4-0

My husband recently turned the big 4-0, along with his twin brother. To celebrate, my sister-in-law and I surprised them with an overnight trip to French Lick Springs Resort where we stayed at the West Baden Springs hotel. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous and we had a great time. We joined the boys as they played a round of golf (we didn't play, just rode along in the carts), walked around and admired the hotel and went in the shops, had a fantastic dinner (one of the best I've ever had!), and spent a little time playing around in the casino (I won $10 from a 2-cent slot machine, LOL). Our room was beautiful! Normally, I get a little creeped out sleeping in a hotel bed, but, this room was so clean and luxurious that I had one of my best nights of sleep ever. The resort also has many other features that we didn't even have time to enjoy - a top-notch spa, a swimming pool, riding stables, and outdoor gardens. I definitely plan to go back for a spa trip with the girls. Here are a few pictures from our trip.


This was another surprise for Bruce's 40th - at home, he awoke to a yard full of penguins and this big birthday greeting!



The four of us on the golf course


The golf course was so pretty (and the guys said it was a great course to play)


The guys before dinner - yes, they are identical twins (Bruce is on the left, his brother on the right)



The front lobby of the hotel




This picture does not do it justice, but, in the center of the hotel is this huge light fixture. At night, it glows and fades to different colors - beautiful!





The hotel center, where you can see the hotel rooms that have an indoor view. We were on the outer section, and had an outdoor view






Our room and super-comfy bed!










I can't believe I didn't take any pictures of the outside of the hotel. You should click over to their site and take a look. It is stunning. We had such a nice, relaxing trip. If you are anywhere near this area (French Lick, Indiana), I highly recommend a visit.

What an awesome gift for your hubby. Even though your husband has a twin brother, you can really tell the two apart. I'm so glad that you all had a great time. Sounds like alot of fun.
