YMCA of the Rockies

IMG_0136

If you read here, you know that my family loves (LOVES) the YMCA of the Rockies. This year they invited us up, and gave us the most beautiful cabin we have ever stayed in up there. The cabin was the 'Traditions' cabin, and it was incredible.  'Traditions' is a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom cabin, with a full kitchen. One of our favorite parts of this cabin, is that it had a TV and DVD player, during the day we don't watch TV or movies, but at night we play board games at the table while we … [Read more...]

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella Denver

Cinderella Denver

From the moment the show started, my eight year old daughter was sitting on the edge of her seat.

She answered a trivia question correctly and chose a download of the music for her prize. … [Read more...]
