Recently Keara and Kailei’s Mom and Dad decided it was time to take a vacation so they have planned one for March 27th – April 2nd, 2009. They wanted some place warm so they decided to head for California where there is sun, surf and lots of places to have fun. Now California is a big state so they were a little unsure where to go. After doing some research on the internet they decided they will fly into Los Angeles.
The best thing about Los Angeles is that it is near Anaheim and Anaheim is near DISNEYLAND. Keara and Kailei’s parents are pretty sure they will have fun if they go to Disneyland. Who wouldn’t?
And because your Aunt, Uncle and cousins love you very much you are going on the trip with them. So start saving your money because you’re going to Disneyland Nic.
Aunt Chris, Uncle Zeb, Keara and Kailei

The next morning Keara was asking us who won the election. As Kailei heard us say that Obama had won, she burst into tears. Unsure of course why, I asked what was wrong. "But I wanted to be President!", she said with her feelings hurt. I cracked up.

As seems to be becoming tradition, the Wenzel's and Grammy and Poppy came over for Halloween. We ate pizza and then went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The weather was amazingly warm so I volunteered to take the girls out while Zeb stayed home to hand out candy. (I'm really a fair weathered parent when it comes to trick-or-treating.)

I love the fall and there is nothing better than being outside enjoying the beautiful color of the leaves, enjoying a slight snip in the air and spending it with friends.

We went to the church carnival on Sunday with our friends the Wyman's. It had an international theme with games to play, food to eat, and plenty of entertainment. Really it was quite enjoyable and reasonably priced.
Keara won a cake at the cake walk and was very excited. She is lucky when it comes to cake walks because this is not just the first time she has won before.
Kailei enjoyed the jumping castles and slides.
We had a nice time and the kids came home pooped and ready for a nap.

Turns out we were slow moving around so got a later start than we wanted but it was relaxing to just puz around the condo. When we finally made it out, we walked around the Copper Mountain complex. It is a nice ski resort area. There was a country music festival of sorts going on so we got to visit some booths and enjoy some music. We ate some of the vendor food found at the festival for lunch and found outselves back in the condo and seeking a nap. The girls sleep well while I read a book on the patio and Zeb went for a bike ride. Very relaxing for everyone.
Around 3:30pm Tracie, Gary and cousins came to join us for an evening. Naturally the kids loved to see other and it made it special to just be out of town for the weekend. Of course when they arrived, it started to rain which was a bummer but didn't damper any spirits. The rain was short lived so we found a place to have dinner and came back for a movie and popcorn night.
Sunday the kids woke up really early which meant we all woke up early. We headed off to breakfast and then enjoyed some time in the sun sitting by a creek. The kids had fun throwing rocks in the water and looking for fish. Not surprisingly, Kailei took a dive into the creek. Oh boy, was she upset and the water was very cold. Zeb was right there to catch her but she was not a happy camper. We made a quick trip back to the condo to change Kailei's clothes and then headed out to partake in some activities around Copper Mountain. The kids were dying to do this bungee jump trampoline thing so we bought them all tickets for that and they had a great time. We then went up the chair lift that took us to the top of one of the mountains where we walked around and enjoyed the view. Trying to beat any rain that might come in we headed down the mountain shortly after and headed to Frisco. It is a small town just east of Copper Mountain. We were hoping to rent a kayak but they were all taken so we had a picnic lunch, rode our bikes and walked down by the marina. As the rain came in once again, we took the kids swimming.
We decided to wrap up our stay in Copper Mountain late Sunday night as we wanted to try and beat traffic.
It was a great get-a-way and we really enjoyed our time with the Wenzel crew.
See here for pictures of the trip.
