{oh hey, friday | vacation highlights... so far}

Today's Oh hey, Friday post is brought to you from here:
We've been up in the mountains all week, and it's not too bad.
In fact, it's pretty wonderful.
And incredibly beautiful.
A whole lot more so, now that I don't feel like I'm dying from being super sick.
I'm like a whole new person.
Here are just a few things that we've been occupying our time with.
 
1. |  Ice skating.
Have you ever seen cuter miniature skates?
As you can see Beckam clearly rocked the ice skating.
 Brody did too obviously.
We cruised around pretty fast after stealing this stool.
Fun fact:
 When I was a kid I used to love watching figure skating.
I would roller skate around my driveway imagining I was ice skating.
I would even do the fancy foot work when I took a turn.
And on the days I didn't roller skate, I stood in the bed of my dad's pickup and practiced some cheers that I had made up.
I thought I was a pretty big deal.
Our neighbors had some pretty good local entertainment.
 
2. | The walks.
 The place we rented is right in town.
We have been walking everywhere, and It is glorious.
Quite the change from the farm since it would take us longer to walk to our neighbors house than anywhere we've walked here.
 
3. | Sledding.
The snow here isn't the best for skiing or snowmobiling.
Especially since it got a little rain on it and then froze again.
But you know what it is really perfect for?
Sledding.
Hard, slick, fast sledding.
It is so so fun.
 We captured some pretty fun videos that I will share later too, but for now, these actions shots will do.

4.| Hot chocolate.
So much hot chocolate.
This might seem strange, but I have never made my kids hot chocolate before.
In fact, I can only think of one time that Brody has had it.
Once they tasted this glorious drink, there was no going back.
They are in love.
And they'll have to get their fill this week, because I am most likely still not going to make it for them at home.
 
5. | Hot springs.
This is basically the perfect family outing.
We have spent two different days at two different hot springs.
The boys totally love it.
And it tires them out.


And there you have it!
Plus a blog post written while I simultaneously watch a movie with my farmer.
Success.
 
And now, it's your turn!

  3. Yay for weeks away in beautiful McCall (or it looks like it to me :) )! I can't wait to go up for Winter Carnival! Looks like your family really makes the most of it. I miss doing all those things as a kid on our trips up there.
