Utah Bloggers Meetup

This weekend I got to attend a super fun event with the Utah Bloggers Meetup. It was held down at Blickenstaff's down in Provo. I had no idea such a fun store existed! It was like the love child of Willy Wonka and FAO Schwarz!

I so need a wall mounted dinosaur head for my 3 yr old's paleontology room and a car grill for our transportation nursery!

Everywhere you turned there was something fun to look at, play with or ride! Lincoln was going crazy. He thought he'd died and gone to heaven!

Oh, and did I mention the adult sized rocking horse?!

Stacy the horse riding pro looking calm and collected.

Amanda got on after she took my pic and said, "I'm going to get on and just smile, not be eccentric like you."

What's that supposed to mean?

Oh, that's what that means. Kids, stay away from the crazy faced lady with 17 double chins.

All in all it was a great time. Amanda and I toted around our twin babies (ok so they're not twins, but they were born on the same day). And Stacy and I raided the Juicy Pear Jelly Belly Bin because we all know they are the best!

It was great to see some familiar faces:
Camille, April, Pamela, Brittany, Kim, Lindsey, Carly

and also meet some new ones!
Carrian, Gayle, Mindi, Lindsey, and Heidi.

Thanks for the good times Blickenstaff's and Aiden can't get over the chocolate rocks!

That was so fun! My boys went nuts over the candy rocks too. My four year old put his shoes on and headed for the van thinking that we were going right then.

I'm so sad I didn't get a chance to talk to you personally since yours is one of my favorite blogs. The event was a blast and I love that Blickenstaff's is a toy store for grownups as well as kids. After seeing some of you on that wild rocking horse, I completely lost my nerve to try it. You are so brave!

I didn't know about it and I am so hurt:( Not really but I really would have loved to attend. Will you keep me in mind for the future?
Thank you!

Blickenstaff's is awesome! Our fave is the candy that looks like Legos. So much fun!

Wish I lived closer to SLC so I could attend stuff like this more easily! Looks like fun!

I was so bummed that I couldn't go. We had family pictures that morning, and I was pretty sure people would notice if I wasn't in them. ;)

Camille said...

i was so glad to be able to go! And wish I would have left with the rocking horse!! :) You look fabulous, by the way! :)
