Day #2 of the YueYang Sisters Reunion!
Day #2 --
All activites are AT the resort AND many are for the entire group to do things together!
We started the day with a photo shoot.
This is important for the moms :) The girls are not overly excited about this BUT we love to document this amazing time.
We had a great photographer who already has many of the photos posted on her blog -- go and take a look. She did an AMAZING job!
And this is my photo NOT the photographers -- hers are MUCH better ;)
A short time later the girls were able to learn/do a Zumba class. My Darling was actually not very thrilled about this -- but said she would try it because it was a group activity (Elizabeth would NOT try it). Well, My Darling LOVED it. BaJabs was excited about the class AND loved it!
Just learning the steps -- BaJabs had a smile the WHOLE time!
My Darling having some fun!
BaJabs -- I love seeing this natural happiness in her!
We had a wonderful lunch together.
The afternoon there were many activities to choose from. We decided to try the Alpine Slide -- with mom just watching as I did not feel the best. My Darling was very nervous but decided to try. The lift to the top of the mountain/hill was the hardest for her. It was a great time of bonding for her and daddy :)
Can you tell she's nervous???
Starting up the mountain.
She LOVED it!!!
Finishing the run.
BaJabs was so excited. Her and daddy had a GREAT time. She is up to trying anything. This one was a hit for her.
Look at her excitement!
The long ride UP!
Getting to the bottom.
Elizabeth --- this girl was PUMPED! She wanted to go as fast as possible AND drive! She screamed the entire way down -- because she LOVED it :)
I love this photo -- she turned around and waved to me ;)
The final turn.
Happy, Happy, Happy!
Unfortunately, the day was VERY warm. But THANKFULLY, there was a wonderful water park to go to! We decided to spend a few hours at the outside park. Many of the girls were there and they all had a great time playing games in the water and doing the activities.
Just finishing our couple hours in the water.
The afternoon full-group activity was something new for my girls. They all did some tye-dying. This was a little messy for some -- My Darling stayed clean, Elizabeth had a few spots that can be cleaned BUT BaJabs -- well, she has splatters all over her BACK!!! They had lots of fun, though -- and the shirts turned out GREAT.
My Darling just getting started.
Many of families decided to go on the Alpine Slide. We actually had a few tickets left. So, Matt took each of the girls again!
The nerves are GONE! My Darling is loving this!
She was laughing about how much FUN this is --
This was such a good DADDY activity -- I was a tad disappointed I was not feeling up to do this activity BUT I think it was great fun for the girls with daddy -- AND I loved being the photographer :)
There was just one ticket left and each girl already had their 2nd ride. SO -- Matt picked a number and the closest one got to go the last time. BaJabs was the lucky one. So, the other two girls and I went to the watch the zipline while they finished.
Well -- BaJabs and daddy LOVE to go fast. BUT they had a little mishap. They should of slowed down for the corner-- Well, they did not!!! The cart tipped a bit. Matt took the brunt of the 'road rash' -- although, BaJabs got a bit, too. Thankfully, Matt could get it back up and keep going. BaJabs was actually filming the whole way down AND never dropped it -- I do have the video linked below --
Daddy and BaJabs' road rash. Daddy definately got it worse. Yes, they cleaned it!
We enjoyed a wonderful catered dinner together at the resort.
They kids were able to spend more time just playing and talking together. The adults enjoyed our time together as well. The decision for where next years reunion is was decided ..................
BaJabs was showing some of the girls her stub -- I love this because she is so comfortable with her difference!
We took the chair lifts to the top to enjoy some music and the view --
It was a beautiful evening to do this!!!
Elizabeth rode ahead of us with some others -- she was waiting.
The view from the top -- with 2 of our beautiful daughters.
3 YueYang sisters and BaJabs :) The tallest is the youngest of the 18 in our group :) My Darling and her friend next to her are the smallest in the group.
This was a BIG deal to Elizabeth. She wanted her cheek painted! She got a panda bear.
BaJabs was the last face painted before the lift was closed to go DOWN the hill.
We ended our evening with some time on the lawn. There was a wedding reception going on with some good music. The girls did some dancing on a side area WITHOUT disturbing the wedding BUT the bride noticed and came to talk to them. They girls thought this was AWESOME! Really, it was a great end to an FANTASTIC day!
The looks on the girls are GREAT -- they are so excited here!
