Kyle threw the car in park and came running into the house. It was Saturday morning and he was unusually cheerful from arriving home from weekend rounds. Come to discover, he had Sunday off. This month has been particularly challenging, with Kyle having four whole days off in the past six weeks (Welcome to residency, right?!). Needless to say, we were anxious to take advantage of this surprise! We deemed it a little Valentines Day getaway, loaded up the car and headed north to the cabin.
Nothing quite compares to the peacefulness of being in the woods, with only the sound of the wind wrestling through the trees and the crackling of the fireplace at your feet. The snow is untouched, perfect powder that in certain spots reveals the families of deer trying to survive the winter months. The air is refreshing, the woods calming.
You may recognize this view from here:
My dad and stepmom, and Kyle's parents met us at the cabin on Sunday. We ate way too much, watched deer, snowshoed and snowmobiled throughout the property. I discovered a new love for snowshoeing! Have you ever been? What a great way to get a workout in. I'm tempted to buy a pair.
To bad I can't train the dog to take pictures. We'd have a lot less of her and more of us! She does do a good job of showing what the majority of the trip was like though.
Each evening ended just like this; passing out on the couch while watching TV, with full bellies and fuller hearts.
This weekend was just what the doctor ordered ;)
