Let it snow, let it snow!
I previously wrote a post about heading to visit Will's family in Big Bear for Thanksgiving this year. During our little trip I was able to take some photos of the tranquil area surrounding Will's grandparent's cabin where we stayed. It was quite chilly up there the first couple of days, and the ice on the road prevented us from leaving the cabin, so we spent most of our week curled up next to the fire reading, eating, and watching movies. Now THAT'S what I call a vacation. :) Unfortunately, because of the stormy weather in Utah, Will's immediate family decided to stay home and avoid the drive. So it was a very mellow and quite Thanksgiving with just Will's grandparents and us. The only kids at our Thanksgiving this year were Will's grandparent's two poodles, and our little Suki. Yeah, our dogs are basically our babies.
This is a photo of the deck of the cabin covered in snow.
Will's grandparent's have an amazing view of the mountains at their cabin. The image on the top left is a glimpse of the view from their deck. Talk about a winter wonderland.
Can their be anything better than the smell of fresh pine in the air??
Talk about an incredible sunset. The image below is from the deck of the cabin on the eve of Thanksgiving. No photoshop here. Just the pure beauty of mother nature at its finest.
Scarlett absolutely loves the snow, and she became quite attached to me as well. Every time I went outside with my camera, she tagged along, regardless of the freezing cold.
Then there's Suki. We were actually surprised at how much she liked the snow since she HATES rain...but on the colder days she preferred to stay cuddled up inside with Will. I don't blame her.
Scarlett and Willow...little cuties.
Let me just say, I completely adore Will's grandfather. He has a heart of gold and the jolliest laugh you will ever hear. Plus, he's a crack up. Must run in the family.
As I said before, Scarlett took an immediate liking to me. Needless to say, Suki wasn't too thrilled with that. By the end of our trip I couldn't go anywhere without these two pups in tow. Not that I minded the extra warmth. ;)
This was by far one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever had! I probably gained five pounds from the abundance of delicious food (good God can Will's grandma cook!) and lack of excersise, but every pound was well worth it. I'm already planning our next trip to the cabin in December!
