10th Anniversary Trip July 2010

Rick and I were blessed to take a trip for our 10th anniversary. We were able to get away for three days and two nights at the StoneBow Inn in Grantsville, Maryland (20 minutes from Deep Creek Lake). We stayed there for our honeymoon, but it was under different ownership and a different name - The Elliot House.

Not a lot had changed in the past ten years, but under new ownership the inn had improved. One of the biggest improvements was the breakfast. Julyen made incredible food and even had a cookbook of some of his recipes.

We were able to go into the small town by Deep Creek Lake for the day, peruse an antique shop and sample some local BBQ which was phenomenal. Rick even got a hair cut.

We also traveled to another near by town for an anniversary dinner by the Youghiogheny River.

It was just so nice to be able to stroll through each day without rushing back to take care of the kiddos or worry about anything for a few days. Thanks to Janie and Steve, Kari and Noah were very well taken care of while we were on our trip.

I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
