Glenwood Springs Weekend

We wanted a fun and memorable getaway during spring break.  We looked at lots of things and took so long deciding what to do that we almost didn't do anything at all.  We finally decided to do a quick 2 day trip to Glenwood Springs.  We left Friday morning and went straight to the hot springs for a swim.  We had brought a picnic lunch, but it was REALLY cold outside, so we hunted around for a warm place to eat it.  It was still too early to check in to our hotel room, so we slid in to a booth at the hot springs grill.  We felt bad eating our own food there, so we bought a few orders of fries.  Yum.

Poor little Eleanor was so tired.  She sleeps so well in a crib...not so well in my arms.  I have to walk and bounce and walk and bounce until she finally drifts off.  If there is any break in the rhythm of walking and bouncing, or any loud noise she will wake up right away.  She takes three naps a day, so my arms and back got really tired over the two days we were there :)
After lunch we swam all afternoon until we were ready for dinner.

In the evening we bought some ice cream from the grocery store and shared it in the hotel room while watching America's Funniest Home Videos on TV.  The kids loved it and we laughed a lot!

The next morning we had a fabulous continental breakfast and then went back to the pool.  There was a thick fog and it was beautiful.  It even snowed on us, which was magical.  We were all pretty tired from the night of sleeping with 7 people in one hotel room, so we left for home right after lunch.  The kids had a great time and it was a nice escape from every day life.  I will be wasn't relaxing or rejuvenating ..I was REALLY tired when we got home, but it was worth it.
