This weekend we went to Winter Park, Colorado with friends from when we lived in Michigan (who now live here). What FUN!
Winter Park offers a plethora of fantastic summer activities: mountain biking; an alpine slide; a human maze; safe bungee trampolining, a kids' zip wire; a climbing wall; mini golf; a bounce house; and a gyroscope. Really great! All of the kids ended up loving an activity that initially scared them a bit; it was a great opportunity to build confidence while having a blast.
The maze made me a little sick, but the kids did it over and over!
Who doesn't love a trampoline?
Everyone did this... Some only once!
I also climbed this wall, making it to the top on my first try. I think I earned some "cool mom" points for that one—but I won't share the many pictures Katya took of my rear as I made my way up...! There's an indoor climbing center in Moscow we'll have to visit; Natalia was very good and loved it.
Our kids all had such a wonderful time together. Katya even went to school with their daughter yesterday and their classes are going to be pen pals! Natalia and their son also became good buddies; to think that the two of them first met seven years ago when we had just moved to Moscow and my friend was still there waiting for her newly-adopted son's passport! Very special.
It goes without saying that their youngest gal stole the show...
Wish we could see our friends more often! And it sure would be nice to spend more time in such beautiful mountains!
