|If it wasn't 4 degrees outside I could have sat out there all morning|
|little red schoolhouse...so cute, right?|
We went back to the ski area to look at the pictures the professional photographer took the day we were skiing. We didn't get a family shot that day so we had one taken while we were there. Here are the ones we decided to buy (pictures of pictures...and I'm so glad I took these because the prints got ruined today by a spilled glass of water):

We ventured to a hiking trail. So much fun. I grew up out in the country and used to hike and explore outdoors all the time. It felt good to be back in nature like that. It was a nice reminder that we should be a little more "outdoorsy" from time to time.
This boy and his expressions. I don't even remember what these were about but they sure do crack me up. Especially the second one.
|Maybe I don't wanna smile, mom...|
|aaggghhhh! this camera lady is crazy!!!!|
|How I love this little boy...and the sweetness in the background|
|She insisted on using a walking stick even though I'm pretty sure it slowed her down :)|
|always eating snow|
|The trail ended at one of the lifts|
|of course his walking stick quickly became a guitar|
|sweet, sweet girl|
Red River is such a neat little town. It's about 3 blocks wide and I'd guess about a mile long. They call it "Main Street in the mountains" and it definitely has that quaint charm. It looked like a town right out of a Hallmark Christmas movie. It was perfect!
|This place surprised us...best food we had the whole trip|
|She wanted a picture with Santa outside one of the gift shops|
After our hike, those kids were POOPED. They both fell asleep within 2 minutes of being back in the car. This was the only nap we got out of them the entire trip. Another reason to become more outdoorsy :)
We spent the rest of the day hanging out at our condo. Stayed in for dinner, had a movie night, and I soaked up every moment of quality time with my sweet family.

|Harrison took this picture :)|
|a great end to a great day!|
