When Are We Going Back??...

...was the question I heard the minute we drove away from Williams the last time we were there! A few weeks ago we headed about 3 hrs North for the Polar Express and snow day and the day we left we heard the question...when can we go back?! So we told the boys that we would come back over our 3 day weekend and bring our family friends, Silvia & Andrea with us!

So Saturday after Ryan's football banquet, we packed up the car and headed north! We arrived in Williams around 7pm, after a stop for dinner. We unpacked the car and headed to the pool!
After a dip in the pool, we went back to our room to watch movies in our PJs!

After a good nights sleep...we woke up, had some breakfast and headed to the sledding hill. The girls have been sledding before, but not in quite awhile! They were very excited, as were the boys!

The weather was great...although it had not snowed since we had been there almost 3 weeks the snow was kinda hard...but the sun was beautiful and we almost dressed too warm!


Brendan biffing it on his first run of the day...sadly this would be the only time he wanted to go down the hill. He walked around playing in the snow (and pouting!) and ended up rebuilding some of the snowmen that had been damaged!


On your marks...get set...GO!

Silvia, Andrea, Ryan & Colin

Brendan walking through the woods...he didn't know that I was following him!

The Boys and The Girls!

Colin & Silvie playing in the snow!

Colin had lots of fun sledding on Sunday...up and down and up and down...over and over again!

Brendan with his 're'built snowman! He was very proud of himself!

After a couple of hours playing in the snow, we headed back to the hotel for some warming up with baths and hot chocolate! We watched movies, took naps, and played games! Unfortunately Colin got the 12 hour flu and was in bed the rest of the night :(

So with sickie in bed, Ryan stayed behind while I took the girls and Brendan into town for dinner at a very yummy pizza is on historic route 66!

After dinner, which we brought home for Ryan, we walked around the shops, had some very yummy pie for dessert and then headed to the pool again before calling it a night!

We had lots of fun on our snow get away!

So glad you got to go back. I know it looked like a ball the first well as the second time!

Sorry about your little guy getting the flu...ugh! Glad the rest of you didn't get it.

Sounds like a fun time except the flu. Yuck. poor baby. The pictures are great and what a memorable time. You all are so sweet to take the girls along. I know they had a blast.

Poor Colin...glad he had a fun day, though :)

THat looked so FUN! I am secretly hoping we get some more's in the forecast, but not sure if it will be as much as last time. What great pictures! You sure know how to pack in a full day of excitement!

Great fun! Too bad Colin got sick. That stinks.

What fun it is to play in the snow. We haven't done that this year. We'd have to drive a couple hours to find any.

Just haven't planned it yet. Maybe it'll snow here in the next month and we can just play in it here.

Have a good weekend,
