Hotel Park City. They gave us a nice little upgrade to stay in on of their "cabins" which are small buildings of four or so hotel rooms with kitchen, living room, bedroom, deck, etc. So just more spacious than a basic hotel room.
Aura Spa. We hadn't gotten a couples massage since our honeymoon, so it was really nice and relaxing. We then got ready for dinner, headed back to the little downtown street to pick out a place to eat. We decided on a place called Zoom. It has a cool, old, western, lodge kind of feel to it. They had a guy playing guitar and singing who was AWESOME! And we don't feel that way about many singers...haha! The food was good. We had a few things that were really good and a few that were just ok. We left full and enjoyed our time there though.
We had to get up kind of early the next morning. Except now, sleeping in to us isn't as late as it used to be! So we were actually up around 7:30 anyways, but knew we needed to leave a little before 9:00. We had to get back to Provo to watch the Cole Man while the rest of Tony's family went to church with Phyllis. We figured a small church where we had never been before wasn't the best idea for a full on energy 2 year old. We met up with them and Phyllis and some other family members for lunch afterwards. We went to a place called Café 300. The food was really good, and it was like eating in someone's dining room. It was small and all the food was freshly made. They even made cupcakes for Phyllis's birthday because Tony's mom mentioned that's why we were all there. So sweet! You can tell Cole was a fan!
Next up was Phyllis's actual birthday party which was why we went to Utah in the first place. There were tons of friends and family there to celebrate. It was held at a local art museum. Tony's mom did a great job of planning and organizing everything. It turned out really nice.
Wild Grape. We made it to SLC before the rest of Tony's family, so we drove around a little bit and went up to the State Capitol building and got out and walked around a little bit.
We stayed at a hotel by the airport for the ease of leaving Monday. We slept in...so did Cole...until 7:45, and had breakfast at the hotel. Tony's family had to leave earlier than we did, so we said goodbye, but just stayed at the hotel and let Cole play while we took our time getting ready and packed up to fly home. Tony had promised Cole a trip to Target to get a new car, so we did that and on our way just randomly passed this cookie shop and decided to stop on our way back. Oh my gosh was it good!!! It's called Ruby Snap and they were seriously the best cookies! They have lots of different combinations of flavors that you don't usually see. The girl let us sample some, and by sample I mean have half a cookie, before we bought some. We decided we should go back to Utah to go there and to Park City! So they are some good cookies, I'm not lying!
We made our way back to the airport and had enough time to get some lunch. The SLC airport is really nice! We found a food area with Qdoba, Pei Wei, and a Boar's Head Sandwich shop. Not your usual airport fare. We had a hard time deciding what to get. Once we got on the plane, little man ate his Ruby Snap chocolate chip cookie and slept the rest of the flight. He's gotten to be a good little traveler.
We really liked Utah a lot and would love to go back sometime. The weather is amazing this time of year and it's cool to have that mountain view everywhere you go. The trip was really busy, but we got to see a lot, hang out with Tony's family, meet nice people, and celebrate Phyllis's 90th birthday. A successful trip!
