A Spot of Sun

A Spot of Sun: Tradition #13 - Parties: "this weekend with the Generations Network party on Friday in Midway at the Zermott Resort . . .

Friday we headed off for a night of celebrating at Matt's work party. It was held at a charming "Swiss" resort in Midway, Utah. There was a great buffet, a fun band, a hilarious magician and a comedian we never made it to. There were also some games with prizes. We ended up winning two $25 gift certificates, one to Best Buy and one to iTunes. We also got a 1 gig thumb drive. We failed to win the cruise or huge tv, but it was certainly charming and fun."
