5 years

Last month, Ryan and I celebrated our five year anniversary, which is a feat in and of itself. But, when my mom told me she would come down and babysit Collin for a night, we took her up on it! One of our MOST MOST favorite places to go is the Melting Pot. Granted, we have been there before, but this was the first time "after Collin" and the relaxation and quiet, was seriously, perfect.
Ryan and I kept saying (as much as we truly love love Collin) how nice not to have a toddler next to you throwing food, saying Mommy! Daddy! It was truly a nice dinner.
And you CANNOT beat the flaming turtle for dessert!
We got a room in the Armstrong Mansion Bed and Breakfast in downtown Salt Lake. Not far, but so quiet and relaxing. We heard no one at all the entire time we were there....until the next morning for breakfast. We stayed in the May room.
And it was especially nice there because the week before this Collin had decided to become a vampire, staying up all night or not going to bed until midnight.
Our room was simple but elegant. Perfect for us. Just what we needed.
This place is so beautiful from the outside.
Our room was to the far left with the three little windows.
That next morning we woke up to a buffet breakfast, which was HEAVEN. They also had brochures about the Armstrongs. Man, they were cool people.
Then we went to the Bountiful Temple and did a session. Thanks for five wonderful years sweetie! Here's to many, many more!
