Our Weekend..........

...........Through The Eyes Of Our 7 Year Old. This past weekend we visited Heartland Lodge again. Just Todd and I went last year and it was the most gorgeous place to visit. Here is last years' post on it. We really wanted to bring the boys this year because we knew how much they would enjoy it all. Not as many Multisport Club members were able to make it this year but we still had a lot of fun. Noah took a ton of pictures so I'm letting him highlight the trip this time. I had no desire to touch anything electronic this weekend and it was so freeing. I enjoyed the outdoors with my family, read my book, ate great food, and slept in the comfiest bed. Here are just a few of the things that caught Noah's eye this weekend.

A deer antler chandelier.............


Thermometer.....unfortunately it wasn't as warm as I would have liked it to be!

A family picture taken on our hayride. We met another family from Quincy there that is related to the family of Drew and Noahs' friend. The boys had fun playing with their daughter Abbie.

A little blurry but this give you an idea of the amazing view from our hay ride!

There were plenty of deer and elk to photograph along the ride.
Gorgeous Sunset~

I wish Noah's flash had gone off. This is the kitty that lives at the lodge and he was so beautiful and sweet. If you weren't paying him enough attention, he'd throw himself belly up at your feet. Noah was head over heels for him. I was half tempted to stow him away in our van and bring him home.
We enjoyed the hummingbirds eating out of the bird feeder.

This is the butterfly Todd caught for Noah and let him release it back outdoors again.
We rode bikes, hiked through the creek, took a hay ride, had a bonfire and made s'mores, all of the kiddos played tag and soccer in the dark by the light of the moon and the bonfire. We all slept in, imagine that!!! And we ate good, played games, and just relaxed all weekend. The boys agreed it was one of their favorite weekends. We're really hoping to bring the rest of our family there sometime.

Looks like a wonderful place for a fun family get away. I am sure it will be a treasured memory for your whole family. I do wish it had been warmer for you.

For all you did-the cooler weather may have worked better-can you image 95 degrees???? Glad you all had fun-loved Noah's view on things.
