So Saturday we dropped the kids off at our friends so we could spend the weekend together without the kids to celebrate our anniversary. We planed on just staying in town due to a lack of money. So we were going to go out to eat, catch a matinee, and then make it up as we went along.
Our first stop was Infusions, a coffee shop downtown, this is us swinging in their hanging chair. Then we went over to Chipotle for some lunch. After we ate John ask to see the list of movie times I had wrote down, so I dug it out and began to go over it with him. Then he said "oh wait I made a list too" and put a piece of paper over my list. I looked at it and it was a map to Georgetown. He told me we were heading home to pack a few things and then we were off to a bed and breakfast. I was totally surprised.
This is the bed and breakfast, It's called the American River Inn. It had 15 rooms all decorated differently. They were all really beautiful and old fashioned.
This was the Christmas tree. The owner was Betty, she said every year a family comes up the day after thanksgiving and decorates the tree for them. They have been doing it ever since their kids were little, now they are all grown up but they all still come. What a fun tradition. We had a cozy fire place in our room and a whole floor to ourselves, there was only one other couple staying in the inn that night.

Abe Lincoln showed up too, he was kind enough to pose for this picture. The town was really small, only one street. There was 3 antique shops and we spent quite awhile looking through them. The local Luthran church had a big cragt fair going on too. We had a super time. John gave me a beautiful gift of a framed photo from our wedding. I can not tell you enough what a kind, wonderful man he is.

That Abe Lincoln reminds me of the one they have at Disneyland, he always creeped me out a bit. (=
