Pokagon

We took off on Saturday after I ran the kart at PRMC and Andy did some more snow blowing.  Our first stop was lunch in Auburn at Cebollas...gosh I love that place.  We got to Pokagon State Park around 3 and checked into our room in the Inn.  The boys were so excited...they just LOVE staying in a hotel.  We got all bundled up and headed outside.  The line for  the toboggan run wasn't too long so we jumped on the chance and rented a sled.   Grant wasn't so sure...and Seth was excited until we got to the top and were getting on the sled.  He gave me the look of fear and said he wasn't going.  I said, too bad...too late...hop on!

Well....it was a hit for everyone.  Both boys loved it and asked to go again.   It was a beautiful day...the snow was falling and it wasn't too cold.  Thankfully, Andy was "Superman" and carried the sled up the hill.   We did the run 2x on Saturday.
 We got some hot chocolate and sat by the firepit.


and explored around the inn...watching others go on the run and sitting by the lake
 

We came back to our room, got warmed up and headed to dinner at the Inn.  After dinner, we just relaxed...playing games (I love that all 4 of us can play Qwirkle together (okay, so I help grant, but he is getting it...sure beats Candyland).   Seth and I started working on a puzzle while Andy and Grant colored.

Andy and grant ended up going back to the room...and Seth and I stayed up till 12:30 getting that darn puzzle done.    It was so frustrating...of the 550 pieces...at least 50 were missing at the end.  I was going to take a picture of it...but they tore it down by the time I got back there in the morning. 

Sunday morning we got up and went swimming first thing...ate a yummy breakfast buffet at the lodge and then headed back to the toboggan run for 2 more trips down.   Besides the walk back up the hill with grant, it was super fun.

It was  a nice little get-away.  The weather was perfect to enjoy the outdoors at the state park and just staying in the Inn had a calming effect (even though the lobbies were packed with lots of family Christmas parties)  That's okay...we found our own little nook and had fun...just the 4 of us.
