Get-Away

Ammon and I recently celebrated our 11th anniversary! Hard to believe, but it’s true! We decided that even if we don’t do something big each year, that we at least need to get away over the weekend just to spend some time to be a couple and not parents.

This year, we returned to our honeymoon destination, which also happens to be the next town to ours…Ouray. We treated ourselves to massages, checked into our adorable honeymoon bed and breakfast, The China Clipper Inn and started to relax. First, dinner at a great local Mexican restaurant. Then a stop to our favorite Chocolate Shop. Relaxing in the hot tub, eating ourselves silly and watching our favorite shows with no interruptions. Heaven.

All dressed up for dinner

Saturday, we awoke (late) to my favorite breakfast…Eggs Benedict and oven roasted asparagus! Yum!!! After breakfast, we took a nap! Are we lazy or what?! Then we took a ride on Ammon’s motorcycle to Silverton, a small mining town and did a little shopping. Then back home. It’s amazing how a day and half can seem like a week when there are no kids around 😉

My hot biker husband! =)

View on the drive….too bad I don’t have a zoom on my iphone. These mountains look far away, but they seemed like they were right beside us!
