Rich's Surprise for Me

Friday afternoon Rich and I headed up to Midway to "The Homestead" for our anniversary. Rich made all the arrangements, he is a great husband!! We went swimming in the crater. I have seen it on the Internet and we have both wanted to go try it out, it was really fun.
You can walk up the stairs to the top of the crater and they have the opening fenced in but you can look down and see the water. So this is the view from the top
They make everyone wear life preservers (which I am not a huge fan of but whatever...I like to be able to just tread water without the hassle of the thing up around your neck but I guess safety first right Melissa)!! It was really hot in there so I sat on a water noodle for a while so my arms were out of the water to cool off.
I took this picture inside the crater looking up. It isn't very big in there and there were 8 people doing scuba certification so it was a little crowded but we had a good time.
Isn't he funny. Rich never really learned how to swim and he just doggy paddles and I always give him a hard time about it but I am just teasing him. He was really loving the hot water and didn't ever want to get out!!
We watched the Kite Runner and sat in the hot tub. We slept in until 11am and only woke up because Alexa called. It was great being able to relax and get away for a little bit. We laid out for a few hours and then I took Rich to Texas Roadhouse for a late lunch. It was his first time. We ran a few errands and then went home.
Thanks so much McKell and Joseph for watching the kids while we were gone!!

Sounds like a good time. What a great husband to surprise you with a little get away! Brett would never think to do that. I wish he would read the blogs and get a few little hints from my brothers. Hey, is Texas Roadhouse open for lunch? I tried taking Brett there for lunch the other day and they were closed but Stephanie insisted that she has eatin then for lunch.
