I’m back after a few fun-filled days! 😀
It was our anniversary on Friday and then we attended our nephew’s wedding – a very special celebration that lasted most of the weekend!
Our whole extended family was in attendance and we all stayed at a hotel near the festivities. It was delightful to see grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends – all at the same time, and for a few days instead of just an afternoon.
The bride and groom recommended the hotel, which was beautifully set up for a comfortable stay. It was quite a treat for us and the fact that it was also our anniversary weekend made it seem as if we were celebrating that too!
How about a tour of the place? 🙂
And a little corner of the powder room . . .
We had a fully equipped kitchen.
The dining area was bright and cheery!
I’ll tell you more about the wonderful wedding later in the week, but for now I thought you’d like to hear about our anniversary.
We traveled to the above hotel on Friday afternoon in anticipation of the wedding which was to take place on the following day. We checked-in, dropped our bags in the room, oohed and aahed about how lovely and spacious it was, and then went out for our anniversary dinner. After that, we took a peek in a nearby mall to see if we could buy a new wedding album!
It turns out that after 38 years, a wedding album falls apart! Our wedding pix are still in fine shape – but the album is disintegrating. We found a new one at a Hallmark store and I can’t wait to put our old photos into it!
So, with a delicious meal under our belts and a new album purchased, we returned to the hotel to begin a memorable weekend.
To be continued . . .
That is nice. Looks like a little apartment. Hope the rest went great as well.
Congratulations on the new album! It sounds like you had a wonderful time!
NICE place!! Like a vacation condo. I love reading about your adventures. Glad you had a great time. Have fun walking down memory lane as you put your old pictures into your new photo album.
Hi Sweet Lady Crystal!
Your weekend sounded wonderful! The hotel was just beautiful! I can’t wait to hear more about it…maybe see more pics too!
We’re almost married 28 years, and my wedding album is tucked away in some dark corner of the boiler room, in it’s original box no less. It’s nice to know that your album got more wear and tear than ours! At least you guys have been enjoying looking back at your wedding pictures. I really don’t like too many of mine! (that’s why the book is where it is!) Have fun putting together your new album!
Congrats! There is nothing better than a weekend away, but a weekend away on your anniversary? SWEET! 🙂
Gosh, that was an apartment!! Nice to have the kitchen area and be able to keep a little snack in your room or a cool drink. We don’t go away like that much. I have a guilt trip if we go without the boys, but day trips without them are OK.
I’m so glad you had a nice time away and a nice anniversary celebration too.
