We took another trip up north with our family + Grammy. It was fun to get away. We did get to see some snow, albeit little 3ft patches of it here and there. But hey, the kids were happy with it, what with making (and throwing) snowballs and miniature snowmen :) We always love where we stay, just for the fact that it can sleep 8, has awesome views, an outdoor patio/stairs and a fireplace (gotta make S'mores while on vaca in the pines!) We took a few drives out and about, one to walk around Sunset Crater and the other to a nearby park. Jared and Paul also got in some Wii or Playstation video game action at the activity center ;) No, the swimming pools weren't open yet. Too cold, I guess :P
Enjoy the pics!
The girlies, all snug in their bed. Sleep? Yeah right! Ha! ;) And how much longer do you think we can squeeze all 4 of them into 1 bed?
