I promised you an update!

Well, if you have been reading along, you will know that hubby and I headed off to a bed and breakfast this weekend. We have been back for several days but my daughters have been so consumed by playing on webkinz world that I have had limited access to the computer. GRRRRR.....

The house we stayed in, Another Second Penny Inn, was built in 1780. The house still has some of the original wood and beaming. We had a beautiful room with a fireplace and a whirlpool tub. One thing I really miss in our new home is not having a fireplace, so we really enjoyed being able to have a fire. It was also nice because Sunday night was the coldest night of the winter so far, so the fire made our room nice and cozy.

The Innkeepers - Sandra and Jim- who are just FABULOUS! - made snacks for us and stocked our room with water, cocoa, coffee, and anything else we may want! Sandra made these sinfully delicious cookies out of five ingredients ( flour, coconut, brown sugar, butter, and oats) They are the most delicious cookies and she was kind enough to give me the recipe. I am so excited about that! They also cooked an absolutely fabulous breakfast that we were served in the house's formal dining room. Our breakfast consisted of: lemon coconut muffins, grapefruit and citrus compote, egg and crab scramble, fresh juice, fresh coffee and home made sorbet. It was to die for!

Robbie and I loved the whirlpool tub but it was really quite the experience. The bubbles were - let's just say - vigorous. It was nice to soak in the tub together - with the bubbles off.... We had a wonderful weekend and it was just nice to be able to reconnect and spend some couple time without our children. I promised you all some more pictures of the room, so here they are. Most are of the bathroom because it was just so HUGE! ( Did I mention the SPA robes? Yeah, LOVED that!)

If you are ever in this area and looking for a place to stay, Another Second Penny really was a wonderful experience!

ahhhhhhh.... looks soooo cozy and romantic. What a fantastic thing to do together. The connecting part is so hard when you have little ones.
Defionately something i miss not having someone around that could watch our little kidlets for a night so we could escape.
I wouldn't have come out of the tub. It looks so luxurious.

Ahhh... Webkinz World. I know them, Horatio. :)

I think I'd still be in that tub; you are awe-inspiring for having the courage to leave it! I am so glad you and Robert had a nice break together; you needed it!

Glad to hear you all had a great time! :) We actually have a fireplace here....have yet to use it, and soon it'll be too warm to do so (until colder weather is once again upon us), but I just like HAVING it! LOL (And I know I'm super late in commenting...I'm just now getting around to catching up from my offline days!)
