With the rest of our time off, we decided to take a little vacation to good ol' Salt Lake City! On thursday, we stayed the night at Castle Creek Inn in Sandy. It's such a cool place! We stayed here on our honeymoon. The rooms are all themed around castles. They even have lion-shaped door-knockers.......and since Cortney was wearing a lion shirt, I decided it was only appropriate to snap a picture of the pair.......
On Friday, we headed to the slopes at Snowbird! The snow was a bit crusty, but the company was great!
Afterwards, we headed to La Quinta Inn in Salt Lake and got ready for a night out on the town! We went and ate some Chinese foods at Charlie Chow's. Mmm Mmm good!
And because neither of us had ever ventured to IKEA before, we decided to check it out! What an awesome store! We found all kinds of awesome things we liked! If only we had a shopping spree to that store! And as a bonus, we found a dark shade for our window so I can sleep better during the day. Afterwards, we enjoyed time watching some episodes of the Office - what a funny show! I'd never seen it before and we're starting to get into it - ha!
On Saturday, we enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast and then spent the day at the Gateway window shopping. We also saw the new movie, Alice in Wonderland (in 3D). It was a pretty good show - very creative!
After that, we got to go to the Jazz game! Woot! I always love going to the Jazz games. They're so much fun! This time, food was included in our tickets! Bonus!
We also made a very important decision this last week-we got a new camera! It's a Nikon digital SLR. Holy cow, that camera's got power! I love it! We're both hoping to get into photography a little more and learn about the photography world. Here are some shots from the night we took with the new camera.......
I'm excited to be able to capture more.....here are some of the first pics we took. We love it!
It was such a great weekend! It was nice to be able to spend so much time together and to have some fun! Too bad school starts right back up tomorrow :(
