newpark hotel getaway

While Grandpa and Grandma were here we had planned to escape 3 of the 4 kids, and stay in Park City as a couple + baby Drake. After they got here, we had a change of heart about leaving everyone and quickly planned it for the 8 of us to go instead. 
We love Newpark Hotel, it is the only place to stay in Park City...IMHO. We have been going there since Devin was just a little guy, and we have made many traditions in those years. We stayed in our favorite suite, and then added the attached room on to it as well. 
We arrived at the hotel, got all settled, and then headed out for dinner together. We took everyone to Maxwells, which is a family favorite. We even branched out on the menu, and weren't disappointed. 
We went back to the hotel, and did what the kids had been begging for already...swimming. It was Drake's first experience, and he loved it. It was fun to swim as a family, and have Grandpa and Grandma there to get all the cute pictures for us.
After we got everyone settled in to the rooms, Paul and I headed out for a little date. We walked around, got some ice cream, and talked. Nowadays dates don't have to be anything extravagant, just time to talk in peace is lovely. We were going to go see a movie, but we opted for sleep over a movie that we weren't super interested in seeing anyway.
We woke up and got to explore Main Street Park City, which is always more fun with people who have never done it before. We stopped in some of the shops that were actually open, read that as Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. We also had a delicious breakfast at The Bridge Cafe, which I am still dreaming about my omelet.  We decided we weren't ready to go back home until we had a competitive game of bowling. Paul ended up winning, which actually hasn't happened in years.
We called this adventure a total success. We were so happy that we
changed the plans and took everyone with us. Although Paul and I definitely don't get enough alone time, we also don't get to see his parents often enough that we wanted to use up any time being away. We decided that this needed to be a new tradition while they are in town.
