Babymoon has several meanings. The original meaning is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently-born baby.
More recently the term has come to be used to describe a vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby. Babymoons usually take place at a resort that offers appropriate services like prenatal massage.
I had originally wanted to go on a babymoon over Winter Break to Hawaii or California, but with the extensive travelling we did last summer, we (ie Rob) decided that wouldn't be the best use of our funds OR his time off. I still wanted to have one last formal "fling" before baby, and thanks to some kind friends who hooked us up with discounts, Rob and I were able to go on a mini-babymoon.
We started with a delicious dinner at the Classic Cup Cafe on the Plaza. The weather was absolutely glorious. Eating outside was reminiscent of our time in Europe last summer.
Then we headed to the Chateau Avalon at the Legends in KCK.
The staff was great, we asked for fresh coffee from the front desk, and they brought down a whole carafe just for us. They also heated up our raspberry peach cobbler from the Classic Cup on a real plate and brought down real silverware. :)
We slept until 9 this morning and had a wonderful breakfast, shown above. The Chateau serves Midnight Rendezvous DECAF coffee from the Roasterie. This was by far the best decaf coffee I have ever had. Rob enjoyed the Chateau Avalon signature blend created by the Roasterie. Yum!
Now we're home, very much relaxed, and ready to tackle some more of my to-do list. :)
Note: I haven't heard from my doctor about my lab results, and no news is good news. My swelling is less than it has been, which is super. blood pressure is still very much on target. Thanks for your prayers!
