The Grove Park Inn

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Mark and I headed to one of our favorite places for his birthday weekend this year, The Grove Park Inn! Jack was set to have a fun, long weekend with my parents, and we were off to celebrate and relax! There was a bit of exterior remodeling going on, and even so, it’s beautiful! image

My super sweet husband had these beautiful flowers waiting for me in our room on his birthday weekend! He’s so thoughtful-just one of the many reasons why he’s the man of my dreams!imageFor his birthday dinner, we ate at the Sunset Terrace and had a beautiful view of the mountains. It was the perfect night for him to open the envelope with Baby Thomas’ gender ultrasound picture in it! He got to find out if he’s having a son or a daughter in December-and so did I! Yep! After weeks of talking about it, we made the decision to find out together, and we couldn’t be happier! We’ve told our families and are having some friends over for dinner on Wednesday to tell them! And then of course I’ll post it on the blog-can’t wait to share our wonderful news!imageWe enjoyed sleeping in-even though we woke up at seven and made ourselves go back to sleep!-a few relaxing days at the spa, great food, The Biltmore grounds, the beautiful views, and spending time together-just the two of us!imageLast night, we had reservations at Horizons, and it did not disappoint! It’s quite possibly the best place for dinner-I promise! Oh, and right after we took this picture, we watched a couple get engaged! You know mushy me-I got chills and teared up watching it all happen! We had a drink (or water) before dinner, and watched them enjoy their champagne from across the valley. It was so sweet!imageAnd even though the weekend was exactly what we wanted and the perfect way to celebrate Mark’s birthday, we missed our boy like crazy and are so happy to be back home with him! Thank you SO much, G&G, for taking such great care of Jack and for keeping us updated with all the pictures! Our long weekend wouldn’t have been nearly as relaxing if we didn’t know that Jack was in such good and loving hands! The welcome home note was the sweetest touch! We love you!!image
