This year we had our sisters retreat in my backyard: Deer Valley! The first couple of years we had it at my aunt's beach house in So. CA. And it is right on the beach, you can't beat it. Last year we had in Austin TX. Which is where my aunt lives. It has been fun to change it up and it was really nice not to have to get a plane ticket anywhere.
This is my mom's sister, Deborah. Our very favorite hostess with the mostess. She also owns the cabin in Deer Valley. And when I say cabin- it is like nothing you have ever seen before. My Nana insisted on honoring her with a framed picture from our 2003 sisters trip at the beach house.
My mom - also known as where's waldo as of last week, and three of her sisters. Cinny, Annie and Deborah.
Cousins: Heather, Carrie, then me. We were all born just a couple months from each other. And my one and only sister that made it this trip- Jenny!! And lets not forget my cute aunt Whitney.
The sisters putting on quite the show for us.
Jenny and I hit up the bar at noon. And what do you know, we were the only ones there!
Hanging out with my uncle Mike, one of the two males who got to come up for a day. You can kind of see my Grandpa Pook reading his paper in the back.
Me and Heather. She was amazing and cooked huge delicious meals for us all every night.
Jenny and I out in the snow
we made some crafts
Aunt Annie the cutest little snow bunny ever
You get to ski right out the door!
Almost all of us. I went home just a couple hours after this. I want to thank all my sweet gal pals for the most wonderful time. I loved every moment of our tear shedding, movie watching, gallery hopping, Park city, Main street shopping, puzzle doing, pigging out at all hours, laugh attacks, learning that amazing crazy FUN game that I still laugh about to myself, doing NOTHING- but everything, going for walks, our very own yoga master, and hot tub lounging (which I can't believe I missed. I even packed TWO bathing suits. It just sounded so nice to sit in hot bubbly water and watch the snow fall). I just loved every single moment of it all, and I love you all so much. So thank you again. I am counting down the days till the next one, which just happens to be Nov. 2009! Lucky me. Can't come some enough! Love you xoxo
