and I thought the bugs were big at home!

Ah the mountains!

It was an interesting first day. 

The cabin is spectacular.  The view is magnificent.  The children are…not arguing. 

The kids (if I can still get away with calling them that) had a great first day at the cabin.  They were sufficiently thrilled that there is a regulation pool table, arcade games, five flat screen TVs, poker table, video game consoles, and a six person hot tub. 

The hot tub was enjoyed by everyone but the parents.

The kids and I played a few rounds of Texas Hold’em, and a rousing game of Scattergories—I won again!  My reputation as the Scattergories champion is still intact!

Mike and I spent the rest of our first day settling in and just enjoying the view.  We took pictures (which I will be adding to the member’s only gallery page tomorrow) we grilled burgers on the gas grill (Mike didn’t eat burgers for those of you that are paying attention) and we made two grocery store runs. 

After the sun went down, the rain started, and I have to tell you, I have no complaints about listening to the rain fall in the trees.  I have the doors open to my balcony, and I’m letting the cool damp air (and several hundred bugs I’m sure) blow into the room.  Don’t worry…I coated my skin in all natural bug repellent!

If this doesn’t relax me, I’m doomed! 

Until the next time…I’ll be relaxing!
