This last week we took an extra long weekend and went up to Grand Lake with some of Michele's family. The kids had a blast. Michele and I took Brie and Abby on a peddle boat on the first afternoon. That was sooo scary for me, because I have a bit of a deep water fear! The fear is only there on little boats like that, I am usually okay on bigger boats. But the girls did great and they both kept telling me it was okay. They loved it and were both far braver than I was. The next day we met up with the rest of the family and we took a bigger boat tour. It was great, I loved that one. It was so pretty and it got really cool and breezy. After that we took the kiddo's to the stables for a little horse ride and then went back to the house and had a camp fire. We roasted marshmallows and made smores, but I don't think the girls wee impressed with the smores. They preferred eating the cold marshmallows in the bag. On the next day we went over tail ridge road and I got a little altitude sickness... LOL... Then we headed into Estes Park for lunch and then Michele and I headed home with the girls. We were all very tired and I had a house full of kids the next day, but it was great to get away. We really need to vow to be better about enjoying this beautiful state we live in.
