Adventure Camp

The Canyons resort is primarily a winter ski resort, but during the summer they have an adventure camp for kiddos.  I attended a few days while in Park City.  In addition to plenty of play time with friends, we rode the gondolas to the top of the mountain, hiked and went swimming every afternoon.

Hogle Zoo 2011

During our trip to Park City, we ventured into Salt Lake City to visit the zoo.  We were happy to discover they were having a dinosaur event.  There were dinosaurs all over the grounds - life-sized, noise-making, eye-blinking dinosaurs!  My favorite animal was the giraffe.  Mom's favorites were the mom and baby elephants.

Canyons Concert

One of our favorite things to do in Park City is go to the outdoor concerts at the The
Canyons.  We ride the gondola to the top of the mountain, lay out our blanket, have a picnic - all while enjoying the music and atmosphere.  On this night, Austin's own Alejandro Escovedo was playing there!

Market Days

We love the farmer's market in Park City - the raspberries are fresh, juicy and oh so sweet (and, no, I won't eat them!).   We had to leave when the "moose" for The Canyons came to say hello.  He scared the bejeebers out of me!

Living Like Locals

When we vacation in Park City, we really make ourselves at home.  We play with friends we see every summer and always find out what's happening around town.   We especially love the library and book store activities for kiddos.

Shopping Cart

Why can't the Whole Foods in Austin have these perfectly sized carts??

Monkey Mountain

Since our last visit to Park City, there is a new indoor play area called Monkey Mountain.  Mommy and Daddy could sit and read the paper, watch t.v. while I played with new friends.  It's what we like to call a win-win!

Ahh...Park City

After an easy flight, followed by a quick drive, we arrived at one of our favorite spots - Park City.  It's easy to be happy in Park City with the cooler weather and beautiful scenery.  We are looking forward to a great vacation!

Princess Dance Party

As a finale to my summer dance class, we had a princess party and were allowed to invite a friend.  I invited Abbie, and we donned our finest regalia.  After the performance, Daddy presented us both with a bouquet of flowers.  What a fun time!

Busy Town

My current love is Richard Scarry's Busytown.  Love, Love, Love it!

Violet's Visit

My cousin Violet and her mom Vanessa visited us from Portland earlier this year, and Violet returned all on her own for a week this summer.  All of these photos are of us in the pool, mainly because we never got out of the pool the whole week!
