Lovely

This weekend was just that. Lovely.

Every year on Conference Saturday, the girls leave the kids at home with the dads and go to Park City for some serious shopping, eating, and slap happy laughing. (Don't judge us for doing this over conference weekend....it is the only way Heather and Jody can get here without missing church.)


It is so much fun to all be together! I cannot tell you how blessed I feel that I have such beautiful strong women to look up to. We get along really well and constantly make each other laugh. We were able to eat at our favorite restaurant in Park City, Baja Cantina, and do some serious summer shopping.


This year Jody ended up having to work, so Heather brought Brielle and Breezy with us. It was great to have Breje' with us, because really she is getting old enough to really appreciate how great a Girls Day Out is. And Brielle didn't make a peep all day. She was an angel!


Travis stayed home with the girls, and they loved every second of it! He is such a great dad and I think they may be disappointed tomorrow when it's back to boring old mom. Thanks Trav! I love you.


Today we went to my parents house to watch conference...or try to watch conference with 5 kids running around. During the break Travis, Cody, and Amy took the kids to the park to fly kites with them. The wind died down so they didn't really get them to fly, but the kids loved being outside.


I didn't get to go with them because I was busy doing this...


Chopping off Breje's Hair. Isn't it cute! She has been begging me to cut it for quite a while and mom and dad finally caved in. Breje', you just get prettier and prettier!


Shopping-Monopoly-Turkey Dinner-Relaxed Parents-Refreshed kids. This makes for a Lovely weekend indeed.

So fun. I am really looking forward to shopping for summer clothes because I will NOT be pregnant! Yea! This will be a great summer :). Those pictures turned out darling- do you print them that way? I'll have to check it out. Favor- do you have your hair tools at home? My hair needs to be thinned out on one side- think it would be possible?

Shopping in park city is the best. It looks like your weekend was fun. I love Breje's hair. She is beautiful.

Sounds delightful. We need to plan an us day in Park City, Layton, wherever!
I love Breje's hair. I can believe how grown up and beautiful she is. It's so weird that her and Kaleb are the same age!
The picture of Trav and the girls is priceless. You need to blow that up and hang it in the play room!
Peace Out.
I'm thinking tomorrow is a good day to cut your hair. I'll be calling you. Hey maybe we can attempt 5 kids and do lunch?

Hayley worked some magic again! Breje's hair is darling. She is so grown up. I bet she was thrilled. So jealous of your Baja Cantina trip. East coast Mexican SUCKS! How fun a girl bonding day!

Melissa said...

How fun! Chris and I talked about going to Park City for the weekend, but we only made it to Layton (that works). Look at you getting all fancy with picnik, you're gonna have to start teaching classes :O)

Brittney said...

HOW FUN! Yep, you have an awesome family. I am so grateful for all our memories together and that I can call the Johnson's family. Sometimes I ache to be closer to family, but my time will come. At least I can say I am happy down here with my cute little family. Someday we'll be up there!

Amanda said...

I won't judge you if you invite me next time :) :) :)
