Maxwell Family Reunion 2012

I took a break from blogging. It was really, really nice. But I already feel like there are a dozen things that have gone undocumented and my red personality is getting a little . . . anxious?

We spent a long weekend in Park City for Mike's family reunion. We rode the Alpine Slide, the Coaster—Mike and I doubled up and went fast, fast, fast!—Ada was spoiled and went on a two rides on the merry-go-round and topped the day off with an ice cream cone. We spent a bit of time in the pool. Mike golfed. I shopped. Ada napped in a haphazard fort in our studio condo. It was (as it always is) a blast to be with cousins, aunts and uncles, and share meals and memories.

I didn't expect to be so enamored with watching Ada interact with her cousins. They held her hand and called over to play with them. They wrestled on Grandma and Grandpa's bed and fed each other snacks. Some of my favorite memories are watching them together. Truth be told, they are only getting cuter the more they play together. Makes me excited for my sis' baby to arrive in December.

The three of us came to the reunion a bit under the weather—Ada sported a double ear-infection which she handled as best she could. All things considered, she was a champ. The rest and fresh mountain air did all of us good. And there's nothing so rejuvenating as spending time with the ones you love most.

Pool time!

Does Ada have more teeth? bet you didn't sleep good with bilateral ear infections.
