We were so blessed over spring break to be given the opportunity to go to the mountains for a few days. Let me tell you, it couldn't have come at a better time. Rick had been working many long days over the last couple of weeks. Our kids have been fighting a lot. We were all exhausted. Some good concentrated rest and family time was definitely in order. We returned to the amazing cabin that friends of ours have so generously allowed us to use. It wasn't too far of a drive, but far enough away to escape our everyday stress.
We began our first night with pizza
Cody on the deck
Rick cooking big breakfast
There are lots of fun games and puzzles to do.
These 3 put together a very difficult Coca Cola puzzle
We did our 2nd Installment of "Minute 2 Win It" Games
How many noodles can you get on the skewer in one minute?
Make a pyramid with 28 cups and stack them back in one minute!
Pull the index cards out while leaving the cups in a stack
No one was able to complete this one
Isaiah didn't quite understand
See how many ping pong balls you can bounce into the cups in one minute
Get pennies one by one out of the pantyhose
There was a fabulous game called "Junk in the Trunk" that I was not allowed to photograph.
It involved a tissue box full of ping pong balls strapped to our booties. We had to see how many ping pong balls we could shake out of the box in one minute.
Here are the winners: First place-Rick, 2nd place-Lauren, 3rd place-Cody and we gave a consolation prize for last place that went to Laila
We ended the night with Pepsi/Dr. Pepper/Root Beer floats
Laila brought her robe with her so she could relax. (sorry about the snotty nose)
We spent lots of time on this amazing couch playing a very volatile game of Phase 10 and watching many movies.
We headed into Woodland Park one night for dinner at a Mexican restaurant
