We were desperate to get away for a weekend! So we decided to go to the YMCA Trout Lodge retreat. Carolyn had been there before for work, but I'd never been and neither had the kids. It was perfect! It's only 90 minutes from home, and we went during a beautiful, sunny weekend when it wasn't crowded at all. It felt like we had the place to ourselves, and the staff all got to know us and the kids.
We did so much! Archery, tether ball, a pontoon tour, hiking, a campfire, arts and crafts, kayaking, miniature golf, and more. We returned home relaxed and happy to have spent a weekend all together as a family.
The boys got to each steer the pontoon!
