5 years!

I know this post is a few days late, but the mouse to our computer stopped working and as it is impossible to do ANYTHING on your computer without a mouse I haven’t been able to blog until now. The old mouse was 5 years old and I know that because Mark and I bought this computer right after we got married and last weekend we celebrated our 5-year anniversary!
To celebrate we left the girls with Mark’s parents and took off to Park City. We stayed at this nice bed and breakfast called the Washington School Inn. We were the only guests there Friday and the inn-keeper went home for the night, so we had the entire building to ourselves. It was nice but a little bit creepy. Luckily our bed was ultra-comfy with a feather bed and super soft sheets . . . I slept really well and the best part was that I didn’t have to worry about waking up in the night to a crying child :)
We spent Saturday shopping at the outlet stores – Mark’s anniversary gift to me. My gift to him was a cast iron pan. Mark loves anything that says, “We live in the 1800's.” He loved it so much that he used it while making Mother’s Day breakfast for me!
Sausage and eggs along with maple walnut french toast from the bed and breakfast’s website. It was super good but way too filling. I only managed to eat one slice before calling it quits. But don’t worry, it made for great left overs! And as if breakfast wasn’t enough, Mark ordered a double jogging stroller for me so I can take the girls out walking. It’s still in transit but should be here Tuesday . . . can’t wait!
Oh and here is a picture of me and my sweet girls on Mother's Day (as if you didn’t know who we are!). I sure love being a mother!

Congratulations on reaching five years. I'll have to try the stuffed french toast, I loved that stuff when I worked at the VI.

What a fun celebration! And yummy mother's day breakfast too! Now we need to head out around town with our double joggers and take up the whole street, he he. I always get plenty of fun looks when I head out with my crew.

You'll have to tell me how the cast iron works. We have wanted to get cast iron, but read that they break cook top ranges because they get so hot!

Fun post!

5 Years! Congrats! I can't believe how fast time is going! I love that kind of breakfast! Looks like you had a great time! I also want to get one of those double strollers that hook onto a bike...so much easier to cart 2 kids around!

Happy Five Years! I love B&Bs! They're so much more romantic than hotels - I say that a lot, it's true though.
