John's Birthday Weekend

John is the hardest person to get gifts for because he doesn't like "things". He would much rather eat a good meal, read a book, and have uninterrupted video game time than receive presents. Due to this lack of material enthusiasm, I booked a two night stay at the Grand America for his birthday.  We were both able to relax, eat way too much food, and lounge by the pool.  Basically we indulged in all of John's favorite things, minus the video games ;)

The cake from La Bonne Vie that was waiting in our room.




Mirror selfies.

The view from our balcony.

Donut breakfast from Banbury Cross. We also got to experience the famous Sunday Brunch at the Grand before we checked out. Honestly, I was a little overwhelmed by all the choices there, but tried to get one of every dessert.

We took an excursion to the The Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve and had the place to ourselves. It was very sunny and hot.

This structure reminds me of something out of A Series of Unfortunate Events.



We had a nice dinner at Valter's Osteria, but forgot to take a picture so I had John take one in the hotel lobby to remember that we got fancied up for the night.
