insta-weekend

Weekends just go too quickly! We spent ours in Park City (childless, thanks to grandma and papa) and it was realllllllly hard to leave. We don't "go out" a whole lot because we don't have a lot of babysitting options, so when the kids are away......we cram in as much as we can.
 Here are a few quick phone snaps of the festivities (all of which included eating and/or mountains.)
We ate at one of our favorite places for special occasions up there--The Riverhorse. We hadn't been a few years, and we enjoyed our amazing meal while listening to the live music and watching it pour outside.....it was perfect.
We got up early for a ride. I must say this whole "riding a bike thing" has been really fun......I just started last week and have since logged 58 miles......my qauds are still burning.....fun stuff. 
We devoured sushi (hey locals--half off rolls all summer!) and ice cream and walked the streets of Park City, hand in hand, because....why not.
We saw Moonrise Kingdom which I really truly believe to be one of the best films ever. EVER. It was so wonderfully and brilliantly artistic, and I really appreciated all of the detail and subtle humor. It was such a smart movie, and I recommend it, if that sounds like your kind of show.
We set out on a beautiful hike......"set out" being the key phrase, because we never actually made it to our destination. We ended up in Urgent Care instead. 
You know, because we are so extreme and hardcore and adventurous. 
Well.....actually, because Robby has some crazy feet with nuts and screws and bolts rattling around inside, and his toe just likes to causally dislocate every now and then. 
When we are deep in the forrest. Next to a moose. No big deal. 
It's a funny story (now that it's over), and I will share it later, just for kicks.

All I can say is, going out on dates is my very favorite thing.

I truly believe that there is nothing better for your family than nurturing your marriage. I absolutely ADORE date days with my husband- and when we are able to travel together- even more divine. It looks like the two of you had a wonderful time and I am sure the kids see the joy you return home with~

That sounds like a great weekend.
I love your photos though, they always are a highlight of your blog for me.
And I always love pictures of the mountains. It's always so pretty where you live.
And I'm going to have to check out that movie!
