Well for Jims Birthday we headed up to the Jazz Game and had some great fun. A special thanks to Jims sister Amy for helping us out with Ridge and Aspyn so we could enjoy the game. The boys had a great time and we look forward to going every year.
Well after all the posting of sporting events we better shake things up a bit. Aspyn had a dance performance at the Rammette Review the other night, and she did great. She just loves to dance and we had to stay and watch all the other girls dance as well (Oh Joy)! I don't know why it is so much eaiser for me to sit at a wrestling meet all day than at a dance recital. But Aspyn had the time of her life. Good Job Aspyn. We love you!!!!
I have been looking forward to this weekend for a long time now and it was such a blast. I headed up to Meadow on Thurs evening and picked up Lisa and Monica. Then we traveled to Lehi where we meet Jen and Joanna. We loaded the buses and left for San Francisco Thurs night. My sister in-law planned this trip and was going to rent one bus. Well that bus filled in about 3 days so she went ahead and got another bus and filled it as well. So we had a total of 112 girls that took the trip with us. Our room held 6 people and Leann was going to go with our group, but it ended up being her daughters Jr. Prom so she was not able to attend. We missed you Leann. On our way up to catch the bus we got a phone call asking if we would mind if a girl joined our group. We were excited to have another person with us and she fit right in. She is from Lehi & it was really fun to have her join us. We stopped at Lake Tahoe for a quick potty break and I am excited to come back for a week with our family the end of May to spend some more time here. Then we continued on to San Francisco.
We stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge and it was so nice to get out and walk around for awhile. Our legs (well everyones except mine. Short legs are good for some things!) got so cramped. The bridge was really cool and everyone (but me) got some great pictures. I had left my camera for Jim because Easton was devastated I was missing his wrestling matches so I had to leave the camera for Jim to get some picture of the boys. So all the pictures I have on here were taken by my fellow friends who were nice enough to share with me. We left to bridge to go to our hotel, get showered, and off to go see Wicked. It was such a great show and we all really enjoyed it.
After a few quick hours of sleep we headed to Alcatraz first thing Saturday morning. Alcatraz was really interesting and I liked the audio tour, but I don't think I would pay to take my family there unless they were older. After the tour to Alcatraz we headed to Bubby Gumps for a great meal. I got the "shrimp heaven" and it was sooooooooo good. I had to send a picture to my husband so he could be jealous. After we got some food in our system it was time to shop......We had a great time shopping, visiting, and of course people watching. Around Christmas time I posted about the snow globes we received in memory of Jims mom (Norma who passed away shortly after Aspyn was born). She collected them and we decided we would add one to the collection each year in memory of her. I figured since I was on a trip with his family this would be a great time to buy a globe for our collection. So in memory of Norma and our girls trip to Wicked this is the one I ended up with.
Then we loaded the bus and faced the long ride back home. All in all it was a short but fun girls weekend and well needed. Thanks to Jeanna for putting this whole thing together and all my friends who made it that much more fun. We will probably be doing it again next year so if you were not able to go this year maybe next time you can come.
