Park City Weekend

We (hubby and I) sometimes drive up the road to Park City to hang out on weekends when our kids are away visiting their other parents or off doing their own things. Our favorite thing to do there is window shop and check out the stores along the historic district. This past weekend it was extra fun because my husband is building a very, very large home (around 17,000 sq. ft.) on top of the mountain and I got to have the personal tour of the home, stand on the platform over the concrete pit which will be the indoor swimming pool, see the massive amounts of custom woodwork in this home and get a glimpse of the exclusive community it's being built in. I must say, you feel sort of insignificant standing on top of a massive mountain surrounded by huge vacation homes and towering aspen trees !

After the "personal" tour, we ate an early dinner at a quaint little restaurant on historic Main Street across from the Mary G. Steiner Egyptian Theatre which the Sundance Film Festival uses as one of its venues. Our only famous person siting was Mark Eaton, former Utah Jazz player, current business man, tv person
ality and motivational speaker. He is one tall drink of water. We laughed because it seems whenever we see famous people, it seems to be athletes ! Here are a few photos from our weekend:

Looks like a lovely day trip! I'm jealous. It's always nice to get away, even if it's not far away!

(replying to your comment on my blog) Thanks so much for your kind words! I can't stand baby and theme fabrics either! I searched high and low for cake boards- the only ones i was able to find had scalloped edges(which won't work since i'm covering it in patterned paper and not paint.) I picked up some thick insulation board today and am going to try to cut the size circles i need out of it! We'll see how that goes!!

looks like tons of fun. I really love going up to Park City, you kinda feel like you have gotten out of Utah without really going to far!!! window shopping up there is really fun too. I need to go again
