Romantic Getaway

And much needed!  We began the evening taking a short hike up Larch mountain where we saw 5 different mountain peaks.  It was incredible.  This is Mt. Hood.    018

some pretty flowers on the trail020

the view of the Columbia River.  Beautiful! 013

This is where we had dinner, (thanks Rick and Heidi for the girt certificate).  The View Point Inn.  It's an amazing little resort with a fantastic restaurant that overlooks the gorge.  You see that open door right in the middle?  That was our table. : )

We showed up in time to watch the sunset.  I don't know if there is anything more relaxing then waiting for delicious food to be served, watching a sunset in the company of the man you love, and having no children around.  It was bliss.  027The sunset was amazing026         

This is where they filmed the prom scene in the movie Twilight!  I felt just like Bella and Edward. : )033 And here's a random picture of us with our server.  He just decided to take it, and who am I to say no?  It was a fabulous night, I would suggest it to anyone who needs a romantic escape.035

This looks fantastic. What a perfect evening, I mean really, it can't get much better than that.

I'm so jealous right now. Tyler is still to young ( for me) to leave over night. Sounds wonderful.

That place is beautiful and so are you. Can't wait to see that movie.

Mandy said...

I'll have to put this on make list of places to go in Oregon. Those views are AMAZING!! I could use a little getaway myself right now!

Bridget said...

Wow. That looks amazing. I'm sure you sold a lot of us on the place when you mentioned Twilight was filmed there. :)

Heidi said...

You're pictures turned out WAY better than mine. I guess I need to learn how to use my camera. So glad I forced you guys to go and that you had a perfect evening. How could you not!

Kelsey said...

Did you dye your hair red? Not that it's all I noticed. The place is totally gorgeous! I've been bugging Spencer about needing a vacation but I guess I'll have to have a baby instead. I suppose it will be quite some time now until I do. ße sure to live it up this summer with Jake around!

Jon and Sarah Jackson Family said...

So you're a Twilighter too. We're a pathetic lot aren't we. So...did you decide to sprinkle Jake with glitter and make him stand in the Sunlight? Glad you had a good time. I could use one of those getaways myself.

Love the picture of the server. Do you think he's single? Loved getting a recap on the romantic getaway. Now that both you and Heidi have been there I guess I've got to go as well. Maybe for my honeymoon? Just got find me a husband now. You are beautiful. So fun to see pictures of you. I miss your face and your voice and your funny sense of humor. I really like you and can't wait to chat forever. I wish you were going to be here in a few hours.

Heather said...

OK! So I really need all the details of that place. I will be in the "other" Heather's boat as well. I could see myself honeymooning there someday! Now I just need to get me married!
