UEA Wonderfulls Weekend

We don't have any of our own pictures to support the event (that is, even if we did, we wouldn't be posting for another seven or so months) but we made the ever-faithful journey to break off this five-day schoolbreak to party hard at "The Canyons", which is located in Park City, UT. On Thursday and Friday, our family got in the car alongside the Neeleman family (cousins) and went down to stay at the hotels. They got a hotel located right in the front and we got a condo further back. The stay was well worth it. Except being halfway through your drive and screaming, "Mom, did you bring the camera?" turned into a tiny hysteria. Otherwise, who cares?? But while sitting there you suddenly see an AF Football shirt go by and you end up screaming your other cousins name. We saw Dallin and Cami in Park City!! It was really funny, since Audrey had called me the night before the party with her, and I ended missing the wonderful event :( but seeing Dallin and Cami and their friends was pretty funny.

Some of the events from our trip resulted in: the arcade (I personally HATE arcades...just a matter of money, time, and scary people walking around with serious looks on their faces -- blech -- it makes me sick.) But when you walk in and see your cousins AGAIN you laugh. Well, I do.

Also, we went swimming in the pool, which needs some cleaning according to Katie and I. We kept on finding peices of hair strewn about, along with nasty yellow colored bubbles in the hot tub and dead wasps. SICK!!! But it was relaxing and short-lived, but really fun and we talked about life, school, etc. The basics.

Stunting in the hallways of the hotel is just so much fun. Hallways in hotels are MEANT for running up and down. I personally love the carpet texture, quick feet....OH, I miss the days when you could run freely through and about. But two kids from Ethan and and Jon's class were there -- NOT twins, either -- those pranksters went knocking and running. I stopped them. I hate getting in trouble for stupid pranks. UGGHH!!!
So, Katie and I, with the loving support of her sister, Rachel, did stunting in the hallways. Since the ceiling isn't too low, we only went to first floor (not even that) but cradled her anyway. She is so light!!!!! Thanks, Neeleman family, for inviting us to such a party!!!

But we're not done. Afterwards, a little devasted from such a short day, we hit the Childrens Museum in downton SLC. I saw a girl from my school there and my parents saw some guy with his kids and this lady and her people come and go and then come again. While my mom took the little kids to the Childrens Museum, my dad and brother and I hopped across the street to the Planetarium. I haven't been there since I was about seven!!! It was cool to "re-see" the place and we were pretty involved. We got to wander for free. Afterwards, we hit the cafe place and went straight to shopping. Well, my mom and I did. We went to Hollister, Abercrombie, and Aeropostale. We got "some" things that are going to be Christmas gifts or maybe my birthday gifts. You never know what you'll get!

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to comment and enjoy the rest of your UEA weekend!
