Old Places.. New Family

Growing up my family and about 5 other families would go to Brianhead Utah every March for a huge Ski trip. It is one of my favorite memories growing up. This year, after eight years of not going, my family decided to go again. It was just our family and the Clawsons and all the new comer's! It was weird to see everyone all grown up starting their own families.. All the little ones loved the snow! Marsha and my mom, as always, brought way to much food so Chase and I were lucky and got to bring the left over food back with us! We don't have to go grocery shopping for months now :) Thanks mom and Marsha! Chase and I have not skied for a long time so I was kind of timid to go but we caught on quick! The first day of snowboarding Chase was pretty sore and just sat in a Ice bath for 30 min. I could not believe he could do that it was crazy! Chelcie and I could hear him all the way downstairs it was pretty funny. But by the second day I would have to say Chase and I were pros on the slopes! Johnny and my dad went all day with out even a lunch break! We played games every night, had some funny conversations which I'm sure the boys hated while they all watched March Madness, and ate the best meals ever! It was such a beautiful weekend and so good to be with everyone. I wish we lived closer but hopefully we will keep this tradition going for years to come!

Everyone tired after a day of skiing and snowboarding.. Chase is dead asleep under the blanket

Haws and the girls playing Phase Ten

This was Joshua and Addi's favorite play spot. They would jump out and try to scare you. KoKo and I called it the serial killer room.. it was kind of a freaky room

I miss you guys already! I really missed the all the different noises Chase makes the last night after you guys had left.
Where did you get those pics??? And why don't I have them?
Good times... good times!
