The week of Thanksgiving from Sunday to Wednesday, we had the opportunity to getaway to the mountains for a little break. Our family really needed some focused time together. We have had a busy fall of football, soccer, piano, school, and Rick's trip to Africa. We were all in need of a break! Once again the generosity of our friends provided this opportunity.
We spent a lot of time relaxing. We wore our pajamas the whole time we were there! We had family meals together along with some nighttime treats while we watched movies.
One afternoon, Rick and Sam went out exploring the area
Sam liked throwing rocks at the icy ponds
Rick got donuts from the Donut Mill.
These things are GIGANTIC! I am pretty sure each sprinkle donut has a whole bottle of sprinkles on it!
Very happy to have donuts
It took 4 days to eat all of these
Stacking dice with cups on our hands
I was dominating in this game!
Next we had to get pretzels on a bamboo skewer without using our hands
Note to self: When you are using bamboo skewers in a game, be sure to take them away from the children when the game is complete. Laila was running around with hers, fell on it, and cut the back of her throat.
I love my reaction here
Holding a skittle with a straw...
carrying it across the room to drop in a bowl
Blowing cups off a table with a blown up balloon
Abby got tickled and couldn't stop laughing to blow up the balloon again
Love Isaiah's expression blowing up his balloon
Rick dominated in this game getting all the cups off with one balloon's worth of air
Trying so hard to blow up that balloon
The final game was the most hilarious! We had a pair of panty hose with a clementine in one of the legs. We put the panty hose on our heads and had to swing around the clementine to knock over cups.
I laughed so hard during this game.
You can't use your hands.
I am laughing in the background watching Isaiah
This game is a bit dangerous. That orange swings around wildly!
We ended our time with some s'mores
