Beau and I got to go away by ourselves this last weekend. My parents gave us a gift certificate to one of their favorite Bed and Breakfasts and spending money for the weekend! One of the best parts...they kept our kids! Ha!
We met Mom and Dad along the way and, after having lunch, went on our way to Jefferson, TX. A few hours later we pulled up to our B&B...
We settled in our room and started planning our itinerary. That night we had a wonderful dinner at an Italian restaurant, LaMancha. After dinner we went on a Ghost Tour walking around Jefferson. The town has a lot of ghost stories related to it and this tour walked all around the town (2 1/2 hours of walking). It was a fun tour, but I barely made it to the end. I was having contractions all night and spent a while lying in bed, trying to fall asleep and wondering which town close by has a hospital! Saturday we decided to take it a little easier.
We started off with a fabulous breakfast at our B&B (best food in town!) and headed out to walk through some of the MANY shops the town has. After sharing lunch we went on a boat tour down the Big Cypress Bayou learning more history about the town. On the way back to our room to rest we stopped for Beau to get a shake and me to get a slice of pie...yummo!!
After our afternoon snack I went back to the room to take a nap...vacation is exhausting!...and Beau walked around town some more. Then we headed out to dinner. Way out...we were just a mile or two from the Louisiana border as we sat out on the deck and enjoyed a wonderful dinner as the sun set over the bayou.
Sunday morning we had another great breakfast at the B&B and went to our last stop...another tour of a house in town with so much history...and of course, ghost stories!
A few hours later we were home with our babies!! Everyone else at our B&B had said they were away for the weekend to get away from their kids. We laughed that we bet we were the only ones that probably wished our kids were there with us! Ha! We had a wonderful time...it was a fantastic gift!!
If you're looking for a place to get away for the weekend we definitely recommend Jefferson!
