Surprise!

Hubby and I just got back from our "surprise vacay" today! (I planned it, he knew we were going somewhere, but not where). Pfew, we did a lot of stuff in four days. First thing to know is that hubby had no clue where we were going, so he had to pack for the mystery trip on only my vague guidelines.
I was very sneaky and had hubby convinced that we were going somewhere in our hometown of the Twin Cities. At this point, he had finally realized we were heading OUT OF TOWN, and it was looking like we were Wisconsin-bound.
Surprise! We headed to The Grand Geneva, a resort on Lake Geneva. While we were there, we basically did a lot of chilling. Hubby and I got a couple's massage and enjoyed walking around the lake. We had the chance to check out a few local dining spots.
Most importantly, we had some REALLY GOOD ice cream. I am particular about my ice cream, and I can say without hesitation that this was the GOOD STUFF. Mmmmmm... peach ice cream and black cherry ice cream, two of my favs.
There were more surprises, though. On day number three, I asked hubby if he wanted to go to Chicago for the day. This is a special place for us. One of our first trips together was to Chicago, and we have great memories of this excellent Spanish restaurant, Cafe Iberico. We always talk about going back there, but the opportunity hasn't presented itself yet. So we just got up, checked out, and left for Chicago. We had an amazing lunch at Cafe Iberico, but that wasn't the only thing in store for that day...
...One of hubby's fav teams to cheer on is the Cubs. He hails from Madison (we now live in MN) but has never had the chance to actually see the Cubbies play at Wrigley Field. Well... there just happened to be a home game that night, and I had tickets :-). So we got to watch them win 4-2.

What a fabulous idea!! We'd have to drive for hours just to get to another place in Texas, but I bet I could figure something out. And ice cream--yum! Glad you guys had such a blast. What a sweet wife you are!

What a fantastic idea! I wonder if I can kidnap my husband, some time . . . probably not. He has a really bizarre schedule..
