While at the cabin we played, ate, relaxed, and played, ate, and relaxed.
Christian created a slide out of the staircase and the smaller people especially enjoyed sliding down. The braver people (i.e. Christian) even enjoyed going down surfing style.
We then repurposed the cushions into a fort. The girls all hid inside while Christian pretended to be a dinosaur outside. He would roar and shake the walls. Bee was thrilled and really had fun.
|The flashlight was a hit in the fort as well.|
|We also had a smashing/wrestling match.|
|Bee brought all of her 'minerals' and proudly displayed and organized them for everyone. She cherishes these.|
|Here I think that she is pretending that this branch is her dinosaur tooth.|
|When they finished digging their hole, Denali decided to sit in it. Then I proceeded to bury her in the sand. It did not take long and she seemed to enjoy it. Bee was upset. She said that she had wanted to live in that hole.|
|Dirt tan. She had sand in everything, and I mean everything.|
We were hungry, sunburned, and tired by this point. Next we went to a famous local place to try the raspberry shakes. I also ordered a turkey avocado sandwich, which was fabulous beyond belief. The fries were excellent as well. So much for my diet. Eating healthy on this trip proved to be a challenge. There were so many delicious options. I tried to compensate by exercising most days.
After lunch Ben, Denali, Bee, and I drove back through the canyon to grandma's house where we relaxed all evening while grandma entertained, or was entertained by, Bee.
