Resort fun!

We're back!
We had a great week. (Thank you, Grand Dad!)

We all missed our 'fun and happy Dad' that's for sure!

Here were some of the highlights:

~Being given keys to our cottage that didn't work. Actually, make that 3 sets of keys that didn't work. In the rain! For an hour and a half! UGH! We were a wet and grumpy crew by then
~Spending the gift card to make up for that hour and a half in the rain!
~Artic swimming on Tuesday! We played in the heated pool and lazy river even though it was only 54 degrees outside! Our legs felt numb when we ran to and from the jacuzzi.
~Overdosing on vitamin C to counteract our swimming adventure.
~The game room! Lots of ping pong and Rock Band.
~Being blessed to have the Z and N join us for a few days while their parents were at a conference nearby.
~Joy and N doing their version of 'mattress surfing' on two foot long banisters. ; )
~Andrew and his friend Z locking all the DS's and ipods in the safe and the combination NOT working! ; ) A timer came on and it wouldn't open for 30 minutes!
~Spending the "Wiggle Money" as Andrew callled it.
~Riding the water slide a gazillion times.
~Playing football on the golf course.
~Watching enough Disney Channel to make this mom want to gag! (thank heavens we don't have cable at home!)
~Shopping for my teen Bible Quizzer.
~A warm day of swimming -Hurray! Lots of fun with Z and N before they had to leave!
~Dad and Nate's day at the TBQ match.
~A date night for us! : )
~Nate as the reigning ping pong champ against 3 men from NY!
~Raccoon watching! Those things make the rounds and hang down from tree branches opening trash cans. Amazing!
~Here's a big shout out for Sizzler and the all-you-can-eat breakfasts for $4.95!!!!! Do we have a Sizzler at here?!

Thank you Grand Dad! It was so MUCH fun!!!!!!!!!!!!
