A Snowmobiling We'll Go

Get you snow gear ready, we're going sledding! Last week was our annual Manwaring cabin trip.

Legs, legs everywhere. The stairs provide the perfect place for eating dinner.

A mad dash in your snow boots and swimsuit

to make it to the hot tub for a nice soak.

Sledding in the meadow = good times and cold toes.

I let Halle drive a little this year (while I was on with her). I think she's got a bit of dare devil in her. She was all about speed. Makes me nervous to let her go by herself in the coming years.

We decided that Alyssa and Payson were old enough to drive their own machine on the trail ride this year. They both did great, and it's fun to see them feeling comfortable on their own.

Some of the cousins at Warm Springs, which is anything but warm.

And just what were they looking at? Trout, 3 feet long, I kid you not.

Me....ughhh...I really hate pictures of myself from the snowmobile trip. But this one is semi-decent so I'll get over my vanity and post it for future posterity to learn where their incredible good looks came from.

That looks like so much fun, I need a vacation like that in the winter it would make the snow a lot more fun.

Deanna said...

Looks like so much fun! I miss my yearly snowmobiling trips home. If my parents would just quit going to AZ in the spring!......

Looks fun! COLD BUT Fun!. I really hope we can arrange to come see you all this summer.

Elena, Looks like fun! I recognize the bridge with the trout. My wife's family has a cabin near Mack's Inn. Unfortunately it's only a summer cabin though so I've never been there during the winter so I haven't had the privilege of running naked through the snow to a warm hot tub. :) So where is the Manwaring cabin?

Kate is cracking me up in that last picture! We so cannot relate to all that snow. And a snowmobile? I wonder if my kids will ever have that thrill??

Trish said...

Oh, stop. That's a BEAUTIFUL picture of you! You are lovely!

Love the mad dash in the swim suit.

And I LOVE Kate in the last picture trying to see over her warm duds!

You know I am jealous of any and all good times had in the snow! What fun!
