Park City

A couple weeks back Blake and I got to go out of town for a ski trip to Park City, Utah.  The skiing was great.  The company was even better.  The memories are the best.
We skied a couple of days.  Deer Valley was our favorite.  The weather was amazing that day, which always helps, especially for us girls.  Our guys could ski in anything.  Us girls prefer those sunny, beautiful days where you can see every snow capped mountain for as far as the eyes can see.  :)

We didn't just ski.  :)  We had some fun play days too.
One favorite of mine was going to Sundance!  I loved it!!  I have always heard about it, but had never been.  It was adorable!!  So much smaller than I had envisioned.  So quaint.  So peaceful.  Love it.
At Sundance.
We loved our dinner at Chimayo.  YUM!!
There were some hilarious memories of course.  How could there not be with these guys.  :)
 The last evening we stopped in Vegas...oh yeah did I mention we drove to Park City?  So, we decided to split the trip up on the way home and stop in Vegas.  Turned out to be a great decision.  

  Thank you to our amazing parents, my cousin Chelsey, and Auntie Blair for all pitching in to take such wonderful care of our little ones.  It was such a blessing to get out of town with my husband and to come home refreshed.  Loved it!

Aubrey's Sweet Shoppe

Aubrey Rose turned FOUR on St. Patrick's Day.  It feels like just the other day we celebrated her turning ONE, TWO, and THREE.  Every birthday so far has been green, green everywhere!  Well, this year she had her own thoughts.  I knew it wouldn't last forever that we could choose whatever we wanted.  I just didn't know things would change already at 4.  :)   It might have been almost a year ago, that Aubrey told us, "Mommy, I don't want a green party. I want a PINK party."   (Oh, and her hand was for sure on her hip when she said this.)  So, for almost a year she has been telling me about her pink party.  Well, it finally came.  Pink, pink, everywhere.  And of course, we had to throw touches of green in since it was St. Patrick's Day.
 The invitation read..."Pink is the new green!"
Welcome to Aubrey's Sweet Shoppe!

We did have a couple of touches of green too.  :)
At Aubrey's Sweet Shoppe, the kids got to decorate a cookie with green or pink frosting.

I am still laughing at this little girl because at the end of the party, we were cleaning up the house and Aubrey started talking about her next birthday party.  HA!!  Already???  She told us she decided she wanted next years party to be green.  Oh my goodness.  This girl cracks me up.
 In the midst of cleaning, we needed to take a couple of breaks too.  ;)
What a fun day.  I wish we live it over again.  :)  Happy Birthday little sunshine.
