I gotta say it, LOOK AT MY TICKETER. Actually it is off by one day. I am sitting in the DTW airport right now. I am on the way to AKL-Jambo for a me, myself and I mini-vacation.

Now to back up and read what's been happening with your trip.

Years ago we went to Yellowstone and stayed in the Old Faithful Inn. We made sure to go while Sarah still qualified for "child" rates at the buffets, because even the buffets were EXPENSIVE. We figured with what we were saving with her "child rate" we could splurge and eat at the nicer places. Sarah has always eaten adult foods so when eating out we needed to either pay for an adult meal or find decent buffets where she could choose the duck, squid, etc. (No mac and cheese/grill cheese/kid food for her taste buds.) Now we justify eating at or visiting special, expensive places by saying, we are creating memories. And memories are worth paying the price. Sometimes.

Dinner looked amazing. I love lamb chops! Yummy cocktail but what's with the hardware?

That's a gorgeous dining room too.

That looks like a wonderful meal, and while the prices were expensive, I'm sorry to say that we see prices like that sort of a lot. Not really often, but nice places demand nice prices. I would have been all over that Prime Rib, Swordfish (sans olive tapenade), the apps looked GREAT! Sign me up. We need to make our reservation for next May!

Ellen, those are great photos! That lodge and that food look amazing. I can't wait to hear about the shower. You've got lots of teasing and foreshadowing in your update!

Where are you going in a couple weeks?

Wow - the dining room is BEAUTIFUL! All of your food looked really tasty too - I would have ordered the steelhead as well; I'm a big fan of it.

Uh oh - sounds like the hike may not have gone so well…...

Wow! Looks like a fabulous dinner! Quite a list of celebs - I guess that makes it even more special! I'm about what's coming next.
