Marriage Retreat

18 days and counting till our family goes to Bear Trap Ranch for a marriage counseling retreat! They have free childcare so the girls will be there while DH and I attend a seminar and then we get to spend the day with each other. There is lots of stuff to do there too. Here are a few of the things we found on their website to do together:

Coffee Tasting

We carry a selection of premium single-origin and blended coffees, locally roasted to highlight their unique characteristics. We would love the opportunity to do a coffee tasting for your group. Experience the “wow” of coffee when paired with pastries, chocolate, cheeses, mushrooms, nuts, and more. This educational time is enjoyable and tasty. Plan 1-2 hours... some groups have lots of questions and love to interact with our in-house barista.

Orienteering is the sport of navigation with map and compass. It's easy to learn, but always challenging. The object is to run, walk, ski, or mountain bike to a series of points shown on the map, choosing routes—both on and off trail—that will help you find all the points and get back to the finish in the shortest amount of time. The points on the course are marked with orange and white flags and punches, so you can prove you've been there. Each “control” marker is located on a distinct feature, such as a stream junction or the top of a knoll.

Hay Rides

Load up 30 people on a trailer with a pile of hay and take an old-fashioned hay ride to Duffields. Overlook the city of Colorado Springs... great memory–making moments and pictures.

Snow Tubing

Quick! Grab a snow tube and come join a friend on the tubing run for hours of enjoyment.

Snow Shoeing

Get a pair of snow shoes and head out for a quiet walk though the mountains enjoying the beautiful mountain views.

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a great activity for people of all ages, Bear Trap has skates to borrow if you need them.

Our Oldest/Newest Furbaby addition!

This is Jenny. My sister found her on the streets as a 6 month old kitten. She was scavenging for food around the dumpster of our apartment in 1999. Well Lynnette took her in and has had her ever since. Her and her DH with her 2 boys recently moved to a much bigger/much needed place. But the downside was they didn't allow cats so Jenny needed a place to stay. At age 11 years old she was too old and too much of our family to be adopted out to someone else. My mom took her for a week but during that week her never hurt a fly puppy tried to "eat/attack" Jenny. So we brought her home with us. Our two kitties have been fine with her but we think the ranking wars have begun. Xena always stays in Destiny's room which Jenny has tried to claim so they have peed in her room. Grrrrr. So I told Lynnette that hopefully they will stop if not then she will have to hide Jenny back at her place.
