Back to real life and another birthday for both of us!

So, I know we have been home from our big trip for almost two weeks and I am a slacker blogger but we have been home for about 24 hours since then. We have been working none stop since we got home. Anyway, the vacation was amazing! We both just feel so lucky and blessed to have been able to have that experience! We did and saw so many amazing things. Thankfully everything worked out how we planned on our trip home (the whole 36 HOUR journey!) We even all got business class from Tokyo to LA!

Now that we are back to real life, work is crazy like usual for the summer. Kurtis and I flew together this past week so that we could be with each other on our birthdays. Kurtis's birthday is the 18th and mine is the 19th. So, we thought we would get home from work late afternoon and his birthday and go to dinner. Well, thankfully it worked out that way, we were thinking we might be spending his birthday in Souix Falls, South Dakota! For work we were there on Tuesday night for a very short layover. We flew out the next morning at 5:30 am. About 2 minutes into our flight we had some major problems that made us land back in Souix Falls. The plane was broken for the next two days so we were stuck hanging out in S.D. until it was fixed! Not my favorite place in the country but at least we were together and they figured out the problem and fixed it so we were safe and we got home only an hour after we were supposed to.

I have the best husband ever! For my birthday we went to Park City and rode the Alpine slide and coaster and had a blast! It was the most beautiful day ever! There was not a cloud in the sky and the breeze off the mountains up in Park City was perfect. We didn't even know before we went but there was a jazz festival going on on Main St. so we had a wonderful dinner at an outside table at the Eating Establishment on Main with live jazz and amazing food! Then, as we were getting ready to leave this guy in the visitor info booth snagged us and gave us a 2 night stay at a brand new resort hotel at the Canyons for $40! We can use it whenever between now and December! So, needless to say it was such a great day! I can't believe I am 27, pretty old. My husband is even older! He turned 30 this week! I love you babe! You are wonderful!
