I ended up driving to Utah with my faux fam this year for thanksgiving. We stayed in an awesome cabin up in the snowy woods. I felt like I was in some sort of Lifetime christmas movie.
This lake was just down a stretch from the cabin.
Martinellis on ice.
We had two turkeys this year... one from the oven and one from the BBQ. My favorite was the BBQ.
Good guys vs. the bad guys. The good guys won!
There were about 15 people cooking in the kitchen so I just hung around and took the pix.
After we slept for a bit... it was time for a hike. :-)
It was a very cold day as there were no clouds. Very very pretty though.
Ebby is the pro hiker now.
We take her too many places for her not to be awesome.
The hike was supposed to be a quick half mile jaunt to this "really cool" ice cave. Sounds awesome right? An ice cave?! Yeah, lets do this!! After the hike, the plan was to go sledding/snowboarding.
We had a 3 month old, a 3 year old, and a 6 year old so it was supposed to be a quick hike.
However someone made a mistake and it ended up being much longer than a half mile.
Several miles later we ran into some bunny tracks.
Then some deer tracks.
Saw some cool looking trees.
Many many miles later we see the sign!!
Yes!! We made it!! We are so close!!!
Tired but almost there!
So we hike a mile more.
There it is! The ice cave!!
The Ice Cave.
Really? This is it?
Ebbs looking around for a different cave.
I don't know what they thought it might look like... but I was imagining some sort of beautiful crystal overhang with loads of icicles hanging down, that created a small structure that you could walk into.
Instead it was a dirt pit with logs sticking out. Hm. Life.
We ran back.
It was a great hike!
Ebby was done by the end. She just wanted to sit.
I loved this white tree against the blue.
She found a tree just her size.
It was great to just relax after.
What a great time.
Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving too.
