Peterson Family Reunion!

My family had the first ever family reunion this year! My brother's family from Washington was able to come down for a while, so we planned a trip to Park City! We went out to eat at a restaurant called Bandits on the historic mainstreet. With the whole Pete clan together, things can get pretty crazy.. I appologize for all the pictures, but they were all too cute. Plus, I have to show off my favorite nieces and nephews ever.

Kyle had a full tummy,and was just hangin out as a real cowboy! He's very opinionated, but can be really cute when he wants to be ...........Keep smiling, buddy. I had to take a picture with this gorgeous girl, Celeste! She wanted her hair to be pulled back like mine, and she loved it.

I was the annoying photographer that just wanted to take pictures of everyone! We haven't been together on a trip for way too long, so I iwanted to remember how much fun we had. Maria and Sam are on the left,and Aaron and Nicole on the right. Love, the shirt, Aaron. It was too funny!

Grace also wanted her hair like mine so we pulled it back and straightened it for her, oh, and the lovely makeup job. She had to have on some mascara and lipstick. She is such a cute girl. I'm glad we got to spend so much time together with Aaron's family. It's been too long since we've done something fun. It was about time. We took the free troley ride to the restaurant. The kids just absolutely loved the ride on the trolley. I had to take pictures because they had so much fun. It was different for them, and there were no seat belts to be strapped in with. Yeah, for the trolley!

It seems like the only time we get our picture taken together is when we take it ourselves. Oh, well! I think it turned out better than some of the others. Plus, Jeff is such a babe, who wouldn't want to look at him all time? I'm the luckiest girl around.

My Dad tripped on the sidewalk just before we left for dinner, and he banged up his arm. You can see the band-aid on his elbow. It was raining and slippery, and he just went down. He thinks he broke his rib, and it hurt for quite awhile after. I'm glad he's doing well now. He's getting older now and his muscles aren't doing as well as they should, so he has a hard time getting around sometimes.

More trolley fun with Jeff and Jenny and Sean, and Sam and Rosie in the background. I love my family. They are great!

Aaron took care of Jared's boy, Spencer, on the trolley ride. This look just sums up Spencer to the T. He is quiet and quick, and can get into trouble quickly, but then he looks at you with his big, brown eyes, and he looks so innocent. Looks can be deceiving. Especially with a 3 year old!

We took part of our family on a walk up main street. We can't go to park city without going to the chocolate factory, right? They had to have a treat, so Maria was nice enough to buy them one. As you can tell, the treats were really enjoyed. Yummy!!!!!!!!! I'll post more pictures later, so stay tuned!

Anniversary Weekend!

I've never claimed to be a graceful person,and here's the proof! For the big 5th anniversary we decided to spend a lovely weekend in Park City. Jeff was so excited to mountain bike down the mountain, but as you can see, this is how it turned out. Our short, but very fun-filled bike ride ended up with me on a mountain with a gash in my knee bleeding all over the place. Jeff had to carry both bikes back up the mountain while I tried to hold a sock on my gushing wound. It was awkward, but we made it to the top. The lift operater had to get special permission to let us ride the lift back down. He let us know that an EMT would meet us at the bottom to look at my knee.............lucky me!

Here is us going on the forever long ride down, while everyone was looking at us funny and talking about us even though we could still hear what they were saying as they rode past us. YES, those are tears on my face. It hurt, I was embarrassed, and I am a girl. That gives me all the right in the world to let them out sometimes, right? I think so! We spent a lot of money to rent the bikes, purchase all day ski lift passes just to end up riding them for 5 minutes. I had to go to the Urgent Care center and get 4 stitches. WOW, what ta fun anniversary weekend, right? IDON"T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The best part about it was I was with the man I love!! Even though I was in pain ,and ruined Jeff's bike ride, the few from the top was gorgeous! I'm just a Klutz, and it's all good! Love you,babe!
