We needed a getaway….badly.
James and I hadn't been on a vacation {just the two of us} since Micah was 6 months old. That was June of 2009.

My parents own a timeshare in Breckenridge, CO and we booked it for an entire week for only $169!
Three of the days my parents and my sister watched the kids for us.
Yes…3 days and nights alone!

We slept in.
We ate out.
We laid by the pool and sipped on frilly drinks.

Our gorgeous mountain views….poolside!

We played sudoku on the kindle…in peace and quite!
We even watched about 2 movies a day.


Then the crew joined us for the remaining 4 days of the rental.
Let the chaos commence.

 Ella doesn't like to share.

My brothers "vintage" lego box saved our sanity.

Our ad for apple juice.
It was HOT even in the mountains.
We had taken the kids to a little fun park, and got suckered into paying $18 to let the two boys jump in a bouncy house. We made them jump for 45 minutes so we didn't feel guilty about paying that much!

I taught Ella how to lounge.

Watching her brothers swim (constantly).

My lady bug loves her water!

Movie night….somebody loves popcorn. {No, she's nothing like me}

Pizza at Fatty's. {That's how I felt when we got home}

{No..the sun wasn't shiny RIGHT in our eyes…}

And the most fun we had was on a Chuck Wagon Dinner.

Of course we were the last to arrive so we had to wait for our wagon to make the trip back up the hill.
But it was worth the wait because we were the only ones to ride it!

Pictures do not do these mountain views justice.

The kids had SO much fun and the food was delicious.
The show was hilarious and really interactive.
Worth every cent for the ticket price.

What a great trip. We only left a day early because Ella is the worst sleeper ever.
But other than that…AMAZING trip.

Great pictures! I love how your parents allowed you and your husband to reconnect, I bet that was wonderful! We recently went to myrtle (our time share) and its like a double suite so we invited my husbands parents to come with us and have the other room so we could have mini dates while they watched Judah. It was much needed because we haven't' been on a "date" since before Judah was born.

Your little Ella is a little doll
