Park City in STYLE

Rem's new job is working out really nicely for me us. Last month when his team hit their monthly goal, he brought home a brand new iPad. This month we got a free weekend at the Montage in Park City.

It was pretty great.

Check out the room.

 Walk-in closet,
 Bathing facilities!!!

We of course had to make a pit-stop at Wal-Mart before we got our swanky weekend off and running. My favorite part of our trip was when Rem's boss called to make sure we had gotten to the hotel and checked in alright. Rem said we had, we were just at Wal-Mart, to which Justin replied, "I got you 2 nights at the nicest hotel in Utah and you're at Wal-Mart?!"

We are not that classy. But boy, the cold cereal and juice never quit flowing in room 923.

We took the shuttle down to main street Saturday after getting out of our room about, oh, 1pm. (We had to finish Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous....(Could she possibly save Miss America AGAIN?! C'est impossible!))

Other than that, we literally did nothing. We lounged in the room all day, watched movies, ate peanut M&M's, took naps, etc. It was awesome.

Oh, AND we ate at Ruth's Chris Saturday night with Rem's company. We were laughing pretty good to ourselves as we listened to everyone talk about their day at the spa, and their massages, and facials, and pedicures.

Well, were there any Reese's Puffs at your fancy spa? I didn't think so.

Slave Labor...err, I mean FAMILY time.

I think we may have found Tyson's calling in life: Car Washer.

 He especially loves going over spots you've already done about 14 times, to make sure it's done right.

 Rem helped a bit. 
Also, have I ever mentioned that this kid LOVES water? Give him a muddy puddle and a piece of watermelon, and you've got yourself a 4 hour babysitter.

I helped too, I wasn't just barking orders and telling them to look cute for the camera (Remington). I just stopped for a second to grab some pictures of my boys in action. Good call, no?

It's a....


I know I seem unexcited. I AM excited, I just REALLY thought it was a girl. Not that I really even wanted a girl more than a boy necessarily, I just hate being wrong.

Here he is. Our little man.
 Also, a creepy Alien-type head shot.
Frightening, yet adorable all at the same time.
Thoughtful, congratulatory comments are now being accepted.

FHE: Utah State Fair

I don't know why I'm drawn to it, but I love paying 47 dollars for a corn dog at the State Fair. It's the local-ness of it all, you know? And the best day to go? We learned that when thunderstorms are threatening, no one wants to get wet. Lucky for us, it did not rain on our party. 

 Gloomy weather looming
 Some sort of fair representative
 Chili cheese fries just sounded soooooooooooooo good.
 Tyson did well at first. Good sport.
 Designated cancer lounge
 We saw pigs
 Kara kind of did her own thing. 
 I made Rem take a picture of me and Tyson, since I am never in any pictures. Also I love to look at myself.
 The spoiled Johnson kids got pony rides. 

 Well la-dee-da.
 I think this is as good a pony ride as any.
 The Johnson clan
 The Atwoods, in our glory.
 Here's about where we started to lose him.
The best way to end a night at the fair? 9 dollar lemonade of course.
But hey, it was fresh squeezed.
And I was pretty thirsty.
Also, cash is like monopoly money whenever I have some. 

Until next year State Fair.
