Jake and I had an overnight getaway for the first time in 3 years this weekend!! Yep, the last night we spent away from the kids we only had 2 kids!! So, this was a big deal and we can't thank my cousin Justin Allsop and his adorable wife, Becca, enough! It was so relaxing to go up to Deer Valley Resort in Park City and listen to the outdoor symphony. The music was so entertaining (there was this great fiddling threesome that performed with them), the outdoor sunset was beautiful, the Quizno's sandwiches were yummy and the company couldn't have been better! We owe another thank you to our friends Travis and Lanell Ward for letting us spend the night in their fabulous cabin in Heber! It was so quiet and nobody even woke us up to go potty!! In the morning we ate breakfast and observed some deer, hummingbirds and giant bees! I only wish I would have taken my nice camera to get some better shots of the gorgeous scenery!
The perfect getaway ended with a school shopping spree in the Park City outlet stores. I decided I should always do my school shopping without the kids! It was fast, inexpensive and nobody fought with me at all! The only problem with the weekend was that I forgot my stack of coupons I had collected to take with me...this will not surprise anyone who has read my previous posts!! All in all...it was one of the best weekends I have had in about 3 years!! I only hope it happens again before 3 more years pass!
