I was so clueless in high school when the Olympics came to Utah. I was so wrapped up in dancing and my super-important life, ha! I remember being chosen to go with a group of kids from my high school to watch the skiing in park city. I turned it down for who knows what reason. I'm an idiot. I kept telling Jarom how cool it would have been to go....maybe because I was so obsessed with watching the Sumer Olympics just barely. Go Phelps!
Kids were practicing their technique by sliding down huge ramps with skis/snowboards hooked to their feet and doing back flips and jumps into a giant pool. I wanted to try it SO badly. We settled for the Coaster and Zip-line.
I am super zoomed-in on this picture....but those are our zip-line harnesses coming up to us. I was scared to death. I was just praying that I didn't totally lose it and humilate myself before it was over. I used to LIVE for scary stuff like this....but now I'm the biggest baby ever. I didn't feel bad...because Jarom was totally scared too, I could tell. Ha Ha!
We rode the ski-lift up the moutain (about 1000+ feet) and then Zip-lined down it. They let us go at the same time...it was so fun...I loved it. We also did the huge Alpine Coaster.
I was all about that one because I could control my own speed. Jarom was at the bottom laughing his butt off at how slow I managed to come down the mountain.
We then hit Cafe Rio, of course. I could NEVER NEVER NEVER get sick of it. Oh-how we missed it while living in Omaha!!! If I wanted to be insanely rich I would move back to Omaha and start one up! They have EVERY restaurant in the world there....expect Cafe Rio. They are totally missing out. We then went swimming, hit the steam room (our nightly ritual) and ate bowl after bowl of rainbow sherbert while we watched movies!
Saturday we went swimming, toured all of the little shops and boutiques on Main Street and Jarom took me to the yummiest restaurant ever. The Westgate grill. It was fun to have a fancy dinner/evening out with my hubby and no screaming baby. I think for our anniversary last year we went to the Olive Garden and ended up getting our food put into To-Go boxes because Jaxson was tired and screaming. FUN...and Super-romantic let me tell ya.
Yep...I got to go with HIM. Yum-o!
He's freaking hilarious...and that is what I love most. We have the exact same sense of humor...which is pretty much why I knew it was a match from that start! When we were walking around the little shops on Main Street he was getting so annoyed. I finally asked what was up and he responded, "People don't like this crap! They pretend they do...because it makes them feel cool and special:) These are freakish little wierd, ridiculously expensive stores that only lame people shop at." Ha ha....I was actually having a great time...but I took that as our que to go. First we made time to stop and laugh our butt off at a FUR covered Jock strap on a manican in a window that was ONLY 9,000.00. What a steal.
We headed to something a little more up our alley...COLD STONE.
I'm already wanting to go back, just looking at this picture! The Westgate grill was soooooo good. It was one of those meals when the waitress asks if your done...(because your plate is completely gone except one teeny-tiny bite)...and your first instinct is to scream at her "NO....put it down"......but you don't. Ha ha....that so happened to me.
Jarom was a good sport...and actually was extremely patient while walking through the outlets on three separate occassions. Shopping used to be more fun for him....because we would get HIM stuff every once in a while. Now that Jaxson is here....Not so much:) I did get one shirt....Jarom nothing. Jaxson, on the other hand....One of everything! A winter coat, camo and orange shoes that I am totally in love with, a halloween costume, etc!
Oh-How could I forget the robes!?! Oh----My----Gosh.
I never thought I was a robe person. But...I changed my mind. They had two huge, fluffy white robes waiting in our room and I got my use out of it during those 5 days. I lived in that thing. Last night (three days after returning remember) I got in a bubble bath and stole my mom's big white robe from her closet. My dad found me wrapped up in it on the couch and said, "What is this? Haven't quite snapped out of it yet?"
HA HA HA.....I never wanted to snap out of it.
It was just what we needed after the stressful few months we've had with Jarom's graduation and Bar Exam. We had such a good time that we even booked another weekend there next Summer! Yay.
We were extremely anxious to see our boy! He had the best time ever with my aunt Lana and was totally spoiled rotten. He didn't miss me at all....UNTIL he saw me again that is.
Then he totally freaked out.
He didn't cry once for 5 days....slept perfect, giggled and ran wild. THEN he saw me...suddenly realized I had left him...became completely irrate...and cried the rest of the day. KIND OF RUINED MY EXCITEMENT TO SEE HIM:) Every time I even got close to him he would try to claw me or slap me. HE was SOOO ticked off at me....it was so sad.
The Good News: He must love me too:)
I love you Jarom...and you have permision to take me on another getaway as soon as you'd like.
