Green Lake

Last week, our good friends, The Humphreys, invited us up to John's parents' house in Wisconsin for a quick winter getaway. Scott had to work, but Wednesday, I went up for a couple of days with the kids. We had a great time - it was just the break we needed. There were many games of Yahtzee! (Sam must be losing here)~
Mary fell in love with Elliot all over again~
When we shared with Reagan about our New Year's Eve Polar Dash, she was game to try it up at Green Lake~
It actually wasn't that cold, just lots of snow~
Elliot even got in on the action~
Ice skating on the frozen lake~
And Saturday morning before we left, John took them tubing behind the car~
On the deserted road~
What fun~
It was an action-packed, yet also relaxing, weekend. John took the kids swimming, and Audrey (their house sitter) made sugar cookies, which they had fun decorating one afternoon. We watched some Indiana Jones, and another great movie "The Ultimate Gift" (which I highly recommend). Mary was a good little traveler (relatively speaking), and I'm really glad Tracy convinced me to go. What great (and generous and helpful) friends we have!
