Friday Britney and I celebrated 10 years of being married! Neither of us feels old enough to have been married that long, but when we look back, neither of us can really remember life before being married (or before kids for that matter).
Britney's aunt and uncle were nice enough to watch the kids overnight for us and we headed off to Minneapolis for a night away. Of course, my main objective for the weekend was a trip to Ikea :) Britney was a great sport and shopped with me for many hours. We also hit the Mall of America for some souvenirs for the kids and took a quick trip to the ghetto...to find a free ATM.
Once back to the safety of suburbia and a free ATM at Target, we headed back downtown to find our hotel. We stayed at an amazing place - probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. The Minneapolis Grand is beautiful. It's an old hotel that's been re-done. But, the room had a beautiful bed, terry cloth bathrobes and the biggest hotel bathroom I've ever seen. There were even Godiva chocolates on our pillows after we got back from dinner. It was such a nice treat to have a real haven to go to and just celebrate being together.
Saturday we just walked around downtown for awhile and then headed home. It was a beautiful day - 65 in the Cities! - and we actually enjoyed riding with the sunroof open and no kids yelling that it was too windy or too cold :) What a perfect ending to a perfect weekend :) Britney - thanks for a great treat! I love you.
