A couple weeks ago we drove out to Utah. My sister Sasha had a baby boy in June and he was being blessed in church, and my dad was having a birthday party the day before.
Dad's party was up at Sundance Resort, which is special to Eric and I because Eric used to teach ski lessons there in college, and we liked to go up there for walks because it's so beautiful. I've always dreamed of having a cabin up there. We were excited to take the kids up there to see it.
The party was great, and after a couple games everyone went off to explore the meandering paths and walks.
It was great to get to see my parents, step-mother Lisa, the rest of my family and Lisa's family. My siblings and I grew up down the street from Lisa's nieces and nephews, and we spent lots of time hanging out together back then. It was so fun to meet Sasha's baby, a beautiful little boy who weighed less than 7 pounds! I don't know what to do with a baby that size; mine are much bigger when they're born :)
On Sunday we went to church with Sasha and James. Baby Ezra was blessed and afterward Sasha and James threw an amazing barbeque. After that we headed home, ending a weekend that was way too short!
