Easter 2016- Blue Mountain getaway

I'm back from a long and lovely, relaxing and hectic Easter weekend away to Blue Mountain Resorts with some family friends. I'll let a few too many pictures do the talking. 

Good Friday road-trip and a burger stop off with our crew. It was a long winding and oh so scenic drive.

We walked around the village when we got there, had some warm beverages and shared a donut four ways.

So many quaint, pretty shops and such a beautiful place. 

We hung out with our crew after that, walked around a bit more, had a few snacks and beverages and played games and cards before calling it a night.

Notice the birdhouse on the light post. 

The next day was a rainy one so we hung out indoors a bit, headed to the pool and hot tub and then a big group of us went out to dinner at Alice and Olivieri. 

 The kids got a table to themselves and were very pleased with the situation! So was the waiter-- as he totally upsold them Shirley Temples, $15 mac n' cheese and $5 smores.

 On Sunday morning, the Easter bunny found us in Blue Mountain. After collecting their sugary treats, the kids had breakfast and went to another hunt. Some of the adults went to the Scandinave Spa for very relaxing bath treatments and a massage.

Easter Sunday lunch, some more cards and another walk in the village ensued. The kids then watched a movie, got fed and bathed before we heading home later that night.

This dress was her sisters so I was so glad to have gotten another wear out of it!

These two get along soooo well!

On Monday, us four woke up late. I unpacked, D taught C to play chess and in the afternoon we went to get our eyes checked-- spoiler alert, looks like two out of the three of us may be a bit near-sighted!

We then headed to the park, the toy store and a sushi dinner before heading home for an early night!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
