Weekend Recap

Wow, it's been awhile since I've done just a little weekend recap.  Perhaps our weekends haven't been exciting, or more than likely I just haven't felt like sitting down to my computer come evening.  But tonight, I've mustered up some energy.  My head cold finally seems to be letting up, and dare I say my morning sickness is gone!  This weekend was a completely typically March weekend in Utah.  Not quite Spring, yet definitely not winter anymore.  I'm not sure whether we should be using our heat or our air conditioning, and everyone managed a slight sunburn.  We're throwing on tank tops and the next day our ski coats.  The changing of the seasons is crazy here, but with 70+ degree temps for the week long forecast, I think we are rolling into some much warmer days.  Hopefully they stay!

After hosting my book club (everyone should read this, thanks to Erin for the rec) and staying up far too late on Friday night, I really just wanted to sleep the weekend away.  But the gorgeous weather had me begging Conor to make some plans before breakfast had even been served.  Saturday we checked out a new to us hike, super close to our house.  I'm always amazed to hear about more new adventures right at our fingertips.  At times, I feel like we have exhausted all kid friendly hikes near us, so this new trek was a little delight.  We joined our neighbors for the excursion.  It was a simple 2.3 mile loop hike to a beautiful suspension bridge.  Views of the valley were endless and facing west, so I've decided that we just have to come back and do this hike at sunset!  It felt good to have that fresh air and get our bodies moving.  Everyone needs to get in hiking & camping shape stat!  My belly is already way bigger than I imagined, and I am feeling it.  Everything just changes earlier this time.  My hips have been sore lately, so I suppose it's already time I pull out my support belt for long walks, hikes, runs, etc.







Sunday was reserved for sleeping in and resting up for an afternoon of skiing!  No new snow has fallen recently, but the weather was too good to pass up.  Spring skiing is here!  Finn was his happiest & most excited self this trip up.  Apparently he is a fair weather skier, also in it for the snacks & post ski lounging.  Relaxing in that sunshine after 3 runs, I have never wanted a drink more this entire pregnancy.  Is it really even Spring skiing if you don't finish with a beer?!  Liam continues to amaze me; he's now weaving in & out of trees and trying to find little "jumps" (bumps).  It was our best day of skiing as an entire family!  My snow pants still manage to button, however I can't fasten my boots on my own.  It's the little victories.  Hopefully we have one more month of the slopes being open, because I'm not quite ready to retire for the year.






In just a few days my family is coming to visit!!!  Nana & Pops as well as my brother's family (three kids!).  It will be a full house!  They are all staying 'til the following Monday, so it's a mini vacation together.  Gonzaga snagged a number one seed in the NCAA tourney, and they'll be playing their first two rounds in Salt Lake City, so we're all hoping to get tickets to their games.  Surely there will be plenty of food, drinks, & some really loud talkers.  I always manage to lose my voice after a week with my family.  Can't wait!

Happy Monday!

  3. Wow what a fun weekend! And while I haven't been skiing in ages, I fondly remember coming out to Utah for my 8th birthday for some spring skiing. I still remember seeing people ski in tank tops and thought it was a hilarious sight, especially coming from the east coast!

  5. I am so impressed with all that activity you are up to! Good for you! You look wonderful, and I know you are enjoying these special days with your boys. The skiing looked amazing. I'd love to go sometime and see if we could get Ben on skis. Also, that bridge was gorgeous. What a fun new spot to have uncovered!

  8. Oh, your bump!! Oh my gosh, so cute. Your weather seems similar to ours, 60-70s and sunshine and then possibly snow storm the next day, ha! Keeps it interesting. If I skied, I'd totally buddy with Finn - fair weather and snacks all the way!! :)

  9. What a fun weekend! I'm still amazed that your boys can hike for that long...and even more, they can ski!! I haven't tried skiing in the longest, but one day I want Little Lewie to learn. You look AMAZING; yes, I guess bending over to put on boots can be a little difficult now :) Enjoy your week-long, family visit.
