Spring Break

2 Fridays ago (the 14th) we flew to Salt Lake. From there we drove to Rexburg Idaho to spend some time with Trent's Grandma and Grandpa P. They live on and operate and dairy farm. We had a great time with them and Blake and Andrea and Ashlyn (she has some great pics from the trip on her blog) who spent the whole week with us.

On Sunday we drove back to Heber, Utah and up the mountain to my sister's in-law's huge, beautiful cabin where we got to spend five days with Blake, Andrea, Ashlyn, and my sister Emily and Jonah stayed most of the time, her husband Brandon stayed one night and Trent's other grandparents, the S's stayed one night. It was great!

Trent and Blake went snowboarding Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. They went to 3 different resorts. Snow Basin, Park City, and the Canyons. They loved them all, but Trent said Park City was his favorite. 2 of those days they were joined by Trent's sister Kim and her family and Trent's parents.

As for the kids and I, Monday we stayed at the cabin. I didn't attempt to take them all out in the snow. Henry wasn't thrilled with the cold and I wasn't ready to tackle all the kids outdoors without Trent. Tuesday Andrea and I took the kids to the Park City outlet shops. I would have liked to go in a few more of them, but there is only so much you can do with 4 kids tagging along. It was fun though. Then we spent the afternoon at Emily's house.

Wednesday I spent most of the morning getting our roomed cleared out and ready for the grandparents and trying to get kids ready and napped. By the time I got down the mountain (yes I even took the snow chains off myself) it was later than I hoped. I went to Provo for a short hour to see my friend Michelle and her boys before heading up to Park City to meet all of Trent's family for dinner.

I'll do another post to cover the rest of the week.

Love the picture of Jo & Henry and the one of the cabin AND Charlotte in her hats. So glad you could visit. Jonah misses his cousins already.
