Saturday night we settled in to our rooms, the teen cousins (and Uncle Will) went to see The Fray in concert and the rest of us visited and got familiar with Aspen Grove. Sunday we had church and family time. Dad gave each family a wonderful book of rememberances of he and Mom. It was really wonderful. That evening there was a lovely fireside with two of President Monson's kids who answered questions from the audience. It was really great and as they both testified of the divine calling of the Prophet and spoke about the wonderful father and man he is, I was really touched.
Monday the kids went off with their age groups in the morning while the parents went to a seminar on personality styles and families. They followed it up with an intense game of paintball...Oregon & Utah Henstroms against everyone else. Doug, Nicky, Chris & David triumphed over the Oregon-Utah team but it was fun, although both Chris and Paul were pretty bruised.
The afternoon was spent doing family games and activities at the Aspen Follies. It was really well organized and a lot of fun. We finished up the evening with some wonderful stories from Grandpa about he and grandma courting. Alex, Cecilee & I also got in a game of disc golf and mini golf.
Today we went to more talks on family communication and then had a go at badmiton. A bunch of the kids got to try out the climbing wall as well. This evening we went to "frontier night" and enjoyed snow cones, hatchet throwing, face painting, air soft gun shooting and just having a great time together.
We'll see how tomorrow goes with hikes planned as well as a game of dodgeball Adults v. Teens. The most wonderful thing about being in this beautiful environment is being with the family.
