Today we went bowling with Kathy, Jason's cousin, her husband Ty, and their three boys. It was so much fun to have somewhere to be during the Christmas Break. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the time off of work but it is so nice to have something planned each day to break things up a bit. We met at Sparetime Family Fun Center, a renovated bowling alley in Roy, at about noon and bowled a few games. The kids lost interest after one game but the adults kept trying to outdo each other with our skills. These are a few pictures of Ty and Kathy with their kids (Dominic, Carter, and Brice) as well as one candid of Jason with his pink ball that everyone was giving him a hard time for using. Tomorrow we are planning on heading down to Salt Lake City to shop a bit and return a few gifts that were the incorrect size. Then on Friday we are meeting up with Ty and Kathy again to go and see the new National Treasure movie with our families. It is so nice to have people to hang out with that live close by and have kids about the same age as ours and it is a bonus that we are actually related to them. We really dig hanging out with the Emerson's and it is never a dull moment when we do.
This is what I look like the entire time I ski, funny huh! Seriously though, Jason and I had a great time at the Canyons skiing and boarding. We both played hookie a Tuesday, I think it was the 11th, and headed up to Park City to use our Warren Miller passes for a day on the slopes. It was a beautiful day, though I prefer spring skiing because it is a bit warmer, and we had a wonderful time.
What a fun weekend! I didn't have to cook dinner once, that always makes a weekend a great one! Jason and I went on a date on Friday night to a place called Tepenyaki. It is a Japanese Steakhouse where they cook your dinner on a grill in front of you and entertain you all the while. After dinner we did a bit of shopping then went to see a movie, Dan in Real Life. We were worried it would be too dramatic but it was really funny. With Dane Cook and Steve Carroll I guess it is supposed to be funny though. The kids did pretty well with the sitter and that is always nice. It was so great to spend time alone together, that just doens't happen enough lately. On Saturday, after a day and a half of snowing, the kids went out to build a snowman ( he looks just like Jason with his spiky stick hair, too cool). I went shopping with my friend Erica and had a wonderful time, we even found some awesome deals. It wasn't as busy with shoppers as we had thought it would be, I guess the weather kept people home. Cassidy had two birthday parties, so she was gone from 1-8:30 at parties and playing with friends. Jason hung out with Zack for the afternoon then the three of us went to our favorite place for dinner, Cafe Rio. I think we should get a free meal whenever we go to that place because we go there so much the manager recognizes us and calls us by name when we come in. Hope everyone else had as good of a weekend as we did. I sent out Christmas cards, look at me go, so you should be getting them soon.
My family lives in Northern Utah and keep very busy. My husband works as a Computer Specialist and I am a fifth grade teacher. We have two children, Cassidy and Zack. Cassidy is eleven years old and in the sixth grade. She loves the Disney Channel, playing soccer, drawing pictures, and designing clothes. Zack is eight years old and in third grade. He enjoys superhereos, playing with friends, and riding his bike. We love living in Utah because of the beautiful weather and all there is to do both inside and out.
