Our Romantic Getaway

My parents took all 7 grandkids this weekend
and left us to fend for ourselves. Luckily, I
have a pilot for a brother-in-law! Jason and I
hopped aboard Mark and Amy's plane and we
flew to Salt Lake City for a romantic getaway!
Jason and I did the typical tourist stuff in SLC while
Amy laid by the pool and Mark went to meetings.
Jason was like a kid in a candy shop! He loved
every second of did I!

We ate so much delicious food it was insane!
My favorite was The Melting Pot's chocolate
fondue! See how romantic we were!?!

Mark and Jason surprised us girls by upgrading
to the Breakfast In Bed Package at our fancy hotel.
At night they sprinkled our bed with roses and left
a bottle of bubble bath. For breakfast, they brought
us a lion's share of everything your heart desires!
Amy and I left our rooms in the morning to find that
both had taken the plastic laundry bag the
hotel provides
and filled it with our leftover fruit
and pastries. Are we
cheap or what!?!
No....just smart! Breakfast tomorrow!!!

While waiting for a table at one of the restaurants,
Mark decided to model for us! Isn't he hot!!!
No wonder Amy is pregnant with #5! :0)

Seriously, could she be any cuter?
I don't think so!!!
Our trip was filled with excitement, too:
*Mark getting pulled over
*Dodging lightning strikes in the plane
*Our 35 minute drive to a CLOSED hotel
*Our stinky Super8 last minute motel
*Our stomach issues
*Missing every movie (1 by two minutes)
*Enough meat to kill a lion
*Our police car escort from the airport

Jason and I just arrived home and we are
heading to California to meet up with the kids
in the morning. I feel so lonely without
them (no offense, Jason)! :0)
Thanks for a great time, Amy and Mark!

We had more fun! The kids were great and we loved every minute at the Grand Canyon and on the train. Wish we could do it once a year!
