Sometimes it is quite necessary to get out of town and just go to the mountains. Lucky for us we live relatively close to a plethora of mountain ranges. We thought it would be fun to spend the long weekend at a cabin up near Twin Lakes, CO. We rented the coolest cabin on VRBO that was tucked nicely up nicely along a mountainside and only a 5 min drive from Twin Lakes and 20 min from Leadville. Since the kids didn’t have school on Friday, we headed up on Thursday evening and stopped at Rudy’s to eat dinner. We drove the Sienna and the 4Runner so we could do some off roading in Mike’s car. We got to the cabin a little after 9pm and although it was dark, we could tell that this would be a ton of fun for the weekend. It was an actual wood cabin with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Peter got his own room on the main level while all the girls joined us up in the loft. In the loft there was a bunkbed for the girls, a fun living area, a giant bed for me and Mike and a spacious bathroom area. Madeline slept in her little pack-n-play. The rest of the cabin was cozy and spacious. In the basement was a pool table and a foosball table with another set of bunkbeds. It wasn’t until morning that we saw how amazing the views were from the cabin. We woke up to the most amazing sunset and we didn’t even have to get out of bed to enjoy it because we could see it from the tall windows outlining the back of the cabin. The girls had fun in the morning grabbing their coats and exploring outside the cabin. There was a fun little firepit and lots of rocks to play on. We had a lazy morning and enjoyed stuffing our faces full of Mike’s amazing French toast before heading off on our first adventure!
