In partnership with Little America Cheyenne
Since Octavia was born almost three years ago I have not had one night where I did not have to wake up mid slumber. As soon as Ocki started to get the hang of the whole sleeping thing we had Jean-Luc. Time to start all over again with sleep training!
A kid free night has long been on my list of things to do.
Dave didn’t have very many sick days so we instead had a staycation in Cheyenne. We packed the kids off to Grandma’s house and headed to our local Little America.
Best part is we have partnered with Little America to give one of you a free night stay in their Cheyenne location! Click below to enter our Instagram Giveaway by December 22nd 2018. Then be sure to read on to hear more about our date night.
Dinner at Hathaway’s Restaurant
After dropping the kids off we headed to the Little America Resort. We had a 5:30 reservation at Hathaway’s Restaurant inside the hotel.
The atmosphere was dark and quiet — perfect for a romantic evening for two.
They started us out with some of their house rolls.
I am crazy about pasta, its a weakness of mine, so I got the Hathaway’s House pasta. Penne in a cream sauce with spinach and sun dried tomatoes hold the mushrooms.
Dave opted for their 16oz Herb-Crusted Prime Rib. This thing was huge! He ordered one pound which is a large serving and when it came out it was at least 3lbs!!! Oh, and he let me take a few bites and it was delicious! And yes, we are the kind of monsters who like our meat cooked. This was medium-well.
After polishing off my pasta and saving some of Dave’s prime rib for later we opted for dessert. We got the creme brulee because its delicious and we’re fancy like that. OMG this stuff was good!!! Highly recommend.
Chess in Carol’s Cafe
After dinner we decided to go to Carol’s Cafe before heading to bed. Carol’s Cafe serves ice cream cones but we were stuffed at the moment so skipped that. They also have some games in the cafe and the cutest giant gingerbread house. We asked the girl working and she said it took them 4-5 weeks to make it.
We then proceeded to play a round of chess. This is my second time playing. I know, what rock have I been hiding under!?! Dave whooped me soundly.
Little America Suite
After our rousing game of chess it was off to our room. We were in a Preferred King Room. It was very roomy with the bed area and a large sitting area.
Waiting for us when we arrived was some room service. We had a fruit plate, cheese & crackers, and a dessert plate. How we managed to eat it after our giant dinner I am not sure. But we did do it.
How amazing is that cowboy hat chocolate!!! And the chocolates with Little America printed on them are filled with peanut butter.
As you can see, we thoroughly enjoyed every bite!
After demolishing our chocolate plate we settled down for the night. The bed was very plush, bouncy, and comfortable.
This was the part of our child free date night that I was looking forward to most. Uninterrupted sleep!
Alas, I am so used to waking up at 2:30am every night to take care of Jean-Luc that I did it unprompted. And Dave is so used to waking up at 6am to go to the gym that he did that too! Still, it was nice knowing that we didn’t have to wake up.
Little America Sunday Brunch
After our not-so-complete sleep we headed back to Hathaway’s Restaurant for their Sunday Brunch. They had a large assortment of breakfast and lunch foods to choose from. It was all very good. Our favorites were the poached egg and strawberry shortcake truffle.
Overall we had a very nice stay and some much needed alone time to reconnect as a couple.
