A Cabin in the Woods

  The highlight of our vacation so far was the six days we spent at a cabin in the woods of northern Wisconsin.  Don't get me wrong, we have enjoyed the rest of our trip immensely.  We love seeing our family and friends, the snow and cold, and being able to shop but we've been feeling pretty stressed from all the travel.  It was great to just move into the cabin and live there.
  There were five adults and four children: my family, my brother and sister-in-law and their two kids and my dad.  It was so relaxing.  The cabin was huge, with room to play, room to cook, and room to relax.  We took the kids out playing in the snow and Sky and Fire loved sledding.  My sister-in-law found a tiny pull-sled for Fire and he loved just riding around in it looking at everything.  We got the kids out of the house every day and had time to ourselves when they napped every afternoon.
  My sister-in-law and I are very close and we got to spend a lot of time just talking. We played board games, drank beer, cooked good food, read books, and watched the Rose Bowl Parade (Sky's first parade).  I think D and I are going to make sure we do something like this again every time we come back to the states.
