Some weekends give more energy back than others. This was one of those. We spent all of Saturday at home. We slept in, ate breakfast forever, drank one too many cups of coffee, watched Tv and then the whole family went out to shovel snow and walk the dogs. In the evening we invited Markus family over for dinner and then we went to bed early.
Yesterday we ate breakfast and then got into the car and drove about an hour south to our friends cabin. My friend Sarah is probably the best birthday-gift-giver ever. On my birthday a couple of weeks ago, they gave me a check for a day out in nature. Today it was time to cash the check.
In the car, ready to go. Waiting for daddy to pack the last things.
When we got there we just jumped on the snowmobiles and headed out. We found a nice spot and made basecamp. After a while the fire was going and they were cooking lunch, making coffee and made sure we all got something to eat. Erik had more cookies and cinnamon buns than he had food – but I really couldn’t care less. He ate, had a great time and ran around the ice – constantly finding new things to do.
The dogs were hoping to get some leftovers. Lucky for them, Erik generously shares his food with dogs. And people to for that matter. Tippen got a little cold, but Sarah has made a sleeping bag for him out of an old pair of Dobsom pants so he curled into it and stayed there.
Dressing properly is key to having a great day outdoors. But when it comes down to it, there is nothing that will keep you warm forever. Moving around is the only way to stay warm for longer periods of time. Erik and Markus made an ice-track to run on and then we all had do watch and cheer.
I am so truly blessed to have friends like you. I felt like a princess all day, I didn’t have to do almost anything. Spending time with friends like this is worth so much. Even though we live close to each other, it’s not that often we spend time together like this. Damn glad that Sarah and David makes it happen. A perfect birthday gift to someone who’s already got everything they need. Thank you guys ♡
Cinnamon buns are truly his weakness.. just as his mom. He has grown so much lately. Definitely not a baby anymore. Kind, loving, caring and fun. Glad he gets to know our friends the way he does too. And glad he wants to tag along on all our adventures. My sweetheart.
I’m taking this weekend vibe with me into the coming week.
I feel relaxed, energized and happy. This week will be filled with work, fun and exciting new projects. We have a workout vacation launching soon, as well as several different projects kicking in, that needs to be prepared.
