On our way to the cabin area, we had to share the space with sheepherders who were moving a flock along the road-later that evening, we heard the baa-ing as they passed our cabin on their way to a new feeding ground.

Food is always plentiful when we run away to the mountains and this year was no exception. I created a sign-up sheet and everyone had the opportunity to help with the prep or the clean-up, whichever they wanted and it gave me time with each individually. Creating memories and nourishing relationships are always two goals for our family time together.
And of course, the games and just relaxing, visiting and a little hammock time!

The food was eaten, the dishes were done, the cabin cleaned and readied for the next occupants but the most important thing was, we had a grand family week despite the rain, the blackout, the injuries to people and stuff and the lack of family members who were not able to come. We hope to have the entire group together August of 2013 when we return and enjoy a reunion somewhere in Colorado...can we top this facility??? Probably not but as we grow, the cabin doesn't so Cristin, Kim, Tawnya, April and Stephanie will be in charge of finding and planning for next time! A grand farewell to this marvelous and gorgeous retreat with it's wonderful memories...
