A cool weekend ( and I mean below 100')

Trent's company owns some cabins up in Christopher Creek, about an hour and a half away from here. We decided to go up for Friday night and Saturday. We stayed in a small cabin(compared to the other 2 huge ones they own). Since Trent's mom is out of town we were glad that Grandpa Wes could come and hang out with us. We left about 7:30 pm on Friday. The baby slept almost the whole way and Tucker fell asleep at the end. I was pretty nauseous sitting between them in the back seat of the truck, which required a quick stop in Payson. Anyway, it was raining when we got there and most of the night. We woke up to a beautiful cool morning. This was not roughing it. The cabin is about the same size as our house, complete with new furniture and cable tv. That made it easy for naps and stuff. The creek ran right by our cabin and Tucker enjoyed throwng fallen green apples and pinecones in it. We rode around on grandpa's four wheeler and motorbike and ate lunch at a cute little restaurant up there. It was so fabulous sitting on the little swinging bench in the perfect weather in the wooded area. After lunch when it was a little warmer Tucker even splashed around in the creek and Trent and his dad cleaned up the yard, raking leaves, mowed the lawn, and did some weed whacking! Those of you who know Trent probably aren't surprised. The men in Trent's family have a disease where they can't stand to not be working for too long. Anyway we had a great time and I can't wait to do it again!
