A couple weeks before Christmas I got a call from my friend Missie (good friend who used to live here in FW but
So on December 28th we packed up the car, took Lucy to our friend's house (the Hills' family from church kept her for us, thanks so much!), and headed north east. We arrived to the cabin about four hours later and it was so nice!!!
Vacationing with the Rodgers' is awesome...they are much like us. We are go-with-the-flow, sleeping-in, must have showers and Diet Cokes (that part is me) kind of people, and so are they! :-) Another family that the Rodgers' know camped in their fifth-wheel nearby, too, and they were great! We each brought stuff and prepared a dinner meal and went to dinner in town once, spent time hiking, playing in the snow, fishing (Randy and Scott, not the rest of us), reading in the company of the wood burning stove, playing games, and just relaxing. It was AWESOME.
|Hat bought just for the trip...it was COLD!|
|Exploring the Beaver's Bend National Forest Museum. Got us some oxen.|
|Kendra and her bestie, R, did photo shoots of each other. Nice composition, R!|
|Checking out the Dam. There was some fun had saying we were on the Dam Road.|
|Deer right outside the car window in the park.|
|Kendra LOVES to eat snow...here she is begging to take a bite.|
|On our hike by the river.|
|Randy found a geo-cache!!! Just scooted a rock over and said, "Oh, here it is!"|
|We took a hippie rubber ducky from the cache, and left behind some neat pennies stamped with a cross that Scott brought with him.|
|Proof that I was actually there. (My arm is awkward because I'm holding a branch back from whacking my kid in the face)|
|We had one short-lived campfire--it was raining and cold.|
|Missie and I with our s'mores!|
|Livin' large on NYE---noise makers and Uno! What more could you want???|
We had a blast...THANK YOU Rodgers family!!!
