Park City-April 2011

This past week we had the opportunity to go up to Park City and stay in a condo with Troy's family. We left on Wednesday April 13th and came home on Friday April 15th. Troy's mom has a timeshare up there so we stayed in a nice condo called the Sweetwater Condo's. Along with Troy's mom being there, we were joined by Troy's aunt Patti, her three kids: Nathan, Sarah and Steven, Troy's brother Brandon, his wife Brooke and thier three kids: Emma, Maddie and Miki.

We arrived at the condo around 11:30 and had some lunch and got settled and visited for a little bit. We decided to go over to the St. Regis Hotel in Deer Valley to ride the Funicular. The buses are free in Park City, so we all took that. It was Stella's first bus ride, as well as her first vacation in Park City! We had a lot of fun taking pictures of the kids and enjoying each other's company. The kids swimmed most of the time. The condo had a hot tub, heated pool and a sauna. The first day the kids swam for about 10 hours! It was insane! They all ended up with rashes from being in the chlorine for so long...but that didn't stop then, they were in there the next day!

On Wednesday we pretty much relaxed for most of the morning and afternoon. By mid afternoon we decided to go to Main Street and walk around. Of course, I forgot to put the battery in my camera for this, so I don't have any pictures of Main Street. We took the Trolley up and down a few times because Troy's mom has a hard time walking. Then we stopped at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and all the kids got caramel apples, Troy and I got chocolate covered pretzels...yum! After Main Street we headed back and had a yummy dinner of taco salad.

We had a great time up in Park City and hope to go again time with ALL of the Hargett's!!!

So Far in April...

We haven't seen Troy's son Nik in about a month due to his basketball games. He happened to have basketball on the weekends in March that we were supposed to have him. We finally got to see him the first weekend in April and we decided to go out as a family to Thanksgiving Point and have some yummy ice cream and frozen yogurt. They have the best raspberry frozen yogurt, I get that every time we go.

That same weekend was General Conference and it's tradition that I go to Layton and stay with Brittany's family. It was a lot of fun! We had our usual girls night and had quite a few girls there this time. We ate lots of yummy food and visited. After Priesthood was over, we played games. One of the games we played was called In A Pickle and it was about midnight while we were playing and Brittany and I got pretty creative with it and laughed a WHOLE lot!!! It was hilarious. Sunday we watched General Conference and Brittany and Spud made a delicious shredded pork burrito for everyone. Stella sure had a fun time playing with Taylor and Morgan :)

Stella had her first bath in the "big" bathtub this weekend! She didn't react with the water like I'd expected. But she sure had a fun time with the toys! I need to go to Walmart and pick up some more bath toys for her to play with. Stella does an exellent job with sitting up in the bath tub. I think eventually she will splash the water more.

This past Saturday was our ward activity and we had a little luau. For dinner they served slow smoked pork, rolls, salads, green beans and dessert. It was so good! For the entertainment they had Tahitian dancers, it was really awesome! Then they cleared the tables and did dancing, it was like we were in high school again! It was a lot of fun, probably one of the funnest ward activities since we've been in this ward.

Today I tried a new hairstyle for Stella: a mohawk!!! LOL I gave her a quick bath before heading over to my sisters for Sunday dinner and thought it'd be cute/funny to give her a mohawk...I think she looks pretty darn cute!

Here are some other random pics of Stella at 7mo old!! Enjoy :)
