We are having an awesome time with our super bloggy pals up in Park City, Utah. We had a long trip out here, flying through Houston and a poor man had a medical emergency on our first flight but meeting up with everyone has been great fun. It didn't take long for all the little girls to warm up to one another and in no time they were running through the house, jumping on beds and running around playing together like best friends. How fun it is to have all of us back together but this time with ALL of our children. The first night electronics were a big hit. Here's Lauren playing with Ro & Ree's IPad.
Coming home from Barcelona back in April, Maisie's Leapster died and she was really at the point of outgrowing it so instead of buying her another one, I surprised her on the flight out to Utah with a Nintendo DSi and she and Eliza just couldn't get enough of it.
Our Utah 2010 red couch picture. Left to right, youngest to oldest: Hannah, Solli, Tate, Lauren, Eliza, Maisie, Ree & Ro. They've all grown so much since our last one in September 2007.
Our We tried to re-create the Mama's-to-be photo from the first time we met but little ones kept sneaking in but that's just the way things are now. Donna, Lisa, Catherine (where Julie was in the original), me, Tiffany & M3.
Later in the afternoon we headed over to Park City Mountain Resort. I love all the hand-holding that happened. This is Maisie and Eliza holding hands and Solli in the stroller.
Maisie and I riding the lift up to the top of the Alpine Slide. I have to say that I don't like heights especially being suspended on a wire so the trip up had me in a bit of a panic but thankfully I wasn't alone in that as M3 was no calmer than I. The little girls though, they were up for the adventure and being on the lift was just good fun!
My camera didn't want to turn on right away so here's just part of our run down the Alpine Slide. M3 and Ro are on the track to our right.
After everyone who wanted to had their turn on the Alpine slide, a few of us brave Mamas and little ones headed over to the Alpine Coaster for a go at that. Catherine rode with Ro
I recorded our entire ride and it was great fun. As soon as we got off both Maisie and I were ready to go again. We were told that if I pushed the handles forward all the way (pull back for braking) that we would get up to about 30mph and going around the bends we would feel about 3Gs so just to see, I pushed the handles forward the entire trip down because why bother breaking when we could just go for it and have so much fun!! Awesome fun and Maisie and I want to go back again!!
All the little girls had fun playing cooking games for a while but then it was time for some surgery. First Lisa subjected herself to multiple surgeries and here's M3 having a C-section...yeah I don't get it either but everyone had great fun.
Tomorrow we are getting together with many of the local bloggy gals for a bbq and we can't wait!! Time to sleep though, eight children can totally wear out all us Mamas!!
