Gma met us at Wills Pit Stop at the mouth of Provo Canyon and we put Lilly in her car. This was a little tough for me....I was fine until I would start thinking about the fact that the longest I've been away from her is like 1 hour or so and that I missed her....then I would tear up a little bit.
We started driving and my first thoughts were that we were going to the Hot Pots in Midway, but we kept on driving so I figured we were going to Park City to do something. Now, I've never been to Deer Valley so I was lost when Mike turned off the main road in Park City...we ended up going to the Stein-Eriksson Lodge at Deer Valley for a couples massage and dinner. It was a very pleasant suprise.
We started out changing and going upstairs for our massage. It was really relaxing...except when my bum got massacred and Mike's calf the same. haha. After that we just kinda hung around at the spa....the locker rooms each had a whirlpool, sauna, and steam room in them which were way nice. Mike LOVES steam rooms so he was in heaven. He's been sick the last few days and the eucalyptus in the steam room helped clear out his sinuses and his throat had stopped hurting. We also took advantage of the hot tub and heated pool outside, which was way nice. (I hope so for a hotel where the standard rooms are $800 a night!!!!!!! we about died!)
After getting ready we went to dinner there. It was delicious! We split a salad and Mike got tuna seared with coconut and I had goat cheese with blackberries and pistachios for starters. Then mike got a filet and I had duck (I love duck!). We also had a bottle of sparkling cider...which we love...it was $4 a glass or $15 for the bottle...so we got the bottle. While we were waiting for it I told Mike it better not be something you can get at Walmart if it was $15. He said if it was it better be Martinelli's, our very favorite...and low and behold.....it was Martinelli's, which we haven't bought at Walmart for a long time because it went from $1.74 to $2.08, and we think that's ridiculous......plus we just bought 4 bottles at Costco for $7 something! haha...we laughed pretty hard. I told mike we were going to keep the bottle and use it for a vase and a water pitcher for the rest of our lives....haha
It was a great day. It was nice to be able to spend time with Mike and enjoy our anniversary together.
Today Mike woke up worse than he's been for a few days...so we went to urgent care to get him tested for strep......the swab was negative but he has a bad ear infection that is also a strep infection...so he gets to take amoxicillin for 10 days...yay! so far lilly and I aren't sick at all...and it better stay that way!
