Ponderosa Cabin Resort was amazing.  It was our Christmas gift from Grandma and Grandpa Lyman.  It couldn't have been more fun!  The kids had a blast!  This was our first family picture as a family of 6! 

 Oh my goodness!  Coy is one handsome boy!  Jeremy Redd and Coy had a little joke between them about his shirt.  Coy LOVES yellow and when I saw this shirt I couldn't pass it up.  Needless to say he wants to wear it.  Jeremy Redd started calling him "Racer George."  Coy digs it and now he added "Racer" to his last name.  So when you ask him his name he says, "McCoy Racer." Which would be super cool if he didn't drop the Lyman.  :)  So we nicknamed Jeremy Redd - "Vacay J."  Jeremy Redd was super happy being on this trip and even taught us a card trick!  Who knew what a few naps could do to him?!! 

 Livvy insisted we spend some time together after she went all day with her dad and others to Zion's.  They did a little hike down to some swimming holes in a river.  It was 102 degrees so I opted out with the baby and hung back and relaxed in the fantastic cabin.  So Livvy took me on a walk.  We sang songs together, but as she took me deeper into the woods behind the cabin I was getting a little nervous.  It was getting dark and I knew there were animals back there and probably a bear.  I think my jumpiness started making Liv a little nervous because before we knew it we both bolted back to the cabin and decided to do our walk in the morning.  We both agreed the paw prints we saw belonged to a bear.

Awww...Love this little Aleyah.  She kept me company a lot of the time.  She is super funny and Coy and Alleyah were best little play buddies.  It was so cute to watch them play.  She loved baby Mason too.  I finally caught a semi-smile of Mason on Camera.  His first smile he gave to Alyson in Cedar Hills the week before.  I am a little jealous about that!!

At Zion, the kids had a lot of fun swimming.  When I was looking at the pictures I made Jeremy promise to take, I looked at the one where the boys were sliding down the rock.  I asked if it hurt?!  He said, YEAH!  The boys hated it.  It made me laugh and laugh.  Cute boys!!

KIDS CAMP!!!  This is what my kids were most excited about (I wasn't too sad about it!).  The Resort took the kids all day.  We dropped them off at 9 and picked them up at 5.  They got to zip line, bunji tramp jump, crafts, lunch, swim, ride horses, play in the playroom, and snack time! They had soo much fun!!!  I talked to Livvy a lot about being a good sister and taking care of Cohen to make sure he was having fun and being happy.  She did great!  She made sure he had lots of water and was always checking on him.  Made me super happy!

It had to come...Sunday...The day we had to leave...  Jeremy eased the blow by making coconut french toast with Bananas foster and strawberries.  We had so much fun and thank Grandma and Grandpa for an awesome vacation.
