Easter in Winter Park

March 25, 2008 at 6:29 pm (Family, Kids)

The Brown’s invited us up to their cabin in Winter Park for Easter weekend. We had a great time with them and the kids. We started off the weekend at the tubing hill. It was super fun, but Delaney wouldn’t go down, so David and I took turns taking Andrew down. Most of the time Andrew and I went in one tube, and held on as a little cluster with Kris, David B, and their girls. We had a blast. That hill looks small from the road, but when you are on it, it is steep and fast and really fun! It was a great start to our weekend.

After tubing we went to the cabin for the Easter Cookie Decorating Extravaganza! We had icing, gumdrops, sprinkles and dots to decorate the cookies. Of course any edible project is always a hit with the kids.

The next morning, the kids woke up at 6:15am for the egg hunt, no joke. We didn’t get pictures of this, because, well, it was 6:15am and I wasn’t really functional. They had a blast though. Each of the four kids got to find 20 eggs filled with stickers, toys, and of course, CANDY!

Next we headed to Devil’s Thumb Ranch for a sleigh ride. We rode a sleigh pulled by three big, beautiful horses, and the kids got to push hay off the sleigh to feed Easter breakfast to the horses, ponies, mules, donkeys, and cows on the ranch. This was fun, but very cold. The whole ride lasted about an hour and it was around 10 degrees, I think. My toes were numb by the end…so it is a damn good thing that at the end there was a campfire waiting for us with hot cocoa and the fixins for making S’MORES!!!! Not a bad idea at 10:30 in the morning!

Any time we weren’t doing an activity, the kids all kept busy playing together. Delaney is finally big enough that she can play with the other kids and run around all silly with them. Andrew and Megan still have a blast together, which is really cute to see. They run around all hyper and screaming and make up games together. The four of them definitely had fun together, Andrew and Megan being the ring-leaders of course 🙂 At least no fingers were lost with all of the door slamming!

So, that was our Snow-Tubing, Cookie-Making, Door-Slamming, Egg-Hunting, Sleigh-Riding, S’more-Eating Family Fun Winter Park Easter Weekend! Not bad at all! Thanks for a fun Easter David & Kris B.!
