Park City

What a rockin' anniversary weekend!! It started off on Saturday with The Dark Knight--such a good movie. We loved it. All we were told about the movie was how "dark and evil" it was, but after seeing it, we both thought it wasn't as bad as we thought...I mean of course it was evil cause any bad guy is--but it was cool.

Then we went to my favorite restaurant--The Olive Garden. Yummy yummy!
After dinner we went to a concert in Layton, called IMAGINE. It's a group of 4 men that dress, act, and sing the Beatles songs. It was a blast! They were so good and sounded JUST like the Beatles. It was outdoors and great weather and fun music. We came back to Ben's dad's house to sleep in the pool house (which we do often). And it was decorated with Reeses, Skittles, 2 monkeys that were holding hands:) and a huge bouquets of bright pink roses!! SO pretty!Sunday we went to church with Ben's mom and had lunch with her before we left around 4pm to a secret place! I had no idea, I kept thinking hard about where we could possibly be going and I honestly had no idea. I even fell asleep pretty much the whole way and when I woke up--PARK CITY!! Yay, so fun! This was our posh room: We rented Vantage Point Sunday night--great movie and made Mac & Cheese. Then Monday we woke up and went and worked out at the sweet gym there in the Marriot. Then we went swimming for a couple hours.We went shopping at the Tanger Outlet mall which was so fun. We had a few 20% off coupons we just HAD to use:) So we each got a couple new pairs of shoes. Much needed:) Love them! Then since we had spent some moola on shopping we decided to bag the nice dinner idea and go to ARBY'S! Which was so good!On our way home today I thought the surprises were over! But NO! We took a detour in SLC and went to a Go-Kart racing place! We first met go-kart racing and he married me cause I was so good. We went back last year to see if he could win and he couldn't, so today he was especially determined to beat his wifey! HAHA!! I WON! I spanked him. The guys that worked there kept cheering and clapping for me and throwing their hands up like "What's going on?" when Ben would pass.
Here are our times! I'm rider 20 and he's rider 11!
Poor Benny. His self-esteem was a little shot, but that's why he loves me! Cause I'm always a challenge! :)
Anyway, it was so fun to get away and be together on our special anniversary. I'm the luckiest girl EVER.
