It was another wonderful night for a family camp out at Windsor Lake! No thunderstorms this year though! This was our 3rd year attending this fun event and the first time that Sutton brought along a sibling. However, Cyrus I don't think was quite up to the entire event of staying the night in a tent so we cut out a little early to sleep comfortably in our own cozy beds. The feature presentation was "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", a much improvement over last years "R.V." with Robin Williams, which though it was funny, I don't really think the kids enjoyed it as much. We arrived shortly after they started the BBQ so we quickly found our spot with chairs in tow to where we would be hanging out most of the evening. After grabbing some dinner we went over to the docks while some friends gave their first try to canoeing. I would've been more apt for us to take on a paddle boat, but did not trust Cyrus in a canoe. I'm certainly not the fastest duck on the water should he decide to stand or rock the boat. So while our friends were enjoying the scenery from the water we trekked over to the 5th Street Malt shop which has become another one of our traditions that we partake in during this special event. By the time we returned from the malt shop the movie was just getting underway. I have to say the city of Windsor has done a wonderful job once again in organizing this event! I only hope that there are more families that attend it in the future so they don't have to miss out on some good 'ole family time, outside, away from t.v.'s, computers and video games!
I have been married to a truly amazing man for almost eight years. Jeff and I met when I was in high school and I can't imagine my life without him. Five years ago we made our home in Windsor, Colorado and after various events over the last couple of years, we know that this is truly "home". It is an amazing community that gives us a little taste of small town living that we left behind in Nebraska. We have been blessed with six wonderful children, including two sets of twins! (Our family had ample testosterone until the arrival of our daughters this last December). I worked at an Early Childhood Learning Center for 7 years and now am primarily a stay at home mom. Though there are good days as well as bad, I know that this is where God intends me to be. I feel blessed everyday that I get to see and be part of so many wonderful (as well as entertaining) moments in my childrens lives.
