Honeymoon!

So our honeymoon was awesome! We didn't leave our reception til like 9:30, and we had to go all the way to Vegas...We thought we could make it, but as we were up since 6am, it had been a looong day, so we had to stop in some random place in between and sleep in the car for a couple of hours, so we didnt make it til 4am, luckily they let us have a late check out so we didn't have to leave until noon. After we checked out we went over to the Excaliber for the lunch buffet and to shop a little, we both got some sunglasses and I got a purse, afterwards we started the long drive up to park city. Our room there was amazing! It had two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a living room, a fireplace!

Since we were so close to Salt Lake City, we decided to do a session at the temple and meet up with my Uncle, we had the most amazing time! Afterwards my uncle asked if we would like to go out to dinner, since our original dinner plans fell through because we got out of the temple too late. We said sure, and he ended up taking us to The Roof, a very lovely restaurant on the top floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial building (across from the temple). Once up there, he talked to one of the waitresses for a couple of minutes and then came back to us and said enjoy your dinner! Gave us both hugs and left. We were really confused until the waitress came up to us and said that he had he paid for everything, including gratuity, I was in such shock, and touched by his kindness I started to cry. We were seated by a window with a beautiful view of the temple, we enjoyed a very delicious dinner buffet, and desert, along with live piano music, before heading back to Park City.

We also went horse back riding at place just outside Park City, it was awesome, our guide was a rugged, swearin', old cowboy! We went on some back country trails, that were super narrow and steep! While we were riding down a particularly steep hill and the guide told us to make sure to not let our horses run down. Everything was going fine, until suddenly my horse bucked out of nowhere and started to run down the hill, luckily I was able to slow it down before running into another horse. During all this though, I let out a horrific scream, because I thought for sure I was going to fall off and hit a tree. Which in turn scared Kyle really bad, he thought I had fallen off. Once everything had calmed down, our guide told me off for letting the horse run , and then told me that it must've been the ground bees that spooked the horse, which apparently happens often at that spot...it would have been nice to know this before starting down the hill. Oh well, lol, it makes for a good story. All in all it was a very beautiful ride, with lots of gorgeous views!

Another day we walked up and down the main street of Park City, which was nice and relaxing, we bought some shirts and a scrap book, as well as discovered the amazingness of the apple pie caramel apple! The most amazing caramel apple ever!

Also while we were in Park City we went to dinner at the Red Brick with our friends Mark and Monica who were on their way back up to Canada after their honeymoon. We ordered some delicious bbq chicken pizza, and I got some cream soda, and Kyle got some homemade on tap rootbeer, that he thought was "awesome", I wasn't a fan of the cream soda however, I thought it was gross, lol, the homemade on tap stuff was not for me...

We also discovered a Best Buy that had an underground parking garage...Kyle was very excited about this...haha.

The day before we left, we went to an Oktoberfest in Snowbird. It was Kyle's first one, I'd grown up going to different ones every year. It was lots of fun! Kyle got to try an authentic bratwurst, and we enjoyed some awesome German music! We went around to all the vendors looking for souvenirs, when we found a lovely jewelery stand, where Kyle bought me a beautiful blue necklace and earing set!
Our honeymoon was amazing we had so much fun!!! :-)
