We spent the last few days at a cabin up on Mt. Hood. Nervous about snowshoeing in with the kids and all our gear. Unnecessary as they turned out to be real troopers. Hiking out proved a bit rough, especially after two days of continuous snowfall (Funny how we didn’t notice the trail being mostly downhill on the way in.) After an hour and a half of breaking our own trail uphill the car was a welcome sight!
We had fun. Found a great sledding hill not far from the cabin. Ate maple snow. Watched old Disney cartoons found on VHS. Created snow angels. Put lots of logs on the fire. Played in a snow cave. Unplugged.
Hadley discovered the joy of catching snowflakes on her tongue. She ate them all day and found them very tasty. Even without maple syrup.
Nice to get away. Can’t wait to do it again next year. Our new tradition.
