Weekend in Park City

For my birthday weekend we went up to a relative's cabin above Park City for the weekend and met up with Lauren and Jess on Friday and most of Saturday, and then after they left we were joined by Robert's parents on Sunday.

These pictures are all chronologically backwards so....we'll go with it. ;)

Sunday night we all went out on the back porch to watch the sunset before we left to go back home. We decided it would be a good time to take some pictures of the kids with their grandparents...

...and a family picture of all of us.

Julia poses as the sun was setting with her cat, Snowbell (but recently known as Snowella).

Sunday was spent hanging out with Grandpa and Grandma Wheat. Here's some hanging out going on, on the front porch this time. It rained that day and was nice and cool, a welcome change from the heat back in the valley.

Grandma and Julia made me a birthday cake. Mom (Grandma Wheat) asked earlier what kind of cake I wanted and Julia overheard and said, "Strawberry!" But really I wanted chocolate, so I said, "Strawberry with chocolate?"

So they made a chocolate cake topped with strawberries.

It was delicious. I LOVE fruit with chocolate. Julia helped me out with blowing out the candles.

Saturday evening (we are going backwards, remember) we hung out outside a little outside with the kids.
 Julia did not want me to take her picture, so she was pouting and closing her eyes. The swing was all overgrown when we got there, but Robert took some clippers and chopped down all the branches so the kids could swing. They loved it, and I have to say, you would have a hard time finding a swing with a better view (see my Friday night sunset picture below)

Micah really loved going for a "walk," which was just walking up the driveway to the main dirt road and playing the bushes. He plopped down under this tree and said, "this Micah house." He is getting good at pretend play, he was saying under that little tree was his house. I let Camden play in the the dirt too.

Me with my Cam-man.

No picture, but also on Saturday Jess and Lauren volunteered to watch the kids for us while we went off and did something for an hour. Robert and I chose to go for an easy run. Except, we went down hill that became so steep we had to stop and walk, and then we had to go back up the hill (on another road) that was so steep we just walked. So it was more of a run/hike.

Friday night we had s'mores. Lauren brought a s'more recipe book that gave me the idea of adding strawberries to the s'mores. Remember I like fruit and chocolate? And for the s'mores I brought dark chocolate, so I had a dark chocolate strawberry s'more. Best s'more ever!

 Sunset on Friday night. Gorgeous view.

These two are from Lauren, everyone taking their sunset pictures.

and Lauren and Julia talking about words that start with certain letters.

Camden knows how to go up stairs, he is very quick at it. I remember when we came with Julia the first time to the cabin, she was about a month younger and didn't know how to climb stairs, but she loved this green pole. Camden went over to it for a minute, and then tried to go up the stairs.
