But Thanksgiving was good. We (Landon's family and I) went up to Island Park in Idaho. I know. I hadn't heard of it either. Really, I 've found the only humans who know where that is are the people who have been there. It's nestled up in the mountains about 30 minutes outside of West Yellowstone and it is seriously breath taking up there. One because the scenery is beautiful, and two because it is so. freaking. cold. But it only snowed the night that we drove up there and it was blue bird the rest of the time we were there.
I snapped these photos on my phone while I was out running. (That's right. I am training for another half, so I have to run during holidays. And my abs STILL disappeared.) The first one I was trusting a frozen lake probably more than I should have and the second was in the yard of a different cabin that had humans inside and I tried to be so sneaky about sliding through their property to take pictures of their firewood. Let's be honest though, I'm not graceful and the snow hadn't been shoveled. I'm sure they noticed the 6'0 human-Bambi-on-ice in their front yard.
We stayed in this cozy cabin complete with an (electric) wood burning stove and a hot tub on the deck. So despite it literally being 3 degrees outside, we were all kinds of toasty the whole week through. (Don't worry. I kept my spee-ider legs to myself in the hot tub.)
We only left the cabin once to go watch Kenyon in a cross country ski race in West on Friday. Other than that we only ventured off the property to go for runs (worst idea in those temps) and little walks to get pictures of the cutest little meep (my niece, Abby) you ever did see:

To keep ourselves busy in the cabin we played pool, foosball, cards, ate all of the food and watched football and all six Stars Wars over the course of four days. It was so relaxing and harder than we thought it would be to pack up and peace out that Sunday. Though, I can't say that I think Landon was heartbroken that I wasn't going to make him take his coat off for pictures and hold snow in his bare hands anymore.
He is so sweet to play along with all my stupid ideas. That- or he fears the Arachnis Deathicus.
