Manwaring Cabin Trip '08

Thanks to Becky for loaning me some cabin trip pictures. This is such a fun tradition with Jarom's family and my kids look forward to it every year. We rent 3 cabins to house 36-40 people and play and relax for three fun days.

As I said before, the major mishap this time around was the porch collapsing. Aside from having to move to a different cabin, there was no harm done to anybody. I can't say the same for the cabin however.
The way the patio should have looked. Check out all the snow on top!

No more patio and porch!

Me standing where the path to the front door should have been.

Alyssa digging out a snowcave that Ben started for the kids.

Carter all wrapped up and ready to go for a ride.

Kate warming her hands up in my giant snowmoblie mittens. Kate loved riding the machines and being pulled behind. When she first got on one, she couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry, but then it was pure love.

Let's get this party started! Halle and Misssy waiting for the tube to take off.

Becky taking the grand kids for a ride.

When we're not playing in the snow we like to hang out and play lots of games in the cabins.
Playing Bingo in the cabin.

Owen and Ogden unwinding in the hot tub. It feels so nice to sit in a 102 degree hot tub with 12 degree temps. all around you! The bad part is the 3 barefoot-on-the-snow-and-ice steps you have to take to get back inside the cabin.

What a fun time we had!

Sounds like you've had fun! We're five and o - for not driving Tanner to sleep at night...I haven't had the time I'd like to post, and check out everyones posts, but at least he's going to bed like a 'normal' person, now!

Love the header! SOOOO CUTE!

Elena, cool pictures. Thanks Becky. I loved the one of you in the snow! I keep forgetting to take pictures over here in LaGrande (Mark wants you to know it's LaGrande, not Mecham. I laughed when I read that). Anyway, good blog.

btw, it's cool to scroll down while reading your posts. The "wallpaper" as I call it looks pretty good. A nod to Jarom. :)

Looks like so much fun! Crazy the amount of snow every place around here has been getting! I love the picture of Becky taking all the kids for a ride--too cute!

Deanna- Way to go! It should get easier and easier for you.

Miki- Yes, I know you're in LaGrande, but for some reason it is saying Mecham on my site meter. Is that close to LaGrande? Sometimes it just gets cities that are close by. Maybe it's not you guys. Yes, TAKE PICTURES of everyone!! I want to put faces with all these names.

Jennifer- Yes SO much needed snow this year. We're grateful for it and annoyed with it all in the same breath. Can't wait to see what McCall has in store for us.

Cute new blog Elena, love it. I do have to say that I have never seen that much snow before in one place! YIKES! It kind of makes my toes cold just looking at it! Glad you enjoyed yourself!

So awesome! Your kids look so cute all bundled up!

THAT is a.l.o.t. of snow!!
Hot tub sounds grand... even if you have to brave those three frosty steps.
