We had to cut the festivities a little short on Sunday because my dad was in an accident while training one of his horses and I rushed to go spend time with him in the hospital in St. George.
On Jack's actual birthday he slept in, opened gifts (including a new road bike!) played with the girls, and we had lunch at the Trellis Cafe. They have the most amazing chocolate mousse cake. At 4 his sister, Amanda, came to watch our girls and we headed up to Salt Lake to stay the night. We went shopping at City Creek, ate at our favorite SLC restaurant, Market Street Grill, and had fun walking through the Grand and Little America hotels (we stayed at the Little America this time). The next morning we had breakfast at Market Street, Jack loves their crab and avocado omelette! We walked around the farmer's market in the park and got Jack the fruit tart he loves from Carlucci's and then when he thought it was time to head home I surprised him with the news that I had arranged for our sweet neighbor girl to come watch the girls when Amanda had to go to work, so we were able to extend our outing a few hours longer. We went and saw a movie.
It was such an amazing couple of weekends for such an amazing guy. Jack is the best person I know, so generous and always thinking of others. He loves his family so much and is a wonderful dad and husband. He's funny, smart, fun, and a million other great traits that make me feel so lucky to have landed him.
