Park City

Yuck! We are so sick of this nasty inversion! I can't believe how bad it has gotten this year. To get some relief we decided to head up to Park city for the night. We shopped around for a while and went to dinner at Maxwells. We had never been to Maxwells before but it was AMAZING. The place was packed and there is a reason why. They have the best east-coast, thin crust, authentic pizza. It may be my new favorite place in PC. Beckett loved it too, he slurped up his plate of spaghetti as fast as he could.

MLK Jr Weekend gotta love a 4 day weekend. We did A LOT of relaxing, eating. and spending time together. This month we had 2 birthdays in our family, Charlee (24) and Josh (28). We technically ended up celebrating a few times but officially celebrated with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory at City Creek Center. Beckett got a little cold and so he was exhausted, but that didn't deter him from running around City Creek like a mad man.

Saturday we wanted to get out of the house for a bit, so Josh made us go to Cabellas :) Beckett loved looking at all the animals and the fish. Animals are his faaaavorite thing right now. He can't get enough. We made sure he dressed the part too: camo & Carhartt.

I also baked some DELISH bread. MMM mmmm. It's kind of a goal of mine to be able to bake bread as good as my grandmother can. I will admit, this last batch almost hit the mark.

Our last small adventure of the break (besides laying around and watching movies), was a trip to Costco. Sometimes I feel like Costco is the happiest place on earth. Maybe it's the good prices, or the the bulk items, but it's probably just the free samples. Beckett had a hay day with the samples, he tried a fruit smoothie and ended up with it all over his face and body, and then chowed down on a salmon burger. What 18 month old likes salmon? Beckett, apparently. He is getting pickier with his food choices by the minute, so i'll take what I can get.
