everyone has an aunt over the age of 100, 6
grandma's show off their sledding skills 6
grandpa's teach their arizona grandchild the art of tossing snowballs (even if their groin becomes the main target), 6 and
the bucket of 1970's toys is bottomless .6
and since i was way too relaxed with my photo documenting, i decided that reenacting the highlights of the trip with fisher price people seemed to be the most accurate portrayal of the weekend. enjoy!
here we are. enjoying an afternoon on the merry-go-round.
and here's how each day ended. brando and brooks happily snuggled together, ade nursing for hours on end and me. me with my big ol' butt hanging off the bed but a smile on my face because the boys are asleep at the same time & i'm wearing my cowboy hat in bed. yee haw
we loved hanging out with the newly byu employed little bro and fam. and it was nothing shy of amazing because they know the best places to get coconut curry thai soup and all you can eat french toast. see, utah does have culture.
and then there were my in laws. what a competitive bunch of creatures. throwing out trhyme answers, baking some hardcore potato casseroles and laughing at anything and everything jason did. where did brandon come from?
introducing brooks to his first taste of winter sports was a treat.
until he realized that falling off the sled into the snow was all part of the fun. now he loves the cold as much as his mom.
but let us not neglect the best part of being with family. with grandma on hand to babysit, i Finally got my much needed 15 minutes of alone time. yes. taking a poop by myself- daily- was one of the highlights of the trip. jealous?
and although irrelevant, i had to include a picture of the "black mans" brooks insisted on taking a nap together during the photo shoot. woot woot.
