Who says there's nothing exciting going on?

Ok folks, this is Aaron posting. FYI in case you don't figure that out by what I say here...

Katie and I decided awhile ago that we wanted to take one last vacation with just the two of us before we're officially parents. We started thinking recently about the last time we've had a vacation with JUST the two of us and realized it's been almost 5 years. We've gone on a lot of trips, but have always gone either with family and/or friends or have gone somewhere to visit people we know.

I was able to convince Katie to let me arrange the vacation (which is fun because Katie rarely volunteers for surprises). All she knows is that we're going somewhere warm between now and May. I took care of her time off from work (actually - I kind of just called and said "I've got airfare booked for these dates - Katie won't be there." Hopefully she doesn't take to much flack for that).

Anyhow, on to the main reason for this post: I told Katie I'd give her a heads up about a week before we leave. I've been debating a fun way to tell her. A card? To sentimental. A note on the bathroom mirror? To predictable. Just tell her outright face to face? To anti-climactic. Then I thought - how about a blog post? Not the most perfect idea in the world, but definitely more original than the other ideas I've come up with. So....

Katie - finish up your "summer clothes" shopping you've been trying to do the past week or so and get your bags packed. We're flying out of Duluth next Thursday @ 7:00am (March 6th). I'll tell you where when we get to the airport...unless you'll agree to not look at your boarding pass, put a blindfold on and wear ear plugs. Then I'll just let you see where we are when we get off the plane. Somehow, I doubt you'll agree to that part of this.

Attn: people who know where we're going. PLEASE don't say a word to Katie about our destination (or else I'll have to create a post embarrassing you for spilling the beans! ;)

And to make this post a bit more exciting....a picture....

Now I can say, love the picture, Aaron. I especially like the look on the dog's face - one of uncertainty, perhaps? And, I hope you guys have a wonderful trip! It should be a great time to just enjoy life and hang out together. Enjoy! Love, Mom P.

So what happens if she doesn't check your blog for several days and thus doesn't notice your announcement? haha, Enjoy your trip.
