Our Annual Trip to the Mountains

_MG_9999.jpgThe Rocky Mountain Professional Church Workers' Conference is held at the Beaver Run Resort every year. If I were a lover of cold weather and snow I would probably try and make an effort to visit this place in the winter. It's a lovely place with ski runs that run right into the resort. There was a little snow dusting the tops of the mountains while we were there. The ski runs, you can see, were begging for snow.
_MG_9974.jpgThe Divine Service went off without a hitch and there were no worries of a return visit to the ER. Good thing since Dr. Stork no longer works there.
_MG_9977.jpgWe did a lot of exploring around the resort during our stay at Beaver Run. 
_MG_9921.jpgIt seemed like we ended up in the game room often. It kept the children occupied for quite awhile.
_MG_9929.jpgDavid learned the proper way to hold a golf club.
_MG_9925.jpgThomas tried to milk a cow to no success.

_MG_9928.jpgThe little girls actually thought they were playing video games by climbing onto this game. That ended up saving me a lot of money.
_MG_9995.jpgThe older children enjoyed exploring the resort, on their own, with their friends. The resort is, seriously, just like a big huge maze.
IMG_3227.jpgWe even enjoyed dinner with friends one evening, and Anna enjoyed a little lipstick when she and her friend, Abby, locked themselves in the bathroom.
_MG_0003.jpgThe day we left we headed into town where the views of the mountains can be seen from anywhere downtown. Ski runs rule this town.
_MG_0004.jpgThe streets are lined with beautiful Aspen trees making you want to visit this beautiful little town doesn't it?

Anna looks beautiful but something tells me that your friend Carissa needs to teach her a thing or two.
