The ABC's of Sunriver

A: At last!!!!! We finally made it to Sunriver Friday evening! We told Maisey a few weeks ago that we were going and every morning she woke up and asked, "Is today the day we go to Sunriver?" She was so excited to be there! B: Black Bear Diner C: Cuddling with Grammy
D: Discovering Snow
E: Eating! We tried to do some of every one's favorites! We ate so much over the weekend! One disappointment, however, was the Chinese restaurant that we usually eat at was closed for remodel!

F: Family
G: Grammy

H: Hot Tub (no picture necessary!)

I: Ice Cream -- twice for the adults!

J: Junk Food -- oreos, almond m&m's, peanut butter m&m's, risens, swedish fish, and licorice! YUM!

K: Kids! This weekend was all about the kids! They had such a great time! I was so surprised at how well Gage did! He slept in a room all by himself. He didn't get in to very much, and we was pretty much HAPPY all weekend!

L: Lovely! Just lovely! When we left on a bike ride, it was sunny outside. In the middle of the bike ride we got caught in a blizzard/ice storm! I couldn't see and was peddling my bike with my eyes closed while ice pelted my face! Not Fun! This is what it looked like when we got home!

M: Maisey had a pretty good time between all of the fits she was throwing! Those are getting old, fast!
N: No tennis! All I wanted to do in Sunriver was play tennis. At one point when it wasn't snowing, we drove around to try to find a court with a net up. Most of the courts were clear but no nets. The one court we found with a net must have been shadowed by something because it was still covered in snow! :( I was so bummed! I guess I'll have to wait for the summer!

O: October was the last time we went to Sunriver! We need to go more often! It is just so relaxing there!

P: Picture Taking -- Maisey loves taking pictures with my camera! This one she took of Gage and I at Black Bear Diner turned out pretty good!

Q: Quiet! After the kids were asleep we enjoyed some peace and quiet! There's just something about being out in the middle of no where that makes you feel so peaceful!

R: Rides. Maisey enjoyed giving her brother rides on the John Deere! And Gage enjoyed receiving them!
S: Sledding. We woke up to snow one morning, got everyone bundled up, and headed to the sledding hill, only to find it was closed for the season because of a construction project! Another bummer! So we made the best of the snow we had and Daddy pulled the kids around the cul-de-sac behind a bike! T: Trailer -- this is what the trailer looked like when we got back from the bike ride in the middle of the snow/ice storm! The kids LOVE being in there though!

U: Up and Down the River, Phase 10, Ticket to Ride, Blockus, and Yahtzee! We played games every chance we had!

V: Victory!!!!! We watched the BYU basketball team beat Gonzaga!

W: Window watching! This is what we could see from the upstairs windows! Beautiful, huh?

X: X-box! Shaun got some NCAA football playin in!

Y: Yahtzee -- Maisey played Yahtzee with my mom and I and got her first Yahtzee ever with 5's!
Z: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz -- We got lots of rest while we were there! It's always so nice to not have to worry about your responsibilities at home for a few days!

P.S. Can I just say that I get so frustrated with Blogger's formatting issues! I have everything just the way I want it and then they mess with all of the spacing! Hence the reason "B" is at the end of "A" and not on it's own line. I've fixed it several times, but when I push publish post it goes back to the same way. Anyone know how to fix this?
