Glad that you had a wonderful time. For many years, my husband and I were fortunate to have my parents spend a week each year in April watching first our daughter, and then, both of our kids, and basically push us out the door on vacation. My mom's philosophy is that partners need time together, without the kids, to make sure their marriage is strong for the kids. Last year (sadly), we weren't able to take advantage of it because of work reasons, and this year may fall by the wayside, too. But we did manage to pull off three nights over winter break when we were visiting my parents in Florida, and it was lovely! I agree that it's what you do in-between that matters every day, but these moments out of the hustle and bustle of our daily lives have helped keep our relationship fresh.
