^^believe it or not, the best picture of us all weekend.
SO. Two and a half years later I decided we needed to take our tax refund and DO something with it instead of "save" it like those silly smart people do. It took some convincing, but the man was very pleased with what I concocted for our weekend away.

One of my favorite places on earth. And now his. ;)
We drove down Friday after work, and got in just after dark. We ran to the grocery store to spend our entire tax rebate on a cheese wheel, and then turned around and went back home to Rexburg.
After grocery shopping, we had juuust enough time to get Matt some Del Taco and enjoy the hot tub on the porch that peaceful starry night.
Saturday morning we woke up when we felt like it! Ahh sleeping in, we love you so. And boy we slept in, because we were sunk deep down in a California King with plush cloud pillows aiding our dreams while the morning light peered through the wood-shuttered windows lining the east wall, hiding the incredible view of the valley.
We went to Kneaders for breakfast because I have heard such great things, and it did not disappoint! Who am I kidding... it is my absolute FAVORITE place on the planet next to Disneyland [and the arms of my moon] [but i may have been in his arms whilst in Kneaders, so best of both worlds!] !!! Imagine this: glass cased bakery shelves filled with decadent pastries like eclairs, croissants, fruit tarts, sugar cookies, chocolate cookies, cookies of all kinds!, donuts, bear claws, and turnovers. You turn around and see oak shelves up to the ceiling adorned with scarves, home decor, jewelry, frames, and all things lovely you would want in your home! They also serve lunch - paninis! The best lunch menu item invented! Not to mention their infamous french toast, which we of course ordered because not only is Kneaders famous for the crave-able meal, but it is also my favorite breakfast food ever for all eternity has been always will be. So Happy Father's Day to me, ha! Sorry Matt. The line was a bit crazy, but neither of us seemed to mind because we were so happy. :)
We went downtown to Historic Main Street to do some window shopping and find a Christmas ornament for last year since we never got one. We decided moving into our trailer was a big moment in 2012 for us, so this wagon will do the job :)
I guess we should have clarified which "our/are" we meant when we had the cashier inscribe the thing. But we figured it kind of fits the whole "trailer" persona, so we will leave it. Haha.
We stumbled across a few photography and art exhibits and scored some sweet crackers and cheese, strawberry lemonade, and chocolate covered pretzels! Ha! We decided we want 3 canvases in a row of the same photo on our wall. Probably a photo of aspens, because they are that gorgeous.
I just love Historic Main Street. It's filled with some really quirky things, and some really lovely things. And Cow's ice cream! That's quirky and lovely at the same time.
We also made a stop at the outdoor outlet mall because I wanted to score some running shoes, and Matt actually wanted to get some jeans! What in the world? I guess he's tired of wearing jeans with holes. ;) A successful Nike and Gap shopping trip for the Larsons!
We had dinner at Red Rock, a restaurant that brews their own root beer! Matt said it tastes like a root beer barrel candy. It was delish!
Dessert is a must, so we got Matt some Dippin' Dots and me some Cold Stone before we saw Man of Steel! Matt hadn't had Dippin' Dots in years, and he was craving that Rainbow Ice!
Sunday we slept in again, Matt made delicious organic scrambled eggs, we caught a 1:00 sacrament meeting, and headed to the "Park Silly Sunday Market" to try all of the merchants' free samples ;) We ate some dinner, took a nap [what's a nap? so wonderful], and then headed home! Such a fun yet relaxing weekend.
Bye Park City! Bye wonderful getaway with my man of steel! Ha ha.... Supermatt.
