Escape to the Mountains

We decided Wednesday night to take the kids up to Tamarack for the weekend. We arrived yesterday afternoon and the girls all went for a swim in the pool at the lodge.
We drove into McCall last night for dinner at Chapala's Mexican Restaurant. This is the first picture we have taken with the whole family since Susanna and Kerrie came home. We had fun in our condo last night relaxing and playing Taboo after the little girls went to bed.
This morning we drove into McCall again for breakfast at The Pancake House. This is one of our favorite things to do when we come up here.
This cinnamon roll was as big as the plate! Kiley shared it with Susanna and Kerrie.
We spent the afternoon on Lake Cascade. Kiley is wakeboarding. I thought all the other buns looked cute. Kiley, Hannah and Mom tried to swim (with a boat escort of course) to an island in the lake, but it was a lot further away than it looked in the beginning. We did get some good exercise for a while though. Kiley, Hannah and Paige had a great time tubing. We even got Susanna to go out for a spin. She says, "No speed, Dad."
I take this same shot of the girls every year. The two new additions make it even cuter this year.
Only a few wanted to actually jump off the boat.

Tonight after dinner we went for a hike/walk. It is so beautiful and smells so good up here. It is great to get away and just hang out with our family.
