30 Year Olds Hit Heber City

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I have a group of friends from High School that tries to get together every couple of months to catch up with each other. We also try to go an one overnighter each year in the autumn season. We have gone to Park City the other years, but this year, our friend Marilee got back from living in Chicago and we were able to use their family cabin up by Heber City. This year, we knew we had to go because we all turned 30 years old and we wanted to celebrate together so that we could have fun like we did when we were teenagers. Well... you wouldn't believe it if there weren't photos to prove it, but we did it. We lived like we were teenagers last friday, the 19th of October. We missed those friends who couldn't come because of things that came up. So, let me know, friends, if you are sad you missed it or glad you missed it once you see the photos. :)

First, we hit the outlets in Park City on our way up to the cabin. It was a lot of fun shopping together. It would have been a lot more fun if we all had the funds to be able to buy lots of stuff... next year we will have to save up for it. :)

After we were done at the outlets, we went to dinner at Ruby Tuesdays right by the outlets, then we headed for the cabin. Here is the cabin...
Once we got to the cabin, we got into our pajamas, got out the bags of candy that were in the cupboards, and we started talking. We told of how we met our husbands... again (we have all known before, but it is fun to be reminded of the romance of dating again). Then we talked about people we knew in high school and what they are up to.

THEN... dun dun dun... the rest of the evening was spent proving that we can have just as much fun as we did before we were 30! :)
Before Marilee left home, her husband asked if she needed the camera to take photos of our pillow fight... so since that is a stereotypical event that happens at girls' sleepovers, we staged one and took photos...




Once we were done with our 'pillow fight'... we decided to try to show our enthusiasm by seeing how high we could do the 'Toyota jump'. (Sorry Marilee, I had to put the last one in just because my hair looked so ridiculous) We had a great time trying these...











Next we wanted to see how our dancing skills have improved in the last 10 years, so...
Then as if one jumping contest wasn't enough, we continued once we went downstairs...
Finally, it was time to settle down, try to take some photos that showed that we weren't crazy... but all we got were a couple of really tired looking photos...
So... the next morning before leaving the cabin, we took another photo and it does show that we aren't crazy. (I hope it worked for us) We had so much fun together and we hope next year we can get more of you up there with us. You know who you are. :)
Rori, Marilee, Kerianne, Leslie

You're a bit crazy... but, we knew that before these pic's were released :). I love the action photos. I hope that when I turn 30 that I can jump as high as you. Looks like a good group of friends.

Hey Les...sorry. My internet just quit on me and I couldn't get it going again. Once it started up again, you were gone!!
Look at you girls. You look like high school girls. Not much has changed, has it?!?!
I love it! I want to do this with my friends. I still keep in touch with my good friends from high school too. I'm glad you got to do this and I'm glad you have good friends.
Love ya.

Looks like you had a ton of fun. What a cool idea. Maybe something to look forward to in a couple of years with my girlfriends!

Wow, you gals partied it up. That is so funny that you did this, this weekend. My friends all went to San Francisco this weekend to do the same sort of thing. I bet they didn't stage a pillow fight though. Oh, I wasn't there to document it either, even if there was.
That is neat that you girls still get together.
