Our Quick Trip to the Cabin

This last Thursday, we were able to take a quick trip up to the cabin, thanks to Kira being home to watch Tibi and Landon and get them off to school. She was kind enough to run things here at home while Kevin and I headed up the mountain to spend the night and have some fun with some of the family. The guys are in the process of building a bunk house next to the cabin that will end up sleeping 21 extra people when it is finished. Of course, the women go just for the cool weather and relaxation, so we naturally wanted to be a part of that...

Here's just hanging out around the cabin. The temperature outside was a wonderfully brisk 40-45 degrees.
More hangin' out...
We took off on the 4-wheelers when we got there and spent about 3 hours out in the countryside checking out the fall leaves and getting dirty. Here's Kevin looking like a 13 year old!

We got pretty high up on the mountain and got to a place where we could see the whole valley. That reservoir WAY DOWN there was our destination.

Getting ready to roll after a bathroom break...

Heading down the trail.
Way up there!

Parowan valley, WAY DOWN there...
This was hard to film bouncing all over the place, but this was heading back up.

We spent the night rooming with Scott and Yvette and laughed ourselves to sleep. Chris and Debbie's whole family ended up trickling in one at a time all through the night until around 2:30 a.m. After a yummy breakfast, we took off for home by way of Lincoln County, Nevada so Kevin could do a few appraisals and a not-so-quick project in Alamo, just getting us home in time for the BYU-Utah State game. GO COUGARS!!

Glad you guys got to get away and have some fun...come to think of it that's exactly the kind of thing I'm dying for right now....NO RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER!!

It was so nice to see you guys! It seems like it's been awhile. I wasn't able to get out in the wheelers so I missed out on the leaves....bummer. They look gorgeous!

Where exactly is the Cabin? I long for a "family Cabin" that our big family can all retreat to. Don't know if we will ever get one! That seems like a very pleasant and relaxing weekend.
