Fourteen Photos

Jon called it a staycation but I disagree. I call it a get-away, even if it was in our own backyard. Whatever you want to call it, it was a fabulous way to celebrate 14 incredible years!

Dinner at a historic steakhouse, relaxation in front of the crackling fire

Soft down pillow that could swallow you whole and the sound of the crashing falls outside the window.

Waking to the bright blue sky

Four courses for breakfast (with mini Tabasco bottles) atop the falls

Driving the scenic route

A bit of shopping, but not too much. That's really not our thing.

A walk in the sunshine with my sweetheart,
A chat on a bench underneath a famous landmark,

Finished off with five courses and three and half hours of amazing dinner entertainment.
Does it get better than this?
(Thanks, Mom and Dad for watching the kids)

Happy Anniversary you guys! Cool Guy definitely has some awesome moves. A huge congrats to Caleb for making honor roll. That's fantastic! I would be interested in seeing a side-by-side of Alyssa with other "shorties" her age. She's a darling little girl that's for sure!

Sara said...

Wow, You guys really know how to celebrate! That place you stayed looks amazing! Do you book and plan these get-aways or does Jon? Just wondering:)

Chad said...

Looks awesome! Congratulations on 14 great years!!

Amy Jones said...

Fourteen?!!!! Holy cow.

Where is that beautiful hotel? I need to know. :)

Happy anniversary!

Sara--we each did parts of the planning. I took care of the babysitting, we did the hotel together and Jon surprised me with the dinner show tickets. I'd definitely call it a joint effort. :)

Amy--the hotel is called Salish Lodge and is located in Snoqualmie, just outside of Seattle. I highly recommend it! :)
