Girls Weekend!!

Saturday we left for our annual girls weekend to celebrate my 2 nieces and my daughters birthdays.  We do this every year just to celebrate the girls in our family.  This year since I turned 50, my SIL bought some decorations and a crown for me too :)

We go to a beautiful big old resort that has gold, zip-lining, a huge obstacle course in the trees, plus the usual, pool, hot tub and sauna.  In the winter they have snowboarding, tubing, and skiing.  We drove up early so that my sister and daughter could do the obstacle course and zip-lining.  I opted out of both due to my knee, and I just didn't want to do it....it's a height thing and it just looked way to hard for me being this size.  While they were gone (3 hours)  I sat and read and just wandered around the Inn.  Later my SIL and nieces met up with us!  Here are some pictures of our fun weekend :)

Just a picture from the website to show you what the obstacle course looks like....Maybe someday I'll be able to do it.......



My daughter Blayne and my sister Connie, gearing up for the course!



Here we are in the hot tub.  My niece Alyssa is expecting so she just sat with her feet in and took the picture for :)   Note the male sitting among us ladies.....That is Trayton, my great nephew with his mom Ariel, no sitter for him so he was the first boy to infiltrate our girls weekend :)  He was an absolute sweetheart!! :)



At dinner....My SIL Julie, and sister Connie :) 



Little Trayton :) 



Nieces, Ariel and Alyssa :)
Sisterly love :) 



Me and Blayne :) 



Our toast to family and love!
CHEERS!!



Outside on the playground getting ready to go home.


We had such a wonderful time swimming, relaxing, talking, eating and drinking with a little bit of mischief of course :)  Girl time is something that I crave!
Spending time away from home, is just what we needed!  We are in all stages of life, and I learn something new from them all the time!!

  1. Love it! My BF and I sometimes have a weekend or a bit longer away together. We don't call it Girl's weekend, but I guess that's what it is. Anyway, we love it. Lori, I just noticed, I LOVE your hair! Is it natural, or do you have a perm?

    1. Oh thanks Debby, my hair has a natural wave to it, but I spice it up with moose which makes it more curly :)

  8. Looks like a wonderful weekend! I'd love to go zip lining someday too. Like you, I'm a bit afraid of heights and would be nervous about my weight right now. Someday!
