Utah 1










I have to catch up in my posts.  We're doing too many fun things and I am getting too far behind. I need some pictures from my sis for a lot of the activities, but I thought I better start...

The Atk Family Reunion in Utah was busy, busy, busy.  Some highlights:

+  100 birthday party for my Grandma who flew in for the occasion from D.C.  (Her real b-day        is Oct. 30) 
+Family pictures
+Lunch with Lisa--longtime friend that used to live with us!
+Dinner w/ Gardners.  Man, I miss C-ville friends!
+Extended Atk Family Reunion
+Rock Band, Sing Star, Dance Dance Revolution
+Rafting on the Provo River
+Granny's Drive In Milkshakes
+Park City--Alpine Slide, Coaster and Zip Wire
+Tour of BYU (Man, that has changed!  May I please go to college again?)
+S. went w/ my bro, Steve, and Bro-in-law to grand opening of Soccer Stadium
+Tour of Conference Center in SLC by my Aunt and Uncle
+VA reunion party (Nay checking out her future prospects)!!!
+Seeing my beautiful roommate, Tracie!!  Staying at her parent's house in Park City (Umm, Michael Jordan's anyone?)
+Dinner with Jaime (so sad she moved from VA)
+Hanging with Gma and Gpa Bruford and their amazing house
+ATVing

Drawbacks from the trip:
+Getting my stinking first ticket in HEBER!  
+About 1/2 the family getting sick w/ a 24-hour virus

Family vacations are so awesome! They are always great because you get to be together - including having your husband around 24/7! Love it when that happens! Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm super sad I missed the VA reunion.

Man, that must have been some exhausting/exhilarating vacation. You guys are so awesome. Who stays with a family for one night, and then leaves them with an awesome present. Decs did come down with that little bug, but it was minor. He just upchucked in his bed three nights in a row, but was otherwise great:) I figure, the more the merrier. The more he catches now, the less he'll have when he's in school. I love ya, Jules. Thanks for thinking of my crazy family while you were in Utah.
