We had such a wonderful time in Breckenridge for the Alleman Family Reunion. I hardly know where to start. I have posted just 40 of the 300 pictures we took, and we have several hundred more coming from Alison. It was probably the best vacation that we have ever taken and we want to do it again soon!
Getting to Colorado was a little eventful, we lost a chunk of our tire tread in Oklahoma and drove 800 miles on it until we got to Denver and were able to replace the tire. Needless to say, the trip home was much smoother than the trip there!
Jeremy's parents rented this amazing house that we all stayed in. It was three stories, had 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 3 living rooms, a hot tub and more than enough room for all 25 of us to spread out and enjoy ourselves. It even has ski out access (too bad there was no snow!) It was 70 degrees and below the entire time we were there! We were the second family to arrive and the girls instantly took to exploring their home for the next five days.
Isn't he handsome?!
Jeremy's horse was named Willie
The scenery was beautiful. We went over ten miles through the ski trails and national forest. We were able to see things we would never have otherwise.
Friday night we had a Just Dance Party with the kids.
They were having fun dancing together and with Grandpa, but Jason decided that it was not quite enough fun.
So he decided to surprise the kids with a visit from Gumby!!!
The boys played pool and foosball, a lot, and Kirsten started to learn to play as well.
And of course, the brothers
Our A-Team Reunion shirts
Saturday night was skit night. We divided into groups, gave each group a bag of random items and each person a funny family quote to incorporate into the skit. I have to say that Jeremy has a very creative family!
After we got kids to bed, the adults spent hours playing Minute to Win It Games. Our camera was in our room with the kids, so we do not have pictures. I will have to get those from Alison! I will say again that Jeremy's family is hilarious and I think I laughed harder than I ever have in my life!
After naps, we went as a family on the Gondola. It goes up the mountain from Downtown to Peaks 8 and 9. It was a beautiful view and fun to see spots that we had gone for pictures and riding the past two days.
Monday morning we packed up and headed out. It was hard to leave and say goodbye to everyone. I am so grateful to have married into such an amazing family. They are a strength and support to our family and such a blessing to my two wonderful little girls. I am so glad that they were able to have time to bond with their cousins and aunts and uncles.
