This past weekend, my brother Matt and I took our kids up to our parents’ timeshare condo in East Canyon. Robin and Elizabeth stayed at home to enjoy some rest and relaxation while Matt and each took four kids. Eight kids and two adults — we were outnumbered four to one. But we had a great time! We watched movies, played board games, went sledding, hiked, played on the playground, played video games and bought treats at the Country Store. We also took the kids down to reservoir and let them walk on the frozen lake (the ice was at least 12 inches thick, so it was safe.) I even got a chance to sneak away on Saturday afternoon to soak in the hot tub for half an hour. The kids enjoyed two nights of sleeping over with their cousins and Matt and I enjoyed some fun conversations and a couple of “guy movies” — Cloverfield and The Cave. No Jane Austen films for us! (The kids were in a separate part of the condo watching Spongebob Squarpants, Season One.)
Here are a few pictures for our time in East Canyon.
