As if we don't have enough snow at our house, we took the girls up north a few hours away, where they have even MORE snow.
We stayed several days with our best friends who have a vacation home in the Traverse City area.
We had lots of snowy adventures on the sledding hills.
The girls even got to experience ice skating on a lake.
We took lots of long walks in the woods.
And drank lots of hot chocolate.
I even found my future cabin (just kidding) but isn't it quaint?
It was a lovely bit of respite and a wonderful way to kick-off 2014.
I'm back to work tomorrow (Friday).
I could use another week at home to get caught up from all our holiday celebrations!
