We got back from the retreat Saturday evening and I had to fly back to Austin Sunday morning. MaKell, my parents, Tyler, Mandolyn and Mary went to Park City for some shopping and dinner. After, we went back to my parents house and met up with Kelly and the McKee boys. They are so cute and full of energy! I played the Wii with Mandolyn (bowling) and she was merciless on me. Then we played tennis. After that we all played Loaded Questions (a very fun game, I highly recommend it!). We were up until 1am laughing and having a great time! I wanted to thank Jackie, Amanda and Laura for watching my girls for me while Dan was at work so I could be with family in Utah.
I recently had the opportunity to go to Altamont, UT for a scrapbooking retreat with my mom, sisters and sister-in-law (thank you so much mom!) Once a year my mom puts together a girls retreat with all the sisters and this year she brought us all together for this scrapbooking retreat. We got to go up a night earlier than the rest of the group so we had a chance to be alone and have silly sister time, do pedicures (thanks mom) and laugh and of course eat delicious food. My sister Lori and her friend Lindsey put on this scrapbooking retreat twice a year at this amazing gigantic cabin. I am not much of a scrapbooker but the classes they taught were so fun. We got lots of prizes and gifts. Three of my cousins were able to come and it was so fun to see them again and be with them. We got up from our tables of hours of scrapbooking and did the Macarana, the Electric Slide and some other dances to have a little fun but mostly move! We played card games, sat in the hot tub and went for walks hoping the cows wouldn't charge us. It was such a great time to laugh, talk and have a blast with my family. Thank you so much for all of this mom, it was amazing!
