Presidents Day at Pine Creek

Rich only had to work a half day today, so we headed up to Pinecreek campground at 2pm to roast brats and marshmallows...Addie kncoking icicles off the shelter
James being a snow puppy
Heidi trying to make a "snow couch."

Sadly, Rich got stuck in the deep snow at the turn-around. He eventually got out, but here are the tracks we made to get out.
The mighty Lexus!
Heidi's adorable snow crab

Roasting marshmallows and drying our gear

(James loved putting sticks in the fire)

Addie's Uggs got wet, so she wore Rich's gloves while her boots dried.

This is how the valley looked as we came down Pine Creek Road

Around this bend is the engagement spot, blanketed in clouds.
All in all, a magnificent Family night (afternoon) (except for the getting stuck part, but it's all good, right?). I am so thankful to be feeling better and thankful for a wonderful husband who likes to do ambitious things and delight his children, and I am thankful to live in a free and beautiful country founded on inspiration. Yay, health! Yay, Presidents! Yay MelinFam!

WOW! Your day looks so polar opposite from mine- are we living on the same planet, let alone in the same country?! :) The common themes though, are fun, family, and thankfulness for our country and good presidents :)Glad that you're feeling better and hope it continues!
