Mister Dad and I were able to get away for one night to celebrate our anniversary. It was really nice. Mark and Bobbi were so nice to watch our kids for us. We wanted to do something really spectacular for our 10th anniversary but it just wasn't going to work out, so we had our one little night away instead. We stayed at the Anniversary Inn which is where we stayed on our wedding night. For those of you not familiar with the Anniversary Inn, it is a bed and breakfast that is specifically designed to be a romantic get-away for couples. Lots of newlyweds stay there just like we did. All the rooms have themes, like Treasure Island, Bridal Veil Falls, Sultan's Palace, Jungle Safari, Italian Gondola, etc. Some of them look pretty cheesy in the pictures on the website, but in person they're quite nice. Each of the rooms have a jetted tub and there is chilled sparkling cider and cheesecake in the room when you arrive. It was fun and romantic. We had to laugh, though, at the little placard set on the bed. It read, "Before settling in, PLEASE TURN DOWN THE COMFORTER. Thank you." I think "settling in" is my new favorite phrase.
