Neu Family Reunion 2013: Part II - Tea Party and Surprise Baby Shower

Friday, August 16, 2013

During the Family reunion we had a Tea Party in honor of Mom Neu. Well, at least that was what I was told prior to arriving. When I got there I was told it was also a baby shower for me. :) I was totally surprised! It was such a good time. My sister in-laws really went all out.

Then some of my nieces delighted us with a little fashion show and a musical number. It was awesome.

Then I opened some gifts. I got some really cute baby clothes, an amazing quilt and matching bag, books, and some adorable hand mad burp cloths.

We then spent the remainder of the time asking Mom Neu questions about her courtship with Dad Neu.

It was a lovely party!

Neu Family Reunion 2013: Part I - Hotel and Cafe Rio!

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Last month Jeff and I traveld out to Utah for the Neu Family Reunion! This reunion was extra special because it was also Jeff's parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely party at the end of the reunion in Salt Lake City. I have pictures from the event and the little family photo-shoot before, which I will be sharing next week. I took so many pictures that I have to figure out which ones to put up. :)

It was a nice relaxing week in Utah. Jeff and I stayed at the Stein Erikson Lodge in Park City which was wonderful because it was so much cooler up there. For the first three days of the week we spent the mornings lounging by the pool. It was absolutely lovely. I spent hours in the pool. I was so sad when it was time to get out. We really enjoyed staying in Park City.

Cafe Rio! So, many of you know my obsession with Cafe Rio. Whenever I'm within a reasonable driving distance from one I simply insist on going. Jeff and I went three times while in Utah. The first time was at 9:55pm driving from the airport to the hotel. Yeah, I'm that committed. I feel that three times in five days is not quite enough, but I'm still grateful that I got to go as much as I did. Jeff is such a great sport for giving in to my Cafe Rio desires. Oh, Cafe Rio! How I love you!
