25 Days of Christmas: Day 16 - Christmas in the Country

This past weekend Michael and I sneaked away for a little getaway with just the two of us. We wanted to take a little trip before I have to go back to work in January. I was nervous to leave Sofia since she's so little, but I'm so glad we did. It was wonderful to relax for a couple of days and Sofia did just great. We went to our favorite spot, Grand Geneva Resort. We were there this past February but only stayed one night. It was really nice to stay for two nights this time.

Our beautiful room

So relaxing!

The resort was all decked out for the holidays and it was absolutely beautiful! My favorite was the giant tree in the lobby, it was gorgeous! They also run a gingerbread house decorating contest each year and you can vote for your favorite. There were so many cool ones, it was hard to choose!

Our first day we relaxed in the hot tub and pool, took naps and went out to dinner. When we came back to the resort after dinner, we got to check out their light display. It was beautiful! I couldn't get too many pictures because we had people behind us and couldn't stop.

Our second day we spent most of the day downtown shopping. It was actually a nice day to walk around for December in Wisconsin. It was foggy but in the mid-40's.

We went to our favorite place for dinner that night, Geneva Chophouse, which is in the resort. We had an incredible dinner.

We both started with a chopped salad

Michael had a strip steak

I had Chilean sea bass

And we split a trio of sides

We had to get a picture in front of that beautiful tree!

It was such a nice treat to get some time with just Michael and I for a couple of days. We definitely missed our babies though and we picked them up bright and early on Sunday.

Love these two!
