Day 50: Goodbye Zakopane

Sadly, we left Zakopane today. But, we made a few more memories before departing. 

This morning began with breakfast at the hotel. We then packed up the car, put on all of our cold gear, then walked to a nearby area filled with snow activities. 

We started out by going snow tubing. You get carried up to the top as you sit on an innertube, then you go down a fun and curvy slide. The adults and the kids loved it. 
Next, the younger boys rode snowmobiles. They had a lot of fun, but the track was very small and the time limit was pretty quick for each one. 

We then walked over to the ice castle and the boys went inside to look around. It was fun and very slippery! The girls hung back and talked a bit. 

We then walked back to the hotel, said our goodbyes, and got on the road. We had the best time this trip and I truly believe it's because we had friends with us. Don't get me wrong, we had family time and enjoyed that as well, but there was just a lot of time where Maddie and I would have been lost and bored had we not had great company. 

We had a long and eventful drive back. As we were driving the kids were eating snacks. At that point, Maddie decided to stick an entire Belvita wafer cookie in her mouth and she started gagging. I reached back, got the cookie and other pieces out, and she continued to cough. At this point, she throws up a little bit, most of which I catch. She was upset it was on her but I couldn't do anything but wait on Daniel to pull over and help us get cleaned up. Not long after that, she fell asleep. 
I love her cheeks! 

Leaving Zakopane was sad, but so incredibly beautiful. 
We made it home after dinner and got the car unpacked and showers taken. Lots to unpack tomorrow! Although we are sad to be home, we're so happy to be back in our own beds.
