Today for our Bloggy Spring Break Trip, I am taking all of you to one of my most relaxing trips ever! Be prepared to enjoy the views!
Last October I took a little weekend getaway up to Jackson Hole, WY. It was last minute, and thankfully I have great friends and neighbors that were willing to take my kids. How cool are they??? I had never been to Jackson before and may I just tell you how FAB-U-LOUS it was? If it weren't for my children, I wouldn't have come home. Well...all right, I would have, but for the record - I didn't want to.
Anyway, first of all let me tell you about where I stayed. It was this awesome resort called Spring Creek Ranch . I would love to stay there again, and would recommend it to anyone. I should have taken a pic of my room, but this one (below) from their website will do. Except replace the chair in the corner with a big comfy one. Oh - and there was a huge rustic fireplace, which was perfect for the chilly fall nights. Also the tub, though not jetted, was a good, deep, soaker tub, and I just HAD to soak both nights. I was going to call down for a massage, but ended up taking a 5 hour nap instead! I guess I was a little tired. Some of the rooms overlook the Grand Tetons. I'm tellin' ya... those views - killer!
I got in too late for dinner Thursday night (because it was off-season), so drive-thru Wendy's it was. Friday morning (pre-nap) I ate breakfast at Bubba's which was oh-so-totally-awesome. I had the Spanish Omelettes with grits and whole wheat toast. I also had a bite of their French Toast and it was to die for! The portions were HUGE - even the Half-portions. So worth every penny! I don't know if their BBQ is any good, but I'd recommend breakfast there anytime.
After a late breakfast I did some reading, followed by the famous 5 hour nap. I woke up in time for dinner! Dinner was at this great little Thai restaurant called "Bon Appe Thai". The Pad Thai was awesome as was the yellow curry. Mmmm! Making me hungry just thinking about it.
Then it was off to the town square. Of course many people think of the antler arches on each corner of town square when they think of Jackson.
Pretty cool, I guess. Here's a pic (from my camera phone) with it lit up at night.
Saturday morning I was too late for Breakfast at Bubba's, but Jedediah's Original House of Sourdough serves breakfast till 2 pm!!! Whoo-Hoo! I had myself some "SourJacks" as well as eggs and toast. It was sooooo good. And they make their own Olallieberry Jam (they have the berries imported from Oregon). It was really good on the sourdough pancakes.
It was so much fun and very relaxing. It was just what I needed. I decided I really could live there! Too bad the only thing for sale in my price range is a 3 week-outta-the-year time share. Oh - but there was this 1 Bed, 1 Bath, 604 Sq Ft condo for only $350,000. (Yeah - Right!)
Anyway - it was awesome and fun and relaxing and beautiful! I loved the small-town atmosphere and even the touristy qualities (reminds me of home). But not stuffy like other over-priced ski towns. It's very laid back - cowboy hats and all. Maybe next time I go it will be a little warmer and I'll do a run down the river. That'd be awesome! Thanks to my friend for the invite!!!
Hope all of you bloggy-friends enjoyed the "trip" as much as I did. Be sure to come back tomorrow for our third Spring Break Trip! We'll probably head on over to the West Coast, so pack accordingly!
