sometimes you just have to make it happen.

Life can get busy...there is always something that has to be done and always a reason why we shouldn't do this, that or the other thing.

But sometimes, you just have to throw caution to the wind, let the laundry pile up and let other responsibilities go and hit the road and have some FUN.

We are so blessed to have family members, generous and fun family members, that have a beautiful cottage on the lake where we are always welcome to come and visit. That's exactly what they boys and I did for the past couple of days. We loaded up the car with warm clothes, sleeping bags and pillows and, of course, a survival bag (we were traveling in the snowy mountains after all!).

Once there we ate, sledded, finished a puzzle (that had one piece missing!), went snow-shoeing, shopped, cooked, ate, lounged, helped a man in a BMW stuck in the snow and laughed at many saved episodes of  Modern Family. And I took lots of pictures...many of the boys which is a bit of a rarity around here.

It was great...a wonderful way to end this winter break before getting back to the real world on Monday. It's been a nice two was great while it lasted.
