The Canyons resort throws off their fireworks on the 3rd of July every year, and it’s getting bigger and bigger each year. So we’re lucky to have our friends the DeFord’s living so close we can avoid the traffic and parking headaches. They invited a bunch of us over for dinner before the concert, and then back to their house to watch the show.
We try to get Tory out 2 to 3 times a week skiing – at least once during the week and the weekends. Saturdays have been the best this winter when he gets to ski with his bud Evan.
Every year The Canyons holds an Easter egg hunt on the mountain, and every year we miss it by just a few minutes. Luckily the kids are still too small to really care (I hope), so like I said last year: We’ll make it next year!
The Epsteins did make it on time, and the news was that it lasted all of 5 minutes and that too many parents found too many of the eggs. Tory and Evan got to romp around together though, and that makes it all worth while. Tegan needs to get off my back and start walking more… you’ll see more action shots of her when she does.
Grandma Pat and her sister always had to share their birthday parties, and the advice is – even though there’s less than a week between Tory and Tegan’s birthdays – do separate parties. We’ll definitely take that advice, but for the next few years while they could really care less, we’ll do them together. And this year it was a pool party!!
I was swimming most of the time as well, so the camera didn’t get taken out until it was nearly too late, but there’s a few to see in there. Click the picture above for more.
Here’s an old video recorded by Mel. Tory and Evan have fun popping bubble wrap.
This is over a month late now, but Piper had her 3rd birthday party at Black Diamond Gymnastics in Park City. There was running and jumping and swinging and sliding and flipping and bouncing. And some other stuff.
Oh, and some cupcakes – chocolate, if that brown schmeere on Tory’s shirt is any indication.
It’s been a couple of weeks now (Judging from my timeliness, they must have been very busy weeks?) but Grandpa and Grandma Moe came to visit, along with Tracy, Marcus, and Jacob. They were able to rent the condo directly above us, which allowed us to be together quite a bit without being directly on top of one another, (ba-dump-dump) in the figurative way. There was hiking and walks, dinners in and a little wine, a concert at Deer Valley and a 5am stake out. Click on the above photo, there’s a few more shots where that came from.
Friday night found us at the Summit County fair, along with some Park City and Heber City friends. There were rides, games, snow cones, and corn dogs. Kari and I even got to ride the Zipper (still my favorite carney ride). This being our first Summit Co fair, I was struck by the fact that carney folk are the same everywhere. As usual, click above for more fair fun.
