5 Years of Wedded Bliss

On Dec. 30th Cory & I celebrated our 5 yr anniversary.  In celebration of this 5 yr milestone we decided to get away to a Bed & Breakfast.  We had a budget of $200 so we had to shop around for rooms that were not budget busters, but we found the PERFECT place The Providence Inn in Logan, Ut. We were really excited for our mini trip, however on the day before we left a storm rolled in to Ut so we worried that we wouldn't be able to make the 1 1/2hr trip north.  We started our trip by going to get chains for the car, which turned out luckily to be unnecessary, but you can see the weather was a bit sketchy looking as we traveled up.
Before we checked in we stopped in at th Logan Temple to do some sealings, but we forgot to take pics so we went back the next day for some pics.  We then checked in to the B&B but then were out again because we had dinner reservations at Hamiltons, a delicious Steak House in Logan.  Afterwards  Cory surprised me, by having tickets to go see the tourist, a movie I had been really wanting to see.
After the movie we finally got to enjoy our cozy cute room.  The next morning we went down to the parlor were we were had the place to ourselves and enjoyed a really delicious breakfast.
After breakfast we got to relax some more before heading out to the FREEZING cold day.  We had planned to take a sleigh ride among the elk, but Cory & I were to afraid to freeze our cans off (the high was 18 degrees) so we chose to head straight home instead.  I know, I know we are old fuddy duddies.
On the way out we took some pictures of the Providence Inn (Old Rock Church), but only got a couple before the battery in our camera died. This B&B is an old church and I really can't say enough great stuff about it.  We were not the only ones there, but we sure felt like it.  It was cozy, beautiful and at night they had free movies you could check out & warm complimentary cookies for all of the guest.
Here is the Logan Temple the day after we visited it and they were the last photos we were able to get before our camera died, which was took bad because the drive home really was BEAUTIFUL!!!  It was sunny and the snow on the mountains through the canyons was really picturesque.

Everything really was perfect & we enjoyed a nice time relaxing overnight for the first time ever away from the kiddos (thanks Madsen family for watching our wee ones) & since we normally don't anything extravagant for our anniversaries we plan are planning now to save up & celebrate our next milestone of 10 years on a cruise!
