Retreat!!! - Day 2

Day 2 of the retreat was the first full day for everyone. We started off the morning by checking out the Langurs munching on rose bushes... they loved them!
Later in the day we had some team time and did a fun team photo scavenger hunt! Here is our team's flag :) We called ourselves the "Dilli Pickles" :)
This was part of the scavenger hunt - someone doing a hand-stand :) Our pregnant team member did the hand stand :) haha! Go Amberley!
We were in a tiger reserve area for the retreat. There were tigers all around. The day before we left to come there was a big article on the front page of the paper about a man-eating tiger on the lose. Two of the people killed were within a kilometer from where we were staying!!! (about a half mile!) and one other was about 6 miles from where we were staying. Crazy hunh? We saw tiger paw prints REALLY close to our resort! This guard (below) had a gun to protect the horses (and people) from the tigers. They found tiger prints next to the horses the day before we came, so they weren't taking any chances. There was an armed guard there 24-7.
Aashini got to go on a horse ride. She did a lot better than the last time she went (when we were in Thailand and she screamed the whole time). She had a great time!! (I think riding with Adam made it more fun for her) :)
She got to ride with her buddies Gracey, Joy and Faith, so that made it even more fun for her!
They rode all around and even went through the water - it was cool!
That night we painted diyas to decorate our tables at Thanksgiving (and for fun). Aashini had a blast!
Everyone made really cool diyas!
The nights were really fun. We got to hang out by the campfire - it was great! The kiddos played games and had tons of glow sticks! It was so fun!
