Aspen Grove

'Aspen Grove' by Landon -- I'll have to ask him to remember what everything is :)

Just before Landon started school, Jordan had to go on a last minute trip out to New York. So before he went, we decided to make the most of our last school-free family time, and we went on a somewhat last minute trip ourselves to Aspen Grove.

It looked like it would be the perfect family vacation for us, and it really was.

We spent the week playing pingpong, tennis, badminton, pool, shuffleboard, basketball, chutes and ladders, go fish... hiking, swimming, rock (wall) climbing, crafting, eating yummy food, throwing rocks in the river, talking and being together (debbie and jordan), being pushed on the swings to her hearts content (ellie), being held and held and held (owen), making friends (Landon), hiking between the cabin and camp, sharing giant creamery ice creams, reading, enjoying the gorgeous days in the beautiful mountains (such incredible views!)...

A wonderful end-of-summer vacation!

Lots of pics in no particular order --

Watching for Landon and listening for his cheer - "We are the kittens! And we say meow...No! We say ROAR!!"

Climbing... Jordan was much tougher than me though :)
Cute guy! :)

Throwing rocks in the river - possibly the week's highlight :)
