Hannah Jane Turns 9 in Sundance

We spent last weekend in a beautiful cabin in Sundance with my mom for Hannah Jane's 9th birthday.  We did some hiking, played games, took a spill down the Alpine slide in Park City, and lounged around the fire while kids made up adventures to pursue in the woods.

My mom hadn't seen us for 2 years!  So it was almost like getting to know each other all over again. She spent some alone time with each of the kids and got to know what their little personalities are big on these days.  She and I got some catch up time in the car.  It was such a beautiful time of year to be there with family.

Can't believe my baby girl is 9!  She said she woke up feeling new.  She's carried herself a little taller, spent a few second actually combing her hair and choosing clothes that match since she's been 9.  Haha!  She claims that messy hair and dirty clothes were for 8 and now that she's 9, she has important things to say and she wants to make sure that she looks like the kind of girl that needs listening to.  Oh, and that 9 is going to be the most significant Baha'i year of her life until she turns 19, and maybe that's why she woke up feeling new.  I love that kid so much it hurts, and I got a lot of snuggle time to listen to her views on the world while we were in Sundance.  She has so much wisdom in that tiny little body, just bursting to get out.  I'm so lucky to get to be her mom.  So lucky.

Here's the highlight reel from our glorious weekend!
