As you guys know from Joe’s guest post, we were headed to a weekend away in the Poconos with friends for the past few days.
Sarah and Dan (hi guys!) were nice enough to host 12 of us at Dan’s parent’s cabin. They did an awesome job of planning the weekend and we all had a blast.
We all arrived in the early evening and relaxed with some drinks and a game of LCR. Have you ever played this? It’s a really fun dice game that is great for large groups.
We all slept in on Saturday morning and woke up to the beautiful views of the mountains. I love the quiet calm feeling of the cabin’s location.
Breakfast sandwiches, coffee, and juice were consumed.
A little while later the guys headed to the slopes for some boarding and skiing on icy terrain. A few of us girls headed out for some exercise.
My friend Sue and I ran 4 miles and I kept going for another 2.5 after that. It was cold out, but I was feeling good and the scenery was beautiful.
Saturday night was the highlight of the trip for me. Sarah and Dan planned an awesome murder mystery game for all of us to play. It was called “Murder in the Snow” and we all played different characters.
I was a German speed skater with a really bad attitude.
Halfway through the game though, the power went out! We all thought it was part of the game, but it wasn’t. The rest of the game was played by candlelight, which was actually kind of fun.
The party raged on until about 4:30am..I lasted until around 3:30.
Needless to say, yesterday was spent getting some rest, and using all of my effort to get some schoolwork done.
I can’t believe the weekend is over already! Back to school tomorrow!
How did you spend the long weekend?
Have you ever done a murder mystery?
