The first day of our Stay-Cation we all ventured up to Park City to spend the day playing on the Alpine Slide, Alpine Coaster, Zip Line and all the other fun things there. We played really hard...and had a great day. When we first got there we were disappointed to hear that both the zip line and Alpine Coaster were closed. We all hoped that by the end of the day they would be opened. This was the first time being there for many of the family...I went there the first year I moved to Utah so it has been awhile.
It was really fun...you seriously fly or "zip" down the mountain. So glad I got to do it because that was the only time I did all day...the lines got really long.
After the Zip Line we played around seriously it was a great day...after eating lunch and taking a break to check into our hotel (we stayed one night in a hotel) and taking the kids swimming we headed back for more fun. When we got back we heard that the Alpine Coaster was opened. So of course we ran up there. Okay, I was a bit stressed out about this cause all of my children were going on it. You sit in these...(again photo from Google)
you have a little seat belt on...you can either ride single or double and you are hanging on for dear life. While in line I told Craig he had to take Liberty cause I was so nervous I didn't want her to feed off my nerves. So I went alone. You get all settled into your cart thing and you actually ride this up the mountain instead of the chair lift. It winds up the moutain and it is so pretty. Before I took off up the mountain the worker said to me...keep your seat belt on and don't brake or stop for anything and keep the stick (which controls your speed) pinned. The more I think about it I think he knew that I was nervous...because he told Craig something totally different. To keep it pinned means you are FLYING at top speed. I was scared for my life! I was whipping around these turns and bumps and seriously I was going so fast. Even Craig said that he (and he loves going fast) had to use his brakes around some of the turns. I got of shaking! Craig just laughed when I told him that I never broke and kept my stick pinned. I could have loosened up on the stick to go slower! HELLO! I was just listening to the worker kid, thanks alot! I made it down and wouldn't go on it again. Caleb, Zach and Liberty got off yelling "That was AWESOME!" They kept going on it over and over. So note to self...you don't have to listen so literally to the worker kid ever again! Our day was really fun we all got fried! But I think it was a great way to start our Stay-Cation. Check out the photos...
One last family photo just before leaving the resort. We all got so burnt but it was so much fun. The kids were asking when we could go back as we left. I guess that means they loved it.
So that sums up our first day...after leaving the resort we went out to pizza...very long story we walked and after ordering I was left with 3 teenagers, a 10 year old, a 6 year old and Brit...while the others went to get the cars. Caleb went to sprinkle some red pepper flakes on his pizza and the entire jar spilt on one piece...I wish I would have thought to take a photo cause we were all laughing...Lib was sitting right next to him and she ended up with a massive bloody
nose ...which almost made others at the table throw up cause they were grossed out. We laughed and laughed. Lots of other funny things happened that night but I will spare you the details, let's just say we'll keep them in the family. Great times. Day Two coming soon.
