A Weekend in the Mountains

We took off Saturday morning with my Mom, Mom-in-law, Dan, my brother Bran and our friend Danielle and headed to my Grandfather’s cabin in Idyllwild, CA. It was a fun little getaway…playing board games, cards, hiking, hammocking. Gpa also has a compound bow, quad and a wood shop! Oh yeah! It’s so lovely to have a place where we can get some fresh air, do some hiking and spend some time with each other. We stopped off at my favorite Mexican food restaurant for some hot dulce de leche churros and the best fruit and veggie stand down the road before climbing the mountain.

^^^We went for a hike to the nature center in back of the cabin. What a view! I’m loving all the fall leaves and colors. We don’t get much of a fall/winter season at home, so coming up to mountains is really nice. We’re actually expecting a lot of rain this year (with El Nino approaching) and I’m super excited to see some weather besides sunny skies…is that weird? I want some rain and snow baby! Give me some cold gloomy days — the best snuggle weather.
