spring break, mountain style!

we are so lucky to be surrounded by generous friends and neighbors who invite us to their great mountain retreats.  usually, we've gotten away during the dog days of summer (and fall), but this time we went during spring break, and there was actually a little bit of snow.  
 this poor kid has inherited pink furry snow boots and pink gloves.  since this is likely his only snow day this year, we were not willing to make a more masculine investment.  

 the double-decker view from the family room of  this cabin is amazing.  me and my sore back enjoyed it very well during our stay.  
 some may have said, "there's not enough snow for a snow man." but these 4 proved them all wrong!

 here is our favorite activity up there, quad riding.  the scenery is too delicious not to explore.  and the quad gets us places we wouldn't otherwise be able to go.  we got stuck twice and lost 2 machines to repairs, but we still had an amazing time.  
 the girls had so much fun playing with Conner. 
 the quad takes us to such amazing places to hike and explore. 

 we got to see some cool Native American hieroglyphics.  
 love my boys!
 we rode to the top of a neighboring mountain for a fun and delicious picnic in the snow.  

 quad/rhino rides are also excellent for lulling nappers to sleep!
big thanks to the Whites for sharing their piece of heaven with us.  we love the opportunity to explore and play!
