We had the BEST time at Snowbird this weekend!
Snowbird is a special place to us because that is where Darin took me on our first date and where he proposed!  

We did the Alpine Slide, Climbing Wall, Bounce House, Bungee Trampoline, Aerial Tram and Peruvian Chairlift.
We also went for a hike that was a little intense for our small family, but we had fun!

I carried this boy on my shoulders the whole hike--a pretty good workout.
Andrew, however, took a nap on my shoulders for part of the hike.

Here is a little video of our time at Snowbird.
It is honestly probably the worst video I've ever made, but it will be a good memory for our family.

And note to self:  Taking video from below my face is NOT flattering!  HA!
I was trying to record Andrew while we went down the slide.
But it is mostly (unfortunately) of me from a very unflattering angle!

Neverland Princess Camp

Our cute Lindsay had Princess Camp this week.
This year she did a "Neverland" camp so she decided to be a fairy each day.
She had a lot of fun dancing, crafting, reading, and more with her cousins.

We LOVE Creative Arts Academy, and we LOVE LOVE LOVE Jana, Aubrey, and Erika!

Our favorite princesses!!  

And here is a little video that gives you a glimps of their "ball" at the end of the week

The "Fairy Forest" and More!

Darin and I took the kids to the cabin this weekend.  Last year Lindsay won a race and got a gift card for two free pizzas.  On our way to the cabin we ordered the pizzas.  When we got there we gave them the gift card and we still owed $35.  Apparently, the gift card was for two SLICES of pizza!  Then, when we got to the cabin and opened our “margarita pizza” we found an empty crust!  They had forgotten the toppings!  So, that wasn’t our most successful trip.

Luckily, the next day was MUCH better!  Aunt Vicki told us about a “Fairy Forest” only three miles from the cabin.  We LOVED it!  I couldn’t believe how much there was so see!  We could have stayed an entire day looking at everything!

After the fairy forest, we went to Kamas for Eli’s birthday party!  It was a lot of fun!  Olivia did such a great job with doing a fun carnival!  The kids especially loved riding the horse!

Arriving just before sunset!

I'll never get tired of this view!

Andrew "slept" in the "triangle room" for the first time.
He and I didn't get much sleep, so Darin let us sleep in a little longer and took the kids on a hike.

After their hike we headed to the "Fairy Forest."

Lindsay loved this little fairy home.

Andrew loved this little "dinosaur nest"

This little city was one of my favorites!

These are a few more of my favorites!

And, of course, we had to add our own little scene to the fairy forest!

If you ever go near Kamas, and would like to see the "Fairy Forest," 
Here are some directions:

Directions to the “Fairy Forest.”

1. Go to Kamas and take the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway (Hwy 150)
2.  Drive to mile marker 17 and park at the pullout
3.  Look to the forest, and you’ll see a path to the right.  Follow the path.
4.  You’ll come to a campground, just cut through the campground and continue on the path.
5. You’ll come to a ‘dry creek bed’ (that currently is not dry), carefully cross the creek and you’ll walk up a short hill.
6.  When you get to the top of the short hill, walk about 10 more feet, then turn right and you’ll be at the entrance of the forest! 

Good luck if you go!  It really was so fun!  And don’t forget to look for our little addition!
