We didn't have any place to put the camera to use the timer at the top of Chimney Rock, so we took two pictures, one with PC and the kids and one with me and the kids.
Monday night we went to the activities center at the resort for s'mores. We had gone Saturday night for the ice cream social too. Can you see our sunburns? Yep, we forgot to put on sunscreen! Tink got the worst of it. Her forehead, nose, and ear even blistered! (Today when she went back to school, she told people that she fell out of a bus, and they believed her. It does look pretty bad now that it is healing. Poor kid.) PC went to the store and got some aloe vera, solarcaine, and advil for relief. We didn't forget to put sunscreen on again that week!
Tuesday was the coldest day we had while there. We spent most of it relaxing. We were all pretty sore from the hike the day before.
Wednesday we made it to the hike we had meant to go to on Monday, which was along the Piedra River. It was gorgeous! Pretty muddy though. Then we took another trail that goes to these ravines with ice in them, called Ice Cave Ridge. That trail was pretty snowy, which cleaned off most of the mud from our shoes. Again, the whole area was just gorgeous.
That night, I convinced everyone to go to Boogie Bingo at the activities center. No one was thrilled about going, but we talked them into it. They all had a blast! Minnie won the second game, Goofy won the third, and then a few games later, Minnie won again. When you won, they turned on music and everyone dances while you "boogie" over to the prize table and get your prize. Goofy got a big mac truck that hauls cars inside it. Minnie got a crossword puzzle book, and the second time she won, she let Bucko go up to get a prize. He got a LED clip-on light. In the end, they let all the kids get a prize, even if they hadn't won, so Tink ended up with a headband and Bucko went back since he hadn't technically won and got a big thing of Gaterade. And since Minnie didn't get to collect her second winning, she got a glittered pen to go with her crossword puzzles. As we were leaving, Bucko apologized for not wanting to go. They all had a good time. (It helped that there were a lot of older people who just loved, and spoiled, the kids there! I love Bingo because older people gravitate to playing it and I love it!)
Thursday was our last day in Pagosa Springs. We took the kids to the pool again in the morning and did the hot tub again that night. In the afternoon, we went downtown and walked along the river. They have the hot springs flowing into the river along decorative waterfall creations alongside the river. It was hot to the touch and smelled of sulfer. We stopped by the park again and they had the mini-golf course open too, so we let the kids play mini-golf. It was so nice that the resort had all these things available to us for free. It made it easy to find things to do.
