So I spent some of last week attending a family reunion and had a blast. We started off at the zoo which was made all the better by the fact that I was babysitting a 2 year old--some things should just be done with small children. After a day of animal sighting some of the family headed over to do some ice blocking while I attended a baby shower. Then later that evening we all reconvened for a rousing game of Win, Lose, or Draw that I really enjoyed even if everyone thought the wolf I drew looked like a bug--I told you I didn't draw.
The next day (after a serious game of family fear factor that I rather wisely chose not to participate in--people ended up with real chicken feet in their mouths!) we head up to the Heber Valley camp do to do some "camping" (camping has to be put into quotes when you are sleeping in cabins (even if they are cabins without mattresses) and when there are bathrooms with running water and refrigerators).
Apart from the fun of hanging out with family that I don't often see, I thought one of the real highlights was the food that we ate. Everyone really did a nice job--which sadly means that my hope of a weekend away from good food turning into a weekend of weight loss didn't occur.
Now that it is all over I realize how quickly it all went by and wish we had more time (more time and a real mattress to sleep on--Sorry, I'm a wuss and I freely admit that).
Thanks to Vicki for all the work that went into putting all of this together.
