Thanksgiving - Park City

We thought it would be fun for our family to get away by ourselves for a couple of days.  Just hang out together.  I am so glad we did.  We had so much fun.

Friday night I took a really hard fall down Wynn and Emily's wooden stairs (note to self:  do not walk down wooden stairs in tights (no shoes)  It is very slippery!)  I managed to land on my back and then my tailbone.  Thanks to some ice, a Priesthood blessing and some muscle relaxers I could at least move the next morning but I was moving pretty slow all weekend.

Logan was able to get us a great deal on a hotel room up at Park City so Saturday morning we headed up there.

We did a little Christmas shopping at the outlet mall and then went and checked into our room.  We got ready to have our family photo taken.  I wanted a photo in the snow so Park City was the perfect spot.  Our wonderful photographer (and Cali's voice teacher) met us up there.  She found the perfect spot and I LOVED how they turned out - I will post some later.

After that we went up to the Montage, a beautiful resort in Deer Valley where Logan has held meetings.  They have a fun s'more event each evening.  Yum - they had homemade cinnamon and pumpkin spice marshmallows!!

It was the perfect to warm up after our photo shoot - hot chocolate and s'mores!

I love hanging out with these guys!!!!

After that we went to dinner and back to the hotel room where we played some games and enjoyed the hot tub.  The kids really liked the spa robes!

Sunday morning Clark headed to the airport to pick up Jessica who had gone home for Thanksgiving and then we all went to church in Lindon to hear Ryan give his homecoming talk - he did amazing.  Tricia then hosted a big family dinner afterwards.  Yum!!

Monday we went down to BYU and met the girls for lunch at the MOA.  Tessa had a ton of money on her meal card after not eating in the Cannon Center all week so she treated.  Clark came over to join us and grab a sandwich too.  Emily and Addi were with us and then they drove us up to Salt Lake to catch our plane home.

We had a great week and can't wait for them all to be home again soon for Christmas!!!
