there. Tim studied up a storm on the way there while I drove, trying to stay awake listening to a book. We barely made it...!
After a wonderful temple session, we booked it over to a movie theater that I found about 2 miles from the Temple to see the long- awaited-viewing of The Hunger Games. We were not disappointed with this book turned into a movie!!! After way too much dollar store candy and movie theater popcorn, we headed back to Cleveland.
Before arriving home though, we stopped and stuffed our faces at The Olive Garden (thanks mom and dad!!!). We had such a good time there, and our waiter probably thought we were in high school with all the laughing going on at our table. Tim tried soooo hard to get me to eat the fried Calamari (sp? aka squid), but I wouldn't budge. Never in a million years.
Stop number 2 on the way back to the Cleve was the Lodi Outlet Malls. It was a little nippy outside, so we didn't stay too long, but loved how delightful the place was. The outlets have a cute train that gives rides around all the stores, and we immediately knew a certain little boy would flip out if he could get a choo-choo-train ride :) That made me miss Max even more (even though we had only been gone from him less than 20 hours...I had to promise Tim to stop worrying about him being any trouble for our friends...)
It ended up being a perfect day, despite the fact that we knew heart-attacks were in store for what our diets consisted of that day... We are still alive right now, phew!
I love Tim so much, and can't believe it has been 3 years since we got hitched. He makes me be better everyday, and is SO patient with my short-comings, hormones, falling asleep in every movie or tv show we watch, days I don't make it to the shower, mac and cheese with hot dog dinners for the 3rd-night-in-a-row-weeks, complaints, worries, fears, crying sessions, etc... He makes me so happy and I can't imagine where I'd be if I wasn't lucky enough to have met him. I love you Tim!
