Cabin Fever

A couple of weekends ago, we decided to take advantage of this Colorado snow, and rent a cabin for the weekend. We drove an hour and a half away to a cute little ski town between Vail and Aspen, called Glenwood Springs, and stayed here for two nights

Lots of snow and blue skies made perfect weather conditions for our fun filled weekend away. We shopped the town,

rode the "sky train" - as Parker called it, up to the Look Out Grill for lunch... and couldn't get enough of the great views.

We took the kids sledding,

and that night, decided to brave the cold with the locals and swim in the natural hot springs pool.

Being the really good parents that we are, we thought swimming outside at night in the snow sounded really fun for our two boys. We saw lots of other kids, and babies doing it, so why not, right? Well, I guess we can't consider ourselves locals, cause our boys HATED it. Parker didn't speak the entire time, and just clung to Chad. And when Blake's lips started turning blue, we decided to call it quits. Maybe we'll try it again in the summertime.
We defrosted our children and they were back to themselves in about 20 minutes. So, we grabbed some take-out, took nice, hot showers, put on warm pj's, watched some basketball games on TV, and played with the kids at the cabin with a toasty fire burning.... much better.

It was a really fun weekend with my boys. Needless to say, we were sad to leave our little cabin and head back to real life. Can't wait to go back!
