Bless Our Cabin...

Over the past few years I have made it a tradition to go up to my family's cabin around my birthday. This year was a great trip with great friends and there are just so many reasons I love "The Cabin." If my father ever reads this blog this is where he will read how thankful I am that I have had this great place to escape to my whole life. Thanks Dad. So here are some highlights this years trip and some of the specific reasons this place rules...

Yellowstone National Park is amazing and with Ranger Kevin as a tour guide you will learn that there is no known case of a healthy wolf attacking a human...whew!

My friend Ranger Kevin showing off his crocs and really working that bear sculpture as a prop.

This is what you eat the entire time at the cabin. You get to the point where if you don't have a treat in your mouth you think something is wrong.

Some of the curtains look like this.

You get matches from this little thing.... freaking adorable.

I am not sure when these got hung in this specific location but I love the old pitcher and what I like to call "the old man and the sea" mug. Where did that mug come from?

Great walks on trails like this. It is cool to go in late september because it rains quite a bit and the colors are great.

Looking out the kitchen window will tell you the temperature and you can watch birds and squirrels go wild for seeds and such on the deck.

The little cowgirl time out doll at Smith & Chandler is so creepy and a must see each year. I wonder why no one has bought it?

Other curtains look like this. Behind sofas that look like that.

Big Springs. It's gorgeous. Also, this year we saw the biggest trout I have ever seen there. The surrounding beauty and fresh mountain air will also convince your friends to let you take pictures of their faces encircled by leaves. Good or Bad idea... not quite sure yet.

Had so much fun! Thanks for always letting us come along. I counted and this was year nine for me at the cabin. Crazy. It doesn't seem like it has been that long. Hardly anything there has changed and I hope it stays that way. I love all the crazy curtains and awesome couches. You forgot to take a picture of the mantel with the awesome gun and bless our cabin stichery.
