Me and the Teg man
The beloved car....the best money ever spent on a toy.
Our little indian girl!
What you see in this picture is what you get...this is how big it was for 3 adults and 2 kids....Nice!
Mom on Taylor's tractor. She was flying around on this thing and we were all laughing but really her foot was stuck and she couldn't get it to stop. Funny!
Two boy's up to something. This is my two nephews Caden and Taylor
Outside of our cabin...ignore Rylee who is apparently stripping on the front porch.
Melissa and Breanna
Jacob, Rylee and Zach at the campfire
Shannon and Mike (Melissa's Husband)
Mama and Darrin...I can't take pictures of mom looking at the camera b/c she closes her eyes everytime!
We turned Tegan's carseat around after he cried the whole first half of the car ride there and he loved it!
Knocked out on the way home
I took this picture of the mountains while driving.
We went to the mountains to "rough it" this past weekend. We left on Thursday and stayed until Sunday. This is the first little vacation we have gotten to have in years. It was full of family...My mom and Step dad, Oldest sister and her husband and their four kids, my other sister and her husband, my younger brother and his girlfriend and his son, and then we had invited Joan (my mother-in-law) to go with us. Oh wait did I forget that my dad came and stayed with my sister in her camper. Yeap...that would be my mom, step dad and dad all on the same vacation. We are very lucky that they get along and are able to do this. Then my older brother came up with his wife and daughter and spent the day on Friday. So we had a pretty full group.
When I say we roughed it I'm not kidding. We stayed in the smallest little cabin ever with no bathroom, no kitchen, no AIR CONDITIONING and no where to hide. There was one full size bed and one set of bunk beds and barely enough room to put all our stuff and set up the pack-n-play for Teg. But somehow it was all fun. It stayed cool in our cabin and we stayed busy outside anyways.
Tegan loved being outside all the time. We got him this little car to push him around in and that is all he wanted to do. He loved this car. It is the best money I have ever spent on a toy...EVER! He slept o.k. The first night we had some issues but other than that he did good.
Rylee had the time of her life. Her mommy (me) let go of her germaphobia slightly and let her run and play and do whatever she wanted. She did not want to come home. She loved every minute of it. This is the first time that she has left our house for several days and be able to remember it.
We went to the casino (or as Rylee called it Johnny Carino's) and lost some money. Melissa (my sister) was the big winner of the trip and I don't want to talk about it.
It's amazing but all of us siblings were able to be on the same campground (with separate sleeping quarters) and actually get along. There was no arguing that I knew if.
Tegan was ready to get back home to his crawling space b/c there just wasn't anywhere up there to let him crawl.
The campground was great and I got in lots of walking since we were about a mile from the swimming pools. They had in door and outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs, minature golf and huge playgrounds. It was fun and we will probably go back at some point but we will be splurging a little more and getting on of the way more expensive cabins with a bathroom and air conditioning....mostly for the bathroom!
Here are some pictures....Enjoy!
