They kept telling us to come back and check in half an hour to see if they would start up. So we walked around, looking at all the pretty nature sights and taking photos.
I got some great shots of the kids!
Alex and I were sitting on a rock, but Alex says it looks like he's sitting on my lap here. Hehe!
After a while, we went into the deli where Alex got a peanut butter shake and I got a Summertime Bliss smoothie. Sabrina, our very picky eater, didn't like anything, but I had already planned on that and had brought a KitKat that she ate happily while we enjoyed our treat.
Alex's shake blends in with his khaki pants.
My smoothie has coconut, pineapple, strawberries, white chocolate and strawberry ice cream. It was yummmmmmmy!
We hung out inside the general store for a while.
Then after a couple of hours, it became obvious that since it was getting cloudier instead of clearer, we wouldn't be able to go on the lift.
We'll have to go back and try again some day soon when Elisa is spending the day with a friend. Even though we didn't get to go up on the lift, it was really fun and so beautiful.
