So routine that we were going crazy. So Mike had the weekend off so we booked a trip for Park City on one of those deal sites and loaded our kids up for a fun weekend get away.
We started our trip off going to see the movie Epic.
We were going to go to an later afternoon showing but once Saturday morning came along everyone wanted to get on our way and get out of our house. So we went to the first morning showing.
Next stopped for some lunch at Burger King. :-)
Afterwards to ensure a smooth ride we went to a nearby park so everyone could get the last of their morning energy out.
Mike teaching Lily how to do the pole slide.
Hailey showing us her mad slide skills.
I think the park trip worked. :-) Lily and Ducati were fast asleep within minutes of driving.
Here's the girls inspecting bounce potential in the kids room. This bed passed!
But while on vacation we had some fun adventures:
Mason learned to rock climb.
Not really! :-) j/k climbing these rocks was a nice short cut to our room.
Anyways we went hiking on this beautiful trail right by the Olympic park. Absolutely beautiful!
But the coolest discovery for us was finding sea shells. When our kids asked us how sea shells can get on top of a mountain we thought about all the science answers we've heard. But we stuck with the most simplest and accurate answer we knew.... Noah!
So we went on a sea shell scavenger hunt. We ended up finding about 100 shells. That's so cool!
Nope...never mind he wasn't. :-)
Anyways we also went to the pool. Like everyday. All day. Each day. What else does one really need? Rest, relax, and hang out by the pool. That's all we wanted :-)
I normally won't post such a weird photo of myself. But it's funny so laugh away. My daughter loved to do canonballs but was too afraid to do them alone so I helped her out.
Oh... and the first time our kids used a hot tub. Oh. My. Goodness. They loved it!
I'm not sure who loved it more Hailey or Ducati.
But we also had a family movie night. Some redbox rental that I can't even remember the name of it since it was sooooo bad!
But we made smores for dessert.
Yeah we just popped off the fireplace gate and made our smores that way. Hey- we're on vacation so we wanted to do this the most laziest way we could. :-)
And even Hailey wanted a turn.
So after this we packed up as quick as we could and headed to McD's (kid's choice not mine) for lunch. Then headed home. Even though we were 45 minutes from home it was so nice to get out of our daily living routine and just have fun. This vacation is something we all desperately needed and we can't wait for our next one.
