La Escondida

La Escondida


What to say about this magical place?
It belongs to my parents.

It has been a long time coming that we make the trip up there.
This happened the day after Thanksgiving.
We stayed from Friday to Sunday.
The kids loved it.

The weather wasn't so great that time around.
But this time it was perfect.
Again, the kids kept busy from the time we got there to the time we left.

As a matter of fact,
they are still in recovery mode.

They rode & drove the tractor.
Picked up rocks.
Helped build a rock wall.
Cleared some brush.
Built fires in the pot belly stove.
Ate food cooked off a wrought iron skillet.
Pet the doggies.
Looked at the stars.
Played the guitar.
Sang by the fire.
Ate ribs cooked in the fire pit.
Helped clean.
Slept in bunk beds.

Yes, it was amazing for them.


The casita...it continues to grow! 


Gabi finally got her turn on the tractor & LOVED it!


Sofi driving the tractor alone.
Abu was NOT helping!


Ian loved helping Abu with the shovel.
Kept him busy all afternoon!


They were pretending to be "adults" and getting gas.
Don't ask me...it was all them!


The photo of the weekend, hands down.
Gabi literally fell asleep on Abu on the tractor.


Yep, that's a photo of me.
(GASP)


What we got to see Saturday night.
The perfect sunset to end the day.

Now it is back to reality.
