snapshots of my weekend in pagosa springs...

Over the weekend, I went on a mini-vacation with my mom, sister & grandma to Pagosa Springs, Colorado!! 
We are so blessed to have friends from church that allowed us to use their timeshare for a very affordable price! 
It was a beautiful place right on a pretty little lake & there were so many fun things to do!

 Every morning, my sister & I woke up early to go on a walk around the lake & to watch the sunrise.
The air was cold, but it felt so good to be outside in such a beautiful place.
The timeshare we stayed in had a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms & a deck.
There was even a window seat looking out on the lake!
We had so much great food over the weekend... For breakfast we had Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls, which you buy frozen from the grocery store... they are easy & so good!! Also, we had sausage & kale soup for dinner! This is one of my favorite soups!! (click here for the recipe) It was so nice to have a place to stay that had a full kitchen!
They had a huge pool & hot tub! We went twice & had the whole pool to ourselves! Amazing! 
We also went to check out the Pagosa Hot Springs, which has several naturally hot mineral pools, ranging in temperatures. 
I don't have any good photos of that, because we went at night, but it was a fun & interesting experience!

The resort had lots of other little things to do like a s'mores social, mini-golf, & tennis! Lots of fun!!

There is a really great place in Pagosa Springs called "The Choke Cherry Tree". They sell amazing homemade caramels, 
which is what we went there to buy... but we ended up getting so much more! I will probably share more about them soon!

We also went hiking & saw so many beautiful sights over the weekend!
I have many more photos to share, that I took with my DSLR, so I will share those soon...
It was such a beautiful weekend that God blessed us with! I am so thankful!!

    Sounds like the four of you had an amazing time together and that you had some
    time to yourself, in peace and relaxation. These photos are so beautiful, seems
    like a treasure of a place.
