A Little R & R

So, we decided to take a little mini vacay this weekend....and what a perfect weekend it was. We stayed at the Zermatt Resort and Spa in Midway (Thanks K & M). We didn't realize that the package we had was the "Romance" package. So, we were greeted with these chocolate covered strawberries and sparking apple cider! While Bryan was at the priesthood session of conference, we were pleasantly surprise to have turn down service where they showered our bed with rose petals. How romantic :) I felt like we were treated like royalty! I don't know how romantic it can actually be with a 5-month-old, but needless to say....she kept us well entertained. On our way home this morning, we drove from Midway to Cascade Springs and then down the Alpine Loop (possibly my most favorite drive). It was beautiful. I couldn't believe the contrast of the leaves against the snow on Timp. It was breathtaking!

This time of year is so beautiful! I am glad that you guys got to go to the Zermat-I hear you can get a killer package through the Pinnacle club. I love Kate's grave marker. Maybe we could stop by and see it on our way to St. George.

Hay Marcae, I am so happy to have found your blog. I have to say you are such a strong person to go threw everything you have. You have such a cute family. I was so sad when i heard about baby kate but I don't think she could have had better parents than you two. Its so good to see you and your family. I just love blogs it gives me a chance to see those i havn't seen in years. Keep up the good work. Carol Teeples(Wilcox)
