Anniversary Weekend- Part I

The big mystery surprise for this weekend is out of the bag! Turns out we didn't have to travel very far at all to get to our destination.
Anyone starting to recognize it?
How about now? OK, one more final hint.
Yup, that's right! 
We went to Chateau Elan Winery and Resort!! 

Since there is a lot to post about, I'm going to break them up. Today I will show you some of the grounds and decor. When we arrived we got our welcome letter and I got to see all the planning that David put into our weekend.
Here is the letter. He had booked the culinary package, doesn't he know me so well, its all about the food. It made our experience more like the all-inclusive feel, but the tips and alcohol weren't included. They have 5-7 restaurants (depending if you want to count the lounges). We tried 4.

Our room was incredible. As you can see above, he opted for the suite upgrade. I can't argue with that, it was beautiful! The size of an apartment.
David went the extra mile and brought some finishing touches to make it even more special.  He brought the roses, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, etc... Didn't he do a great job! We also wrote each other hand-written notes (paper is the first anniversary gift). I have to give him even more credit because he wrote his before and I waited till we got there. Mine did have Chateau Elan stationery and envelope though, so we'll always remember where we went.

Oh, and did I mention, we rode in style to the resort!
He went out of the way and bought us a Mercedes, Just kidding! His brother, Darrin let us borrow his for the weekend! Thanks Darrin and Stacey!
Here's a close up of the car for all you car lovers out there. It's nice enough to be alone in its own picture. I also wanted to give Erin R a shout out! Thanks so much for watching all of our crazy animals!! You are the best and it's great to have a friend we can count on to stay at our house and take care of our babies. Stay tuned for activities and dining at Chateau Elan! Pin It
