it was a great weekend up in park city. i've kind of had a strong dislike for the winter this year…but a few days in a snow filled wonderland cured our winter blues.
my parents and whitney and ryan came up from california, so my whole family was together…we had 10 adults and 9 kids in one cabin. it was beyond chaos, but more fun packed into 4 days than i ever could have imagined.
if gracie was awake, she was playing…and by playing i mean running, laughing, jumping and screaming. the kids loved sledding and playing in the snow…we weren't surprised to see gracie wanting to fly down the hill faster and faster each time. maddie held court with her two baby cousins, we may have suggested she call oliver and millie her little minions…we were pretty happy she ran with it. she caught on quickly that if she could keep her self up later than the other kids that grammie and poppa would let her come out of her room to get extra attention. she tried doing that tonight at home and was disappointed she didn't get the same results.
my sisters, and their husband's, stayed up way too late chatting and playing games. i was dragging in the mornings and slipped in my almost three week diet coke free lifestyle. i'm jumping back on board…tomorrow.
we feel so blessed to really love our family…does that sound bad? there is a whole lot of them, so it's a good thing that we do.
