This morning we got up at 4:30AM so we could get up to Park City for our Hot Air Balloon ride. Now, when we were in Park City we had this scheduled and so we woke up at 5:30 that morning just to be told that we couldn't go up because there was too much wind. Last week we were scheduled again and woke up at 4:30 and got all ready and then called up there and were told the very same thing as before. We were beginning to think we never get to do this Hot Air Balloon ride, which by the way, we had already paid for. So, this morning we tried it again. The third time must be a charm because we actually got to go up this morning. They said there was barely enough wind this time. Crazy!
We had a good time and the view was spectacular. Our "pilot" was a very seasoned balloon pilot and had lots of stories to tell. The morning was beautiful and we even saw a deer running through the brush. It was GREAT! Thanks to my hubby for planning the ride!

Brooklyn is growing so fast and we have so much fun together when she comes to visit Grandma. I love having her every Wednesday and we have so much fun together.
There are two cute little neighbor boys that I have taught in preschool and they are always coming over to visit me. Since I have been watching Brooklyn they now come over every day to see Brooklyn. Instead wanting to see me now, as soon as I come to the door they ask me if Brooklyn is here. When they see Krista's car in the driveway they run over and say where's Brooklyn. It is so cute! She has 2 boyfriends already. They love to come in and play with her and they can get her so excited and laughing so hard.
Here is a picture of them having ice cream on Sunday.

We went to Park City for the week to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We had a great time and it was so nice to just have a close get away. We went on the Alpine Slide, the Coaster, and the Zip Line and had a fun time just enjoying the day. I got a little sun-burned and totally ruined my spray on tan that was supposed to even up this farmers tan I always have. Too bad I still have the farmers tan. Oh well!
We went horseback riding at Deer Valley, hiking at Mirror Lake with Brooklyn, shopping at the outlets with Krista and Brooklyn, sailing on the Jordanelle Reservoir, and enjoyed the "Disco Drippers" and watched fireworks with all the kids. Now it is back to reality but we had a great vacation, close to home, but far enough to forget the stresses of normal day life.
