little cotton wood canyon

Well, I feel like we have awesome intentions for date night.
Unfortunately they always seem to involve strange unplanned events.
For example, we were supposed to go to a chalk art festival this night. We read about it online...seemed legitimate. 
We drove up to where we thought it was, and then we drove even farther.
we couldn't find it.
We continued to drive until we were at the top of the ski resort.
It wasn't there either.
We got to the top just in time for the sun to set and decided to replace chalk art with sunset for the time being.
We watched the beautiful sunset and snuggled all together.
We piled back into the car for our second attempt at finding this so calked chalk festival.
We pulled up at the address finally, it was supposed to be going for another 3 hours.
It was dark, all the lights were off in all of the surrounding buildings, but with the car headlights we could see evidence of some chalk.
As we scanned over it with the car headlights it looked like 5 or 6 people had doodled their name, a rainbow, some flowers, etc. 
and that was all. 
NOT a festival.
so we drove to applebee's with our three year old at 10:00 at night instead because we were all starving.
We got some pretty funny looks but those chicken strips have never tasted so good.
