Stein Ericson Lodge

Josh won a trip to Park City at work for 2  nights. It was wonderful to finally get away with any kids! We headed up there on Thursday afternoon and were able to stay until Saturday afternoon. We checked into our beautiful and HUGE lodge, then headed to Main Street for dinner. We ended up eating at a Pizza and Pasta place. I absolutely loved it. Josh didn't love his phili steak sandwich, but agreed the place was one we would like to go back to. After dinner we stopped at a grocery store to grab a few snacks and something to eat for breakfast. Of course, their halloween happened to be on sale so we stocked up. We spent the rest of the evening relaxing, and enjoying the private hot tub on the deck. Here are a few pics from the deck:
 Friday was very relaxed. We slept great, and slept in! It was so nice not to have to get up with kids. We finally managed to get up and head out to the outlet stores. We spent the afternoon shopping. We got some spending money so it was fun to get a few things courtesy of Josh's company. By 4 we were done shopping and pretty bored :) There wasn't much to do in Park City in between seasons. All the fun summer stuff I wanted to do was shut down, and the winter stuff hadn't opened yet. We couldn't find a movie theatre with any good movies, so we headed to Walmart and bought Just Go With It. We went to one of Josh's Mexican accounts for a yummy dinner, then back to the lodge for the evening. We watched the movie, laughed a lot, and soaked in the hot tub again. Eventhough we didn't do much, it was nice to not HAVE to do anything.
Saturday morning we used our food credit for a very small, overpriced meal. It cost $50 for little pancakes, an omelette, and orange juice. We laughed bc the food wasn't even that good. It reaffirmed that we could never live the expensive life...just not for us. It was ridiculous and SO not worth the money. Oh well. It was free to us so I guess we can't complain. We checked out of the lodge and headed home. We stopped at Fashion Place Mall for an hour before rejoining reality again. Such a nice few days off! Thanks Josh for working so hard to win us the trip!
