It was really fun, and the decorations were great. Apparently Marcus was worried it was going to be really cheesy, but we loved it.
Anyway, they offered us a free upgrade because no one had reserved one of their nicer rooms. Usually we only hear about certain people with that kind of luck (cough**Misha**cough), but we were so excited. It was the original room that Marcus had wanted.
And there was a huge jetted tub with a waterfall. Pretty sweet.
The room was upstairs, so of course, we peeked in all the other rooms on our way up. It's a really neat place. And the breakfast is great. French toast, fruit, eggs, banana bread...
And the grounds were beautiful. I kept imagining it in spring. Maybe we'll have to go back one day.
On the way home, we stopped at Thanksgiving Point. I had really wanted to go to the Tulip Festival, so we decided to drive over to see all the amazing flowers. Sadly it was crazy cold, so we decided not to stay but walked around out front. Marcus said it was colder there than at the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix in the middle of winter :) But I got some great pictures.
This one is my favorite.
I really like this one too.
It was really beautiful. I bet it will be even more amazing once spring actually starts here. I swear if it snows again, I'm going to find that groundhog who promised us warmth and strangle him.
And now we're just cleaning and packing so Marcus can catch his flight to New York. Hopefully his busy summer goes by as fast as the past few weeks have. Luckily the first countdown is only until Memorial Day weekend. Then he'll be down to visit :)
