Valentine's 2009

For Valentines this year, we decided to forego the typical flowers, chocolate, and nice dinner. Instead we decided to shake things up a bit. We went to a marriage conference . . . yes, a marriage conference! Before you think anything else, let us just say, it was fantastic. Family Life puts on a weekend long conference called A Weekend to Remember. Boy was it memorable. It was held at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.

Originally we had planned not to stay in Grapevine, but late Thursday night (like 10:00 late) we made the random, last-minute decision to stay in Grapevine! We first called the Gaylord hoping for a miracle that there woud be one open room. Of course, it was booked, full to the brim. We followed this action with calling six other hotels around the area and nothing, not one open room. We were prepared to shell out a bit of $$ given the last minute need for a two night room stay. Finally, we got ahold of Holiday Inn Express enough room for a two night stay for two! We were happy because it was a stone's throw away from the conference.

The conference covered subjects such as follows:
- Spiritual Oneness
- Conflict
- Intimacy and Romance (sizzle, sizzle)
- and more . . .

It was a fantastic weekend! Here are a few shots from the weekend:
