After enjoying almost a whole week in Greer, we cleaned Grandpa's cabin top to bottom, did a ton of laundry, packed up the van and started our drive to Utah. By the time I got through Moab, I was getting restless and ready for a break. The kids were doing great! But me? I couldn't stand much longer. We stopped and swam and slept in style at the Super 8 on the side of the road. As I layed there in bed, I was kinda wishing that I would've just kept on going. Oh well!
We got to spend a few days at my older sisters house before heading over to Aspen Grove with them and some of Brett's cousins. My kids have been DREAMING of Aspen Grove and counting down the days until it started from the day we left TWO YEARS AGO. They think that Aspen Grove is the best place on earth. Literally! I love it, too! The only thing that could make it better is an improvement on the food. But hey...if you don't have to grocery shop or cook or do dishes for a whole week...that's amazing no matter what. I guess I shouldn't really complain! I've never had to cook for 400 people at a time.
But we knew it was going to be amazing and packed with fun when we walked in to registration to find some friends from church there, some distant cousins, a friend from high school, a patient of my husbands...so, so fun!
We spent the week swimming, hiking, eating ice cream, painting in the craft cabin, taking naps, watching movies, playing cards, laying out, reading books, playing basketball and volleyball, miniature golfing, laying in the beautiful grass, etc.
And this year, I didn't take as many pictures. 3 of the 6 days there, I didn't even take my camera out of the bag.
