We had planned to stay at a house that John's brother's family stayed in last December, but when we got to the rental agency, they had upgraded us to a different rental. Evidently the people staying at our original house wouldn't leave. Who does that? Our upgraded house was REALLY nice. This was the view from the front porch.
This particular tubing hill has a tow line that pulls you up the hill in your tube. I like it--all play, no work! The last time we tubed at this particular hill was eight years ago to the day! My kids were soooooooooo little but they still remember it.
We also did a little shopping, a lot of eating, worked a puzzle, played games, and watched some football. It was a really relaxing time!
John's shoulder/arm starting hurting really badly the morning after we arrived and he was in pain pretty much all week. Before we packed up to head home yesterday he agreed to let me take him to the ER. We thought it might be his rotator cuff, but the doctor seemed to think it was a pinched nerve and sent him home with a prescription. He's still pretty miserable but hopefully the meds will start to calm that nerve down soon. He's a tough guy--even skied with us though he was in pain--so it's hard to see him hurting! Not the way he'd hoped to start the new year.
We're happy to be back home, but it sure is hard to say goodbye to the mountains. It's so peaceful and relaxing up there and we loved spending time with our family!
