Girl's Getaway!

Last weekend we had a fun girl's getaway. Melanie wanted to do something with all the girls before Natalie has her baby and gets tied down. So we loaded up and headed to Yuma without husbands or kids! Gabe brought his kids to the valley and stayed at his mom's so we had the house to ourselves. We left on Friday afternoon and came home Sunday afternoon. Everyone was in charge of bringing a project to work on and we crafted the time away. We also managed to fit in a Saturday morning work-out, shopping, eating out, going to the movies, and hot tubbing! We also came home with some cute projects. Here's a look:

Kneaders is a staple in Utah but they also have one in Yuma so we hit it up for some yummy salads and sandwiches!

Went to the movie Country Strong and I've been overdosing on the soundtrack ever since!

The workout babes!

Now for some of our projects:
Charm bracelets we put together from a kit.
We also made candy bracelets to take home to the kids but I didn't get a pic of those.

Cute valentines baskets we dolled up with ribbon.

Photo clips we made from a large clothespin.

Cute holders made with twine and empty cans.

Adorable flutter capes they made for their girls

Didn't quite finish this cute wood project. We still need to modge podge family pictures on the empty blocks. And we also wanted to do a banner out of chipboard and scrapbook paper but didn't quite have enough time to get to that. Oh well, next time!
All in all a fun and relaxing weekend. The daddy's had diaper duty and did a great job. Thanks guys, we couldn't have done it without ya! We definitely need to make this a monthly, (well maybe annual or semi-anual) event. : )
