We're back from spending a lovely weekend in Park City with our kids. I won't lie and say it was a relaxing vacation, because between the swimming, hiking, shopping, game playing and the ridiculous amount of eating that took place, we kept pretty busy. However, it was nice to not worry about work, laundry, extracurricular activities or cleaning house for a few days.
We loved walking down historic Main Street and visiting many of the artistic shops along the way. At one point a couple from New York stopped to marvel over our children and to "bless" us for having so many. Joel was walking with our four children and our friends' five, and I think this couple thought they all belonged to us. Blessings upon us would certainly be in order if this were indeed the case.
While all nine of the kids were well-behaved, I thought Joel was crazy when he decided we should all visit a few of the art galleries. But the kids, especially our artistic seven-year-old loved seeing all of the inspiring artwork. Hopefully she continues to follow in the footsteps of her artistic daddy and grandma.
We also enjoyed an easy hike on a trail just outside of the city and couldn't help but take a few photos of this beautiful white barn. It's definitely an iconic landmark in the area and we saw it as the subject of quite a few photographs and paintings as we strolled along Main Street.
But, I'm sure you didn't visit this blog just to get a recap of our weekend, so I will go ahead and announce the winners of our giveaway. We used Random.org to help us select the three lucky numbers: #95 — Lucia, #23 — Alisa and #273 — Moira. Congratulations ladies! We hope you enjoy your fabric and birds. We'll be sending John over at Quilt Dad another fat quarter pack to give away as well to help celebrate his second year blogging anniversary and thank him for helping spread the word of our new blog. It's so rewarding to be involved in this blogging community!
