Gratefully, *pt* and were able to get away for a weekend in the busy month of November for what we called our “baby-cation”.
It was our last (mini)-vacation before our little “Squirt” arrives. We decided to look for a place to go within a 2-hour radius to save a bit of money by being able to drive and to leave right after *pt* was done with work on Friday afternoon.
We ended up in Ballston Spa, NY and stayed at the Medberry Inn and Spa.
Ballston Spa is a quaint, simple, little town that was perfect for a relaxing weekend away.
The weather was crisp and cold but clear for the time we were there. We took a few walks around the town and stopped in some of the unique stores. There were a few antique and collectible shops as well as small hometown gift stores and restaurants. We really enjoyed our weekend! The food we had was good (especially the fried ice cream–made with Corn Flakes) and we had a wonderfully relaxing couples massage. One of the best I’ve had! The therapist was so sweet, she said I seemed so comfortable that she let me borrow the pillows that I was cuddling with during my prenatal massage for that night! You know pregnant women and their pillows.
We are very blessed to have been able to take some time away just the two of us before we become a family of three in a few weeks.
