One last summer adventure

Last weekend we took our little family to Park City for the weekend to do some school shopping, go on the Alpine Slide, and have a little end-of-summer celebration! We found a great 3 bedroom condo with a loft and we were off! :)


One of the things in our Summer bucket list was to have a campout with S'mores. We hadn't gotten around to doing it yet, so we camped out in the living room and put together some yummy smores...the kids LOVED them! If you don't want to roast your marshmallows a little marshmallow fluff works just as well ;)







I love how easy kids are to please! If you ask my kids what their favorite things were about our trip they would say: the TV's in the bedrooms, getting to have sugary cereal for breakfast, and riding these little cars at the outlets!




It was a little tricky to take all the kids on the Alpine Slide because someone always had to stay with Avrie. We just decided to have Paul take Kendall, the I took Skylar, then Paul went again with Britton. It took forever...but was so worth it! The kids loved it and we decided to make it an annual tradition.



This was the beautfiul view from the ski lift....if only I wasn't completely terrified of heights I probably would have enjoyed it a little bit more ;)




To top off our long day at the Alpine Slide we got some refreshing snowcones. Look at those little darlings.




We came home on Sunday but since we knew we wouldn't be home in time to go to our church we decided to take a detour to Temple Square and see some of our favorite sights there.


I love this picture. You can't see the kids faces but they were SO excited to see the Christus statue. There is such a special feeling there, it is one of my favorite places to take my chidren.




We ended the afternoon by simply enjoying the beautiful flowers and wonderful spirit at Temple Square.






It was a great way to celebrate a wonderful summer. Skylar keeps begging to go back to Park City and Britton keeps asking for the "big slide", it was a great trip! :)
