This is going to be quick and dirty because I have taken 1500 other photos this summer that still need a bit of attention. :)
We took a two week excursion to Washington at the beginning of this summer and it started off on Father's Day weekend with a stay up in Midway, UT.
Ben had a director's retreat for work that was held up at the Zermatt Resort in Midway. Friday he was in meetings all day, then they held a dinner that spouses were invited to and then the company extended a two-night stay to all the directors. Awesome!
So I dropped the boys off with Kaye and Riley (who were gracious enough to take the boys for the night) on my way up to meet Ben for dinner Friday night.
I have no picture to document it, but the dinner was delicious (of course Ben and I hadn't even stopped talking about the last dinner we had up there 3 years ago with smoked salmon...).
We left the resort early the next morning - Saturday - to come back to Provo to pick up the boys from Grandma Kaye's house.
Naturally, we made our Saturday morning trek to Provo Bakery for doughnuts while Logan raved about how much fun he'd had with Grandma Kaye and Grandpa Riley.
Then we went back home and packed everything that we'd need for the next two weeks into the van and headed back up to the Zermatt.
We spent the afternoon and evening at the resort with the boys and all stayed there together the second night.
Walking around the grounds - SO beautiful. Of course the boys were checking out the fish here.
There were goats along the back line of the property and you can tell they get frequent attention back there. They all knew right where to hang out to get loved and poked.
Riding the carousel there
Setting up the boys' beds. Logan loved his little nook in the corner.
Dinner at one of the restaurants in the resort. Lincoln loves lemons but this time he was making great faces.
Of course Logan had to take his turn at throwing coins in the fountain.
At the front of the resort
Ben and I played a fast-ish and only slightly-interrupted game of big checkers where I almost won. Haha.
The boys loved playing with the huge chess pieces.
Right about now Lincoln tripped and fell and bit right through his tongue. After a quick consult with Ben's cousin who's a doctor we decided he'd be fine and nothing could be done.
Me and Lo at dinner
And we swam too. Twice. It's a really fun pool that has a tunnel so you can swim to the outdoor pool, and a great hot tub too. You can see the outdoor pool behind the boys.
This kid LOVES the water. Or more like he loves drinking the water. And he loves his floaty toy here, but he spent most of the summer swimming in his life jacket because it's just easier.
This was the last time we swam and was right before the boys went to bed. The hot tub was more like bath water so the boys got in with us. Lincoln LOVED it. He was so wiped out by this point that he was just floating on his back forever. He was floating right in front of Ben, but Ben wasn't even holding him because Linc was so still and relaxed.
Caoursel round #2. Who knows why Logan chose the bore... weirdo.
Despite Logan's waking up sick in the middle of the night, we had so much fun with the boys up there. It was fabulous having a little family vacation and I'm so glad there was enough to keep the boys entertained at the resort and so grateful that Heritage was generous enough to offer that for the families this year.
We left early the next morning (Sunday - Father's Day) straight from the resort to go up to Spokane. That's two other future posts though.
