If you look closely, you can see our "home" for the weekend through the trees :)
Our view from the balcony
Mia loved our vacation so much that she slept through most of it :)
Don't mind Eric.... he's just relaxing in a few feet of snow :)
Oh you know, just eating treats instead of smiling for a picture!
We got to escape real life for the weekend and hangout with my family and enjoy the snow! My parents got a cabin last year and we had so much fun, I think this has become a yearly tradition? I have to admit, I'm totally okay with it :)
The weekend started out a little iffy for us. We packed everything in the car (when I say everything, I mean everything plus the kitchen sink! It is insane how much more you have to pack with a baby) and headed out! Half way up the mountain a storm turned into a white out. We were creeping along just fine until someone stopped in the middle of the road to put chains on their tires. We had to stop and instantly lost traction, scary! We slid backwards until Eric was able to get the car to swing around, and we drove back down the mountain. We got home and switched everything over to the truck and tried to go up the mountain again :) By the time we got to the cabin, the storm had passed and my whole family made it safely!
We all enjoyed a beautiful Friday boardin' down the mountain! My mom stayed at the cabin and watched Mia all weekend. Eric and I loved our time together and I have no doubt that my mom loved having Mia all to herself :) Another storm rolled in on Saturday which resulted in the most insane powder! I've never snowboarded in anything like it before..... it was amazing!! When we weren't out in the snow, we were playing games, playing with Mia and eating food. It really was a perfect weekend together!
When it came time to go home on Sunday (booooo for going back to the real world) we had to drive through another white out! Thank goodness we had the truck, we wouldn't have made it down the mountain otherwise! The storm and roads were so bad that they closed the road and my parents were stranded at the cabin for a few hours. But thankfully, we all eventually made it home safely!
I can't wait for next year... we'll be making snowmen and snow angels with Mia :) I'm sad to see her grow so quickly but excited for the fun that we will have together!
