Mini Vacation

My sister and her husband from Canada flew into Utah this past week/weekend to visit their boys in Logan and to come down and see their parents (they are both from here so both set of parent(s) live in the same town).

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful sister in law that took the kids all day Friday and a loving Mom that watched them all day Saturday and A TERRIFIC husband that watched them Friday night, took them to my Mom's Saturday and later picked them up so that I could go spend some time in Utah.....kid-free!

Friday was our 'shopping' day. We hit a few stores then we went to the Rock House. It was so much fun!




All day it was weird that I didn't have to worry about naps or meals or 'restrictions' because of the little ones!

After a few hours of climbing it was dinner time then off to the hotel hot tub! (with Kohl's in between!)

Saturday started bright and early as we all made our way to Beaver mountain for a FULL day of skiing/snowboarding. I ski, haven't tried the snowboarding scene out, and don't know if I ever will....

My camera was a little big to just stick in my pocket and not worry about falling and breaking it, so I don't have any pictures. My sister does.....and I am hoping she will post them so I can steal them. Gina?!?!?!?

The weekend was exactly what I needed. A little break.
I did come home to a sick little one though. Poor Parker has another ear infection. But he's not too horrible. All he wants to do is cuddle with me.....not really complaining. They grow up so fast that them sitting still in my lap went by way too fast, so this is a pleasant surprise! :)

That little break away from the kids gave me the patience I needed to keep going. I was starting to wear a little thin.....
