Lucky Us!!! We got to spend a whole week in my favorite staycation location. And what better time than the 4th of July? Fires Shmires...we will have fun even with a firework ban!!!
We started with a day of Outlet Mall bargain shopping
Next day was an early wake up call
So that we could go watch Luke take 2nd place in his UGJC Tournament in Evanston, WY!
On to the Holiday! We spent the morning at the Main Street parade, complete with Utah Ski & Snowboarding team floats, bar floats, and my personal favorite... a massive doggie in a classic truck.
We had big plans of going back to the city park for the always fun live concerts and beer tent, but alas, we couldn't pull ourselves away from the draw of the pool and BBQ area. Mom and Dad Reece made the drive up for the day!
The next 3 days were pretty consumed by the Jake & Zac playing in the Firecracker Tournament. Jake's team took 6th out of 40 teams, and Zac's team took 1st out of 10 teams.
Watched the Australian and US Olympic Teams practice in the pool
Rode the ski lift to the top of the Giant Slalom
Don't know why it's taken us so long to discover this little Utah gem. Tons to do on a lazy Sunday summer afternoon. Thanks Groupon for making it affordable ;-)
We returned home suntanned, relaxed, lungs full of clean air due to the 'above the smoke' elevation, and ready to tackle the world. Well... almost!
