Playing Catch Up!

We have been having so much fun with my new camera, we basically take it everywhere... like a child, but quiet. We had a little reunion with some of Grants old roommates and they were instantly sucked into Mario Kart Wii (you would be too if you came over).

Look at the JOY on their faces! So much happiness, I love it!

A couple weeks later SPRING HAPPENED!!! It was a glorious day when I didn't have to wear a winter coat outside. Grant and I celebrated by walking to a nearby park and playing Phase 10, all the while trying to figure our camera out.

We also watched the little girl, London that I used to nanny and her new sister Layla. We had so much fun, but watching 2 little ones is definitely more work than watching 1! I am amazed by you moms out there!!!

Look how happy we are to be reunited again! She still tells me I'm her favorite (and Grant of course).

These kids love stories!

And last, but definitely not least we celebrate Grant's 26th birthday! So if you know Grant you know he loves to surprise and is IMPOSSIBLE to surprise. Well ladies and gents I did it!!! :)
Thursday Grant came home from school and I said get in the car. So we drove up to Midway to this GORGEOUS Bed and Breakfast and Grant had no idea!

I didn't take this picture and it wasn't this green, but still so beautiful. I had been researching Bed and Breakfasts for a few months and I just couldn't find anything prettier and cozier than this one, Johnson Mill. We both highly recommend it. Comfy beds, fireplaces in each room, jetted bath tubs, beautiful views, and YUMMY breakfast!

Us on the deck of our room.

What is it about a fireplace that just makes everything cozier?

Friday we went to Alice and Wonderland and relaxed A LOT, then finished with dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory (I'm not a big Italian fan so Grant likes to pick those places for his birthday) and then had cake at our house.

Chocolate frosting of course, poor guy it's the only time he gets chocolate in this house! I'm so selfish.

Whew. Well needless to say we've been having a wonderful spring, now summer is just around the corner!

Happy Birthday Grant! What an amazingly relaxing birthday you had. I'm jealous of that bed and breakfast. I really hope I get to see you guys when I come out to Utah in just a couple of weeks. Love ya.
