...As mentioned, the drive from camping to Greer lodge was disastrous. Rue screamed for most of it, We didn't get lunch, I cried on several occasions, we had several camp dishes fall out of the back when we stopped in Show Low and shattered, Heber has no grocery real grocery store, oh and did I mention that it was that time of the month (sorry if that's too much info to share, but that was just puts into perspective my emotional stability)... Two and a half hours felt like torture! We finally arrived only to find out that the Greer Lodge people would not let us go to our cabin yet because the rest of the party wasn't there yet. SERIOUSLY! I wanted to smash something! So, I took my screaming kids and decided to let them pay for not letting us in. We sat right there in their little check-in room and my kids either screamed/cried or ran around touching everything. I didn't even bother to restrain them - it was just one of those special times. It turned out ok and we lived. Family showed up and we finally got settled.
This was probably my favorite moment of the whole week! Keith and I sneaked away for 30 minutes while our kids were both asleep and played horseshoes. We are both TERRIBLE but I always love spending time with my best friend! We had fun learning to play the game together.
