When we first got there, Christian said, "Mom, did we spend our Disney Land money on this?" Picture his nose scrunched up a bit.
When we left he said, "Can we spend our Disney Land money and come again this summer?"
The schedule roughly, goes like this.
Classes - Kids go with other kids their age and do crafts, swimming, games, etc. Parents have Education Week type classes, crafts, pottery, hiking, ropes courses, or whatever you feel like doing.
Lunch - with time to spare for free time. My kids usually wanted to fish for free time.
Family time - They have various evening activities or you can do your own thing. Frontier Night, Family Dance, Family Games (Aspen Follies) and a fireside activity with skits and such.
It was so relaxing and we met great people and ate great food. It doesn't get much better than that.
Glenn took a pottery class in which he was the only student.
The studio was over the river and I soon decided that it was the most beautiful spot in Aspen Grove.
Here is the view from the pottery studio looking up the river.
Add the sound of rushing water and it really is amazing.
Some other things that Glenn and I did were hiking to Stewart Falls, making wooden pens, ropes courses, golf simulation, spiritual classes, badminton, and just sitting in the shade and talking.
I thoroughly enjoyed target shooting with BB Guns and doing archery. It turns out that I like to shoot things.

This was our cabin. We loved it. Even when I look at it now, my heart is happy.
We made good memories that weekend.
