Cozy my rosies

The sweetest haven on a cold frosty day. Crystal Hot Springs!!

Walking from the dressing room to the pool seemed unbearable, but so worth it!

Sweet, sweet, warm water, how I love thee.

Susan, Chels and me hanging out by the boiling hot water falls. Once you get used to the burn you can't leave it.

Three men in a tub

Jarom was splashing water on me so I told him to stop because - hello, I'm holding a camera. And what does he do? I looked up just in time to see him leaping at me.

Getting more wild! Yes the water is steaming but don't let that fool you. The air temp is a big fat 20. I walked over here to get everyone's picture, but my feet were dying on the cold ground so I thought I would wait in the water. I screamed like a baby. It was freezing! And not only that but the handle bar I grabbed to get the heck out of there was completely frozen over - whole thing. I stood there waiting and waiting for someone to come down, finally Mike did. I took the picture and hightailed it out of there. I later found out while I was thawing in the hot pool that the stairs going up to the slide are also totally frozen over. Those who made it to the top said it felt like they were walking on coals!

We were all very pleased and surprised with how much we thoroughly enjoyed it. We actually stayed for hours and only left because we got hungry.

Made it over to Brigham for some grub at the coolest old diner, Idle Isle. Vaulted ceilings, solid wood booths, one of those pianos that plays itself (kids really liked that, a ghost was playing it). Topped it off with a old fashioned malt. mmmmmmmm

Few days later. My favorite goobers, of course wearing their newest coolest T-shirts!

Wednesdate!! Matt and I have taken up going out every Wednesday with our O in tow. Me and O love to go pick up daddy and try new places.

Matt cracking up at Oey. Oey has decided that this is his most flattering face. I agree wholeheartedly. I love a scrunchy baby face.

Me and the goods. And yes I cut some bangs, only because I had a dream within a dream that it was meant to be. Sorry for the no make-up close up. Anywho. I gots to go. My pants are popping off from a dessert party.

Looks at those cute sassy bangs!!!!

Lisa said...

The hot springs look exhilarating! I would love to try that. The image of walking on hot coals was so descriptive, I can almost feel it.

So who watched your kids every Wednesday? I would love a regular date night, opposed to the quarterly schedule we're on now.

I can't believe how much you look like Dolly in those last couple of pics. Cute bangs!

Hey Lisa. We do lunch dates. So that is why we have O and then Jar and Bell are in school.

Lisa said...

What a neat arrangement!

Sarah said...

AMYYYY!!!!!! YOU look so so so adorable. That no makeup closeup is the most prettiest photo of any girl EVER!!!! I love your bangs! Wow, this looks like the best adventure! Oh I hope I get to head over there soon and partake of some more with you kids and kiddos.... I can just hear you screaming bloody murder when getting into the freezing cold water! It's such the opposite of every feeling I ever had at water...usually my feet are ACTUALLY on burning coals....or giant rocks that is - And it's 110 degrees outside! How fun to do the water thing backwards!
I have a tiny package coming for the kids. I have been meaning to send it for dayzzz, will do tomorrow. You heard we're moving back to Placerville? PERMANENTLY. FOREVER. Til I'm a little old lady! (And hopefully I will get to travel the world as well! Just make Hangtown my homebase, and Art begrudgingly has agreed!)
Love you. Just ate half a piece of Dulce De Leche cheesecake with Art at the Cheesecake Factory. I couldn't resist...............the other half is breakfast!
