1st Annual Nydegger "Shinanigans at the Dell"

All because two people fell in love takes on a new meaning after this weekend. My dad called us a couple of weeks ago, and said that he was able to reserve the Lodge at their Stake property, and our family was going to have an overnight adventure. These two people have taught me so much! In this post I want to talk about the FUN!
Let me also say it is a very LONG post.

During our adventure, there was alot of this...

and alot of this...a little scary I know!! Be assured that no children were hurt during the snapping of this shot...just a fajita burrito from Barbacoa.

We had a talent show with many talents shared.

The kids went night sledding. What a blast! They were out there forever, and are all now sick. :)

We did alot of visiting

Played lots of games

Shelly and her "Jazz Hands". Mom had found Mel's old dance costume, and brought it for her to take home. So cute, and so TINY!

I even got a chance to wear the new footie jammies that Abby gave me for my birthday.


A little indoor football, and a mean game of 500 were played.

The next morning dad made the kids letter pancakes, and the adults his famous belgium waffles.....YUM!

After breakfast, the grandkids (except for Landon who had croupe) went on a block hunt.

What a haul....

They all got to cash their blocks in for a prize.

Luke just wanted to play with the blocks.

Checking out eachothers prizes...waiting for what was next...

YUP!! The zipline, and who do you ask went first??? GRAMMA!!!! Wahoo!! I know that she is glad that she did it, but I think she tinkeled in her pants a lil. ;)

Karson loved the zipline. I was very proud of how brave he was. He even remembered to open his eyes on the 2nd and 3rd time.

The only thing I would change is that Mark and Cori already had tickets for the Polar Express, and were not able to be there until late Friday night. They were missed. We (the daughters) have all decided that this really needs to be a new tradition. The memories made will last forever.

P.S. Gramma even took a sled run down the hill. I do have video, but was not sure she wants me to post such a thing. I could use it as blackmail... :)
