A fun get away with the Weeks family!

Tate and Daddy sporting their never-before-seen spiky hairdo...(they are both long overdue for hair cuts).

We had a super fun and relaxing vacation right outside of Zions Park this past week. It was so nice to get away and spend time with family! Two of Andy's brothers have recently purchased a share of a gorgeous cabin that they get to use at certain times during the year. Fortunately for us, they were kind enough to invite the whole family up for four precious days (...if only Jeff and Trina could have made it, than we would have been complete).

The resort has so much to offer: heated infinity pools with slides and hot tubs, frisbee golf course, zip lines, trampolines, beach volleyball court, basketball and tennis courts, horseback riding, scenic hiking trails, a nice fire pit right on the edge of a mountain (which manages to make the best hot dogs and smores), a near by golf course, a playground for the kids, they even have massages there, and much MORE!

Andy had a blast playing with his brothers...he always does! I know they got good use out of the frisbee golf course and laser tag guns that someone brought up. I like that about Andy and his brothers...they always have so much fun doing stuff together just like the old days. Tate just loves being around his gran-mama and gran-papa and cousins/aunts & uncles! He really bonded with everyone...I think he has all their names down now. =) He was perfect on the drive up and back and slept like a rock each night which was nice...he did not kick his picky eater habit though. =( I had such a nice relaxing time too. Unfortunately, I didn't feel very good half the time (which was a bummer) but I am just glad my doctor gave us permission to go being this far along in the pregnancy. I loved playing games with the girls when I got a chance and taught them how to play my new favorite game, Pounce.

I just couldn't resist the opportunity for some cute photos on the "Rhino", which they use to get everywhere and is always packed full of these cutie cousins. =)

Jen - you gotta email me the pic of my little fam -- it might make the wall downstairs for our 2008 family picture. We are all wishing we were still on vacation! Hope you are feeling better.
