Mommy and Daddy getaway!

So after getting the devestating news about baby boy and his spina bifida diagnosis, we planned and took a mommy and daddy getaway to get a break from it all.  The last week in August, Thomas and I took a trip to the Texas Hill country in Wimberly.  We stayed in a secluded log cabin that had amazing views for a couple of nights and then we drove to San Antonio and stayed at a nice hotel for a couple of nights.  We had a nice relaxing time doing whatever we wanted to do with no kids and just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  We thank Grandma and Grandpa Stansel for watching the kids all week while we got away.   We probably won't get to go on a vacation just the two of us for a long, long time after baby boy is born.  So we are glad we got this vacation in before his birth.  Here are some pictures of the log cabin in Wimberely.  I didn't take a lot of pictures of any thing else of our trip, but this log cabin was a beautiful location.

  1. Oh my gosh, my husband and I stayed at that exact place in March 2014. What a small world, and wasn't it heavenly and peaceful up on the top of the hill!?

  2. What is this place called? My husband and I have been looking for a nice place to stay in the hill country.

    1. Hill country premier lodging. Its the Ruby cabin. Here is the website for more information.

  3. What a beautiful place, I hope you had a relaxing time together

  4. This is funny...I am actually reading your blog seven months later from that very cabin. My daughter wanted to look at the guest book so we were flipping through it, and I recognized your names from when your family was in the news when the sextuplets were born - I followed your story for a little while then. It's thunderstorming up in the hill country right now and I can't sleep, so I have been reading the blog. Glad to see your family growing and doing well!
