A Grand Getaway

Steve spoiled me rotten for our anniversary this year.
We decided to celebrate on Friday night because we both had work Thursday and Friday.
But on our actual anniversary, Steve sent me flowers at work!
I think the kids were just as excited about them as I was:)

Our real fun began Friday after work though.
We made reservations to stay at the Grand America in Salt Lake where we stayed on our honeymoon last year.
We ate dinner that night at The Roof at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. This was fun and nostalgic because we had our reception there. I loved looking out over the temple as we ate.

After we checked in to the Grand America, we learned we would be staying on the 23rd floor (the hotel has 24 floors total). So our favorite part of the hotel was the view of Salt Lake from up so high. Steve kept the huge window open most of the night so we could look out over Salt Lake, and he continued to enjoy the view the next morning.

To continue the nostalgia, on Saturday we took a walk around Temple Square and reminisced about our wedding day. It was fun to talk about memories and watch the other brides and grooms take pictures around the temple.

Overall, it was definitely a grand weekend!
