Time to go home!

Well, it looks like our Utah adventure is coming to a close. We're getting ready to pack up and head home. I'm not looking forward to the six hour drive. It's always a lot more fun and exciting to drive TO your vacation destination than home from it, isn't it?

We've really had such an amazing vacation! This trip was kind of an afterthought and not something that we put a lot of planning into, so I think we all underestimated how much FUN it was going to be!!

The place we've been staying is a time share resort right at the base of the ski slopes in Park City. This place is in extremely high demand in the winter since you can walk right out the back door and hop on the ski lift, but this is the off season. Right now the ski slopes are green and pretty and they have all sorts of fun family activities at the base of the hill. Yesterday we took the kids miniture golfing and that was so fun! The boys had never been before and Matthew got a hole in one on his very first shot!

The resort offers all sorts of daily activities for their guests. They have a list of all the fun things you can do here each day. They have bingo and Guitar Hero tournaments and family movies and kids crafts and all sorts of things. Yesterday while Shawn took the kids swimming I signed up to make a freshwater pearl necklace and that was really fun! I really think we could have stayed here for a week without ever leaving the property and still had a ball!

We're not signing up for a time share here, but I do think we're going to find a way to come back. I'm already looking into renting someone's time share for a week next spring!! I don't think this is the end of our Park City adventures!

But for now the time has come to zip up the suitcases and pack up the car. Tomorrow we're back to school, back to work and back to real life. I'm glad we got the opportunity to do this though, spending the past several days as a family discovering all sorts of new adventures has been an experience we'll never forget!
