It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

A Super Spontaneous Weekend Getaway!!!

Mike called me on his way home from work on Friday night and asked if I wanted to get away for the weekend. He made reservations for a cabin up at the YMCA of the Rockies-Snow Mountain Ranch. We spent Friday evening packing and headed out early on Saturday morning. It was a 2 1/2 hour drive but so worth it. When we got there, we went sledding. Here are some of the pictures from this super fun winter activity.After we went sledding we checked in to our cabin and had lunch. Here is a picture of one of the cabins at the ranch. Unfortunately I lamely forgot to take a picture of our cabin before we left.
After lunch and a little rest time in the cabin, we took the kids to the indoor swimming pool and swam for a while. It was great fun. But I didn't take any pictures. We took the kids out to KFC/Taco Bell for dinner. After dinner we all went down to the Recreation Center. In this building, they had roller skating, basketball, volleyball, ping pong, foosball, and rock climbing. We spent about 2 hours participating in the various activities there. Here are a couple of pictures.
After our adventures at the Rec Center, we headed back to the cabin for games, snacks and a fire in the fireplace.
It wasn't long before the boys were ready to crash!! They fell asleep in me and Mike's bed.Sunday morning was pretty restful. We decided to take the kids ice skating before we left and headed home. Here are a couple of those pictures.
We had a great family weekend and enjoyed this ranch so much and all their activities that we will be looking at coming back again and again. They have great activities year round and the price was really reasonable for the cabin and all the activities included. It was really nice to have some time like this toegther as a family without the interuptions of phones and other things. We had a blast just being together. More Pictures coming.

Michelle,
Looks like you had a great deal of fun. We'll have to remember that for the next time we come to Loveland, or at least sometime in the future. Good to see pictures of all the kids. Tell them all hello from me and their grandpa.
